The Pacific Northwest has it all: Scenic coastline and rushing river rapids, dormant volcanoes and snow-capped mountains, hidden waterfalls and caves to explore and destination cities with unique food and a variety of places to stay. With the chance to bike, raft, hike, zip-line and so much more, it’s no wonder that our backyard is one big natural playground for families seeking adventures.
Here are six of our favorite summer getaways, all within a few hours drive from Portland. Plus, outfit your kid as you hit the road, river or trail with gear picks from our friends at Next Adventure, 426 SE Grand Ave. or online!
