The Gorge has the most gorgeous scenery imaginable. The view from Vista House is wonderfully impressive, and everybody knows about Multnomah Falls. What a way to spend a couple of days!

Easy to drive along to stop and hike around. Gorgeous area! Book a hotel or two ahead of time so you can take your time. Easy drive from Portland if you want to do it in one day, though.
