Portland is a wonderful food city! I love it. Tax-free shopping, lots of fun sites to visit and an amazing food scene. I drive down here from Seattle a few times a year just to hang out and enjoy a new restaurant. Highly recommended for people who also love Seattle and Vancouver!

Cannon Beach is a gorgeous windswept, surf-pounded beach along the Oregon coast. The beach is nearly 10 miles long, and the most popular site along it is Haystack Rock. Better for building sand castles and bonfires, and walking or running than swimming.

University of Oregon dominates the town (in a good way). Yes there is much to enjoy in the way of sporting events (football, track, hoops, etc.). There are also wonderful summer festivals. Great new lodging options around 5th St market. Microbrews and other eateries have stepped up their game. All framed by a beautiful river which has great running/biking/walking trails.

Mount Hood, called Wy'east by the Multnomah tribe, is a stratovolcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc of Northern Oregon. Mount Hood is considered the Oregon volcano most likely to erupt, although based on its history, an explosive eruption is unlikely. Still, the odds of an eruption in the next 30 years are estimated at between 3 and 7 percent, so ...

Portland, Oregon and the surrounding areas are incredibly beautiful! Great place to go for a little serenity! It's really an up-and-coming travel destination and not fully set up yet for tourists but it's great for some niche markets. The Portland area is really progressive and alternative so it attracts young people from all over America which makes it a great ...

It's kind of hard to tell where Portland and some of the suburbs begin. I've been through and stopped for a bit, but that's all I can tell you right now!

Dundee is a small little town based in the Willamette Valley. It's marked by the wineries in the area and is a perfect place to go wine tasting. Highly recommended and it's only a short drive from Portland.

West Linn is Clackamas and right next to Lake Oswego, I pass through (and stop for breakfast) every time I go to my Son's school. West Linn has a history of early development, prompted by the opportunity to harvest energy from nearby Willamette Falls. It was named after U.S. Senator Lewis F. Linn of Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, who had advocated ...

UPDATE - 12/2012 Same As It Ever Was! Gayle and I returned to Crater Lake National Park a few weeks ago at the tail end of our annual Oregon Shakespeare Festival trip to Ashland. We thought it would be cool to take the long way home and visit the most stunning Crater Lake once again. This time, we treated ourselves ...

Beer and snow go hand-in-hand in this town, which counts 12 breweries and two more opening in Spring 2013 along what’s been dubbed the Bend Ale Trail. Is it any wonder the population’s rising? The compact historic downtown fits in an impressive number of Craftsman-style bungalows, galleries, and innovative restaurants (look out for Boken and Zydeco Kitchen & Cocktails). And ...

Tigard is a west side bedroom community for Portland. My step-daughter lives on the Beaverton/Tigard border, while the Hotel I stayed is on the Tigard/Lake Oswego border. That means that in these parts, it all kind of runs together. I'm sure there are interesting things to be had here if you're a resident, but as a visitor, Tigard is just ...

Biggs Junction is located on the south side of the Columbia River at the junction of Interstate 84/U.S. 30 and U.S. 97 where it crosses the Sam Hill Memorial Bridge over the river from Washington. It's really a gorgeous area to drive through.

Many couples have a special place that the return that is "playing their song". Ours is Ashland Oregon and since 2006 when we early into our still tentative relationship. Back in the late 1980s, I used to come up in the Summer with friends whose family had retired up here. That was when the Outdoor Elizabethan Theater at Oregon Shakespeare ...

A nice beach town in coastal Oregon. A nice contrast to much of the West Coast. It's not as crowded and the beaches are more rocky. The weather also tends to be more rainy and cloudy. It's beautiful though, with lot's of nice vistas that offer great beach views.

Hood River is a popular town for Portlanders to windsurf, bike, and partake in other outdoorsy activities. The views of the forests and mountains, particularly Mount Hood is impressive. It's about 1 - 1.5 hours outside of Portland.

Fantastic beach that is really easy to get to. The town is a tourist trap, but that can be OK if you know that and just roll with it.
