A big city with a small-town feel, Portland is home to the country's biggest rose test garden, perched on a hill overlooking downtown.
You'll get in some beach time at Haystack Rock and Cannon Beach. Bring the kids along to Hug Point State Recreation Site and Seaside Inverted Experience. Venture out of the city with trips to Cannon Beach (Oswald West State Park, Cannon Beach Gallery, & more), Jewell Meadows Wildlife Area (in Seaside) and Astoria Column (in Astoria). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the waterfront views at Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, walk around Hoyt Arboretum, trek along Forest Park, and look for gifts at Powell's City of Books.

Nicknamed the "Emerald City" because of its abundant evergreen trees, Seattle is the cultural and business center of the Pacific Northwest, as well as a popular holiday destination.
Chihuly Garden and Glass and Pike Place Market are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Hiram M. Chittenden Locks and Discovery Park. Explore Seattle's surroundings by going to Camano Island (Iverson Spit Waterfront Preserve & Cama Beach State Park), Seahurst Beach Park (in Burien) and Brackett's Landing South (in Edmonds). There's lots more to do: take in panoramic vistas at Space Needle, identify plant and animal life at Bloedel Reserve, stroll through Alki Beach, and see what you can catch with a fishing tour.
