Destinations outside Portland

One of the best things about [Portland] is how quickly visitors can get out of town: true bucolic landscapes ... commence just past the city limits, and within an hour or two, it's possible to be surfing at Cannon Beach or skiing — even in summer — on Mount Hood, the magnificent dormant volcano that looms over the town."

Portland's appeal is partly due to its close proximity to Mount Hood, the North Willamette Valley's vineyards, wild rivers, lush fields and the rugged Oregon coast.  All of this makes a Portland a great starting point for a wider exploration of the region.
