Things to Do in Oregon
Portland is the state’s most popular and cosmopolitan city. Lan Su Chinese Garden, the Oregon Zoo and the Portland Art Museum are some frequented tourist attractions in the city.

Oaks Bottom and Smith and Bybee lakes are two protected wildlife sanctuaries frequented by visitors. Day trips could include hiking the trails around Mount Hood and in the Columbia River Gorge.
