[[Mt. Hood]], [[Mt. St. Helens]] and the [[Pacific Coast]] are all within a two hour drive from Portland.  These are all great places to be during the few months of the year when it is not raining. (Basically, July 4th - October 4th.) And they're also great places to visit during [[Cascadia]]'s wet months. And don't forget about [[Oxbow Regional Park]]. According to PortlandWiki News, it's "[[Old_news#Monday_.7C_September_6.2C_2010|a wonderful place to raise your homeless family]]"!

[[File:Horse-spotting.JPG‎|thumb|[[Horse_rings|Horse spotting!]] Just one of many fun activities you can do in Portland!]]
+
Start [[Downtown]] and visit the [[Ground Kontrol]] for a great experience for the kids, at any age, or drop by the [[Living Room Theater]] to check out a show.  If you are not into movies and want a cool hangout, drop by [[Backspace]].

The first week of the month offers [[First Thursday]]. Head towards [[Fareless Square]] for many galleries, then onward to the [[Portland Police Historical Museum]] for historical events known as the start of the [[Portland State University]] campus.
