Portland is fast becoming one of the most popular city break destinations in America, yet there is much more to it than a bustling city scene. In fact, it is the surrounding natural areas that make it a popular spot for campers. It is a place that can’t be missed, which is why it is only right to bring your best friend along with you explore the wilderness. The best way you can do this is by staying in a dog-friendly vacation rental, where you can roam through the landscape together. Head to the nearby Mount Hood National Forest, where you can hike up mountain sides at any time of the year, and where you can catch amazing mountain views, or follow the Hood River, which runs along the northern border.
