Portland is the largest city in Oregon and accordingly one of the state's best vacation destinations. Also known as the City of Roses, this city along the Willamette River wows visitors with its diverse street food, quirky counterculture, and sprawling bookstores such as the world-famous Powell's Books.

Portland is the 5th best city in the United States for outdoor activities, thanks in part to open-air grounds like the expansive Forest Park. Gardens are also excellent outdoor date locales for couples on a romantic getaway: stop and smell the roses at either the International Rose Test Garden or the Portland Japanese Garden.

Once you've gotten hungry from a long day wandering outside, nearly every block downtown has a plethora of food trucks waiting to tickle your taste buds. Or, kick back at one of the many breweries in the #3 best city for craft beer in the United States. Unique locations like McMenamin's brewpubs in renovated cinemas or historic hotels do their part to "keep Portland weird."

As the biggest city in Oregon, Portland is a hub for travel throughout the Pacific Northwest. Amtrak train service and various bus services operate primarily out of Union Station, conveniently-located downtown, and nearby Portland International Airport makes it easy to travel to Portland from near and far.

Leavenworth

Leavenworth is a truly unique destination since it looks exactly like a Bavarian mountain village. Most buildings are alpine-style lodges, and restaurants and cafes serve delicious German-style beer and food. The city is a year-round tourist destination not just for its German-themed events such as Oktoberfest, but also for its gorgeous outdoor scene. Visitors can explore a reindeer farm, hike in Icicle Gorge, wander through Eagle Creek, and enjoy the Leavenworth Ski Hill in winter. There's also the famous Nutcracker Museum, which has over 6,000 nut-cracking tools.

Leavenworth's closest airport is the Pangborn Memorial Airport, about 45 minutes away by car. The Amtrak Empire Builder has service from Philadelphia, Seattle, Portland, and more for more direct access to the town.
