Day Trips from Portland, Oregon is your guide to hundreds of exciting things to do, see, and discover in northwest Oregon and southwest Washington. This book is rich with tips on where to eat, shop and stop in dozens of cities within a two- to three-hour drive from Portland, including Astoria, Bend, McMinnville, Oregon City and many more. Don’t miss a thing, including world-class wineries, art galleries, historical sites, recreation destinations and restaurants. Find hidden gems, like an amusement park populated with elves and fairies, a beach made of black cobbles, the West’s only UFO festival, Oregon’s last drive-in movie theater, and a 28-foot tall concrete Bigfoot. Discover the lost art of a great day trip with Globe Pequot Press’s Day Trips From Portland, which includes full trip planning information, maps and directions. A great resource or gift for Portlanders, Oregon lovers, and wanderers alike.
