Portland, OR

For those who like their summers sunny and comfortable, it doesn’t get much better than Portland’s combination of low seasonal rain and highs in the upper 70s.

They take their open spaces very seriously in Oregon’s largest city. It is home to one of the largest wilderness parks within city limits in the United States, and those who enjoy that might also want to check out the Portland Classical Chinese Garden, an authentic recreation of a Suzhou-style walled garden.

They are also home to the largest independent bookstore in the West, Powell’s City of Books, as well as several craft beer festivals, which bring in tens of thousand each year.
