    Rose Festival Parade in Portland is usually 2nd week in June.
    I grew up in Portland and love Mt Hood, Oregon Coast especially Depoe Bay and south. Portland Zoo,OMSI,Pioneer Square. Cool evening and pleasant daytime temp. Coast is cool. And best of all. NO SALES TAXS AND YOU CANNOT PUMP YOUR OWN GAS!!!

    1 acres of fabric at Fabric Depot......and if I'm not mistaken, their summer Outdoor sale will be going strong!

    Great people...great fabric............they also have a large selection of 50% fabric in the back towards the batting....folts they have to move to make room for the new arrivals ....

    Also.........if you like peace and quiet for a short time...the Japanese Gardens is a must! I don't know if the Experimental Rose Garden will be in bloom or not....weather's been on the cool side.

Go up to Mount Hood - in the Lodge you can get a nice ploughman's lunch upstairs (at least we did in '96 on our 10th anniversary)with an incredible view of the summit of Mt Hood... and the stars at night up in the mountains are incredible!!
    And definitely drive down the coastal side of the Cascades - gorgeous!!! Crater Lake is incredible.
    (Ok, I just reread this and have to add that we didn't just sit there and watch that woman - it was just all of a sudden that she whipped her top off - we didn't have time to react before we saw it all! lol!!)

    I've never been to Washington - yet. But we definitely want to go to the Olympia Rain Forest!
    You will love the Olympic Rain Forest. Especially along the Hoh River. Be sure to watch for the herd of Roosevelt Elk that used to always be around there. They used to walk through the campground like they belonged there. LOL

    Any tips are greatly appreciated. :D
    I haven't read all the post, so most likely these will be repeats. But Multnomah Falls is one of the best attractions and is located outside of Portland to the east. Also the best fabric shop around is Fabric Depot, you can go to their web page and get driving directions. Also in June is the Rose Festival with something going on for several days. Have fun in our beautiful state. Jenelle -Portland, Oregon
