Portland is a good travel city which is the largest city in Oregon and second largest city in the Pacific Northwest. This is a very urban city but it is not great as some larger cities. There are many lush parks, forest park and the park is variety of plants, trails, and wildlife in the hills west of Downtown. I am first time visit in this city. My family is so happy in this trip. So for visiting purpose I search cheap hotels in portland on Internet and I got numbers of hotels in Newport and I reserve cheap hotels. But I reached that city by NewportStateAirport. But I hire taxi and reached to my comfort inn portland hotel at noon. I put my bags in room and get fresh and take lunch. After that I planned my journey for next day.

First day we want to see The Columbia River Gorge. It was a full day tour but it was a lot of fun. They must not get a lot of tourists in Portland or maybe it was the time of year that we visited because this was only offered on Sundays and they were only 4 of us on a 49 passenger bus.

Second day we went to see the InternationalRoseTestGardens. This place was beautiful. It would have been perfect if it had not been for the entire dog poop all over the grass. There must have been over 200 kinds of roses. Of all colors Orange, Red, White, Yellow, Purple, Pink, and more. They also had several other kinds of flowers. We went in late May and the roses had just started blooming. So there were a bunch but not as many as there are in June and July when they bloom in full season. I would love to see that.

Third day we went to see the LaurelhurstPark which was a very beautiful and nice park. The park was surrounded by beautiful houses, not far from a well known establishment the serves up beautiful biscuits. Beautiful people walk their beautiful dogs past beautiful trees and, wait for it, a disgusting, green water pond. My least favorite experience there one day, I was walking with my infant in a front pack, and some guy fell down the slope in front of me. I rushed to help him, but it was a violently drunk bum, who started threatening me and throwing glass bottles and me and my baby.

Forth day we went to see the PortlandArt Museum was a very beautiful and nice museum. The Museum’s collection of more than 42,000 objects, displayed in 112,000 square feet of galleries, reflects the history of art from ancient times to today. The collection was distinguished for its holdings of art of the native peoples of North America, English silver, and the graphic arts. An active collecting institution dedicated to preserving great art for the enrichment of future generations, the Museum devotes 90 percent of its gallery space to its permanent collection.

Fifth day we went to see the ChineseClassicalGarden which was located downtown. You would have never thought such a lush, green, beautiful, perfectly kept garden would be in the middle of a city. It was only $8 to get in and there was a discount for children, students, and seniors. The garden was a variety of plants. There was also a room of artwork, two rooms modeled as rooms would be in the Ming dynasty, and a cafe. There was a beautiful waterfall and ponds with water lilies bouncing about. When you walk throughout the garden you certainly lose yourself in its beauty.

After that we went to the ClackamasTownCenter which was a very most famous shopping center in this city. But I bought some clothes, gifts, shoes and chocolates goods. After that I went to the Horse Brass Pub which was a very beautiful and nice pub and get the more fun of the night life at night. I came back to hotels and I checked out from the hotel alone and went to airport for leaving this city.
