Things to do near Portland, Oregon

Portland is known for its original microbrews, friendly locals, and yes, it’s occasional rainy climate. But big-city excitement mixed with small-town charm makes Portland a favorite destination for summer vacationers who enjoy museums, theaters, and waterfront parks with lush green lawns, outdoor cafés, river walks, and marinas. Getting downtown is easy from our hotel in Hillsboro; just jump on MAX, the urban light rail that spans from Hillsboro to Gresham.

Portland’s short, tree-lined blocks make walking effortless, so you can stroll along Tom McCall Waterfront Park with views of snow-capped Mount Hood or wander up and down 23rd Street, a dynamic area in the northwestern region of the city. For wine-lovers and golf enthusiasts, Larkspur Landing hotel Hillsboro is just minutes from beautiful Oregon wine country and world-class golf courses like Pumpkin Ridge, Portland Golf Club, and Columbia Edgewater.
