Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Need a day away to relax, refresh, renew? Just get in your car and go! This first edition of Day Trips from Portland, Oregon is your guide to hundreds of exciting things to do, see, and discover in your own backyard. With full trip-planning information and tips on where to eat, shop, and stop along the way, you can make the most of your time off and rediscover the simple pleasures of a day trip. Explore places you never knew existed, many free of charge, and most within a two-hour drive of Portland.

Do something outdoorsy: Go biking, hiking, kayaking — or swimming! — at Sauvie Island, or visit the recreational wonderland around the town of Silver Lake, where you can get a glimpse of Mt. St. Helens.

Do something (mildly) intoxicating: Go on a tasting tour at one (or more) of the 200 wineries in the Willamette Valley.

Do something historical: See people in period clothing reenact mid-19th-century daily life at Fort Vancouver, or 1920s farm life at Pomeroy Living History Farm in Yacolt.
