Oregon’s largest city, Portland, is famed for its thriving arts scene and for being overlooked by the towering Mount Hood. It offers excellent links to its surrounding natural world, and it also showcases nature within its city walls. In such a unique city, it make sense to stay in a place to match, so don’t forget to stay in a camping option that caters to this. Even better, you can now bring your best furry friend along with you to enjoy your holiday. In the city center, pop by Oregon Zoo to see its range of exotic but endangered animals, or venture into nature and hike some of the trails Mount Hood has to offer. You can even ski there in the winter months. Make sure to ride out to Hood River to see all that Columbia Gorge has to offer, from canyon views to river rafting experiences.
