With 37,000 acres of metro-area green space, the City of Roses offers an embarrassment of riches when it comes to natural diversions. Start in Washington Park, which is home to the Portland Rose Garden, the oldest continuously operating rose garden in the country, with more than 8,000 plants. The park is also home to the Japanese Garden: five and a half peaceful acres of artfully laid paths winding past waterfalls, rock gardens, and pagodas with views of the skyline and Mount Hood. Across town, the Ming Dynasty–style Lan Su Chinese Garden, an oasis surrounded by buildings, has a tea house overlooking Zither Lake's bridges and colonnades.—Colleen Clark
