*  Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI): With an OMNIMAX theater, a planetarium, a submarine, and loads of hands-on exhibits, this Portland museum is fun for kids and adults alike. . .

*  Oregon Zoo: The state’s top tourist attraction has elephants, apes, naked mole rats, bats, wolves, and hundreds of other animals in natural-looking habitats and enclosures. The zoo is a large one, and it can easily take up to 3 or 4 hours to see it all. . .

*  Washington Park: There are two world-class gardens for you (and maybe the kids will enjoy them too), but there’s also a big kids’ playground, a miniature train that runs to the Oregon Zoo, the World Forestry Discovery Museum, and the Children’s Museum—plus lots of walks and trails through this beautiful park near downtown Portland. . .
