Walkthrough the Pearl District, a former industrial neighbourhood that's now rife with art galleries and modish boutiques. It is also home to legendary Powell's City of Books, the largest new and used bookstore in the world. As an introduction, we discover Portland with our new best friend, an award-winning "Resident Expert. They live in Portland; they know Portland; they love Portland, and it shows.

Enter Crater Lake at the north entrance. Along U.S. 97, you will encounter Newberry National Volcanic Monument, where you can literally get in touch with the region's ancient, cataclysmic geological history by walking through a lava tube and ascending Paulina Peak for panoramic high-desert views. Allow two to three hours to reach Crater Lake National Park, which is anchored by the nation's deepest lake. Crater Lake is a must-see for all ages, and what a better way than to enjoy the majestic beauty of one of the "Seven Wonders of The World" than from aboard a historically designed trolley bus. You will enjoy a two hour, Ranger-guided and narrated trolley tours around the Rim of the Lake. The Rangers will talk about the history and formation, answer questions and there will also be 5 to 7 stops during the ride to allow for picture taking or to just take in the unmatched beauty that Crater Lake has to offer.Later, we recommend enjoying dinner and the rustic ambience of Crater Lake Lodge, a classic timber and shingle-roof National Parks hotel built in 1915.
