                                  Plummeting 620 feet from its origins on Larch Mountain,
                                  Multnomah Falls is the second highest year-round
                                  waterfall in the United States. Nearly two million visitors
                                  a year come to see this ancient waterfall.
                                  Fed by underground springs from Larch Mountain, the
                                  flow over the falls varies, usually it's highest during
                                  winter and spring.
                                  Multnomah Falls offers one of the best places in the
                                  Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area to study
                                  geology exposed by floods. Five flows of Yakima basalt
                                  are visible in the fall's cliff face.



Leisurely head back to Portland

Lunch:

Willamette Jetboat. The boat will rocket you up and down the river as well as cruise slowly

Other ideas:
- Pearl District, a section that features old breweries that have been transformed into lofts, galleries,
eateries, and shops. Labeled by a local scribe as “hip, funky, and stylish,” the Pearl District will compel
you to roam its narrow, crisscrossing streets and alleys. Browse the appealing imports at Cargo on NW

- Portland Classical Chinese Garden on NW Third Avenue will be your next stop for the afternoon. As the
Chinese say, each visit will add permanent change to who you are.

commerce pepper neighborhoods such as Alameda, Hawthorne, and Sellwood, clarklewis features a dark,
seductive atmosphere enhanced by glorious flavors from the kitchen. Order small portions of several items
and share.

After dinner head to Brasserie Montmartre (626 SW Park Ave – 3 blocks from hotel,                 -
     ), on Park Avenue for drinks, live jazz, and tableside magic. The excitement and mystique of
Brasserie Montmartre’s nightclub will have you feeling as if you’ve stepped into a Parisian café.

- Pittock Mansion, a public landmark poised on a northwest district hill. Briefly tour this early 20th-
century chateau-style home, and soak in a spectacular view of the city.

- International Rose Test Gardens, where you’ll pause for a brief walk through its fragrant varieties.
Then move on to the serene Japanese Garden. The inviting rainbow colors and gentle curves of the
Strolling Pond Garden encircle mystical pools that immerse you in calm.

 - Hhorse-drawn carriage. Sink into its open-air compartment and savor the night in 19th-century style up
one avenue and down another, along the river, and beneath the lights.
