Northwest Spot: Forest Park

Lay out your blanket: Take advantage of Portland's great eats surrounding this nature hideaway. Grab a pesto chicken sandwich or homemade mac n' cheese from Stepping Stone Cafe and enjoy it at a shady picnic spot in the park.

Family time: Forest Park lets you feel surrounded by wilderness while in a major city. Let the family explore various trails and bike paths, ranging from easy to strenuous, so even the kids have something they can manage.

Make it a weekend: Treat yourself to luxury after all day in the park at The Govenor Hotel. Conveniently located in downtown Portland near shops and restaurants, the hotel also offers complimentary wireless Internet access.
