Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Truly an amazing experience! Beautiful area ... very peaceful and relaxing. The history of the site is inspirational, and the various walkways / paths offered a sense of delicate environments for visitors. The gardens are located within Washington Park, overlooking the city and urban oasis.

    My family enjoyed this experience, and we found ourselves nestled into the various gardens ... simply soaking up our time together and relaxing among the trees and beautiful shrubs.

    NOTE: We visited on a cloudy and overcast day. Try to go on a sunny day, as the staff told us that Mount Hood can also be seen from the gardens.

    One of the best parts of our city visit was our stroll through this splendid garden. Obviously it is better in the spring, but the roses were still blooming and the variety is impressive. Beautiful park.

    Amazingly stunning falls. Easy to get to from Portland. Touristy but not annoyingly so. Great picture spot. Drive to falls from Portland is also stunning.

    This is one of the most spectacular NP of USA. A bit unknown and remote, but the experience is amazing. The view from the Crater is 360. I could experience a sunset and a moon rise in opposite directions.
    Totally like this National Park.

    Highly recommend a quick stop, easy walk to the beach to go down to the ocean and look at the huge majestic rock!

    The Hallmark Resort is located directly in front of Haystack Rock. Perfect location, easy walk to beach, weather was in the 60s and sunny blue skies, no crowds, great eats and comfortable bed.

    Had no idea what to expect, but the scenery was astounding. Fantastic waterfalls with striking geology were highlighted with the volume of autumn rains, moss and lichen, and leaves of many colours. The high points allowed striking vistas across and along the valley. Memorable!

    Great views at the top, even if you decide not to climb the tower. Wasn't too crowded on a Sunday. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area.

    What a nice serene place smack dab in the middle of Downtown. It's street parking and thankfully it wasn't terribly difficult to find a spot.

    The front gate is locked and you will be buzzed in. You pay your fee at the ticket booth. You explore the grounds and enjoy the greenery and ambiance of it all. Unfortunately, when I visited there was scaffolding so it was a little bit of an eyesore. The brighter side, it just means I have to come back again to fully enjoy the beauty of the place. There is a small body of water in the middle and beautifully decorated architecture around.

    Nice aquarium exhibits and interesting for all ages. Has a play park for children, has a coffee shop and a cafeteria. Several exhibits inside including a tunnel with different sea life and fish. There are two jelly fish tanks. Sharks, large fish, colorful smaller fish. Petting tanks with starfish and urchins. Outside, there are sea otters and seals as well as bird aviaries. Nice gift shop with art, tshirts, stuffed animals, etc. Veteran, senior and AAA discounts. Perfect size for young children. Very enjoyable.

    When we were in town the weather was quite rainy windy and cold however it didn't take away from the views this park provides. Looking down on the beach as the large waves rolled in and the storm clouds came in over the top really just added to our visit. This park really is beautiful and is quite a gem whether it be at the view point, Indian Beach or looking at the large moss covered trees that surround the road. While not a large park, the views that it provides are enormous.

    As one of the most historic sites to visit in Portland, the mansion and the grounds were breathtaking, especially on what turned out to be a rainy day. Within the mansion, there are many interesting historical facts along with furniture and antiques from different time periods. On the grounds, there are great views of the city and fall colors. There was also an exhibit for Eliza Barchus which contained her artwork and life details, which may have been the highlight of the mansion.

    It's always fun visiting the museum. Enjoy all the critters. Owls, eagles, hawks, turtles, newts, and Otters.
    The revolving exhibit is new on each visit. This time it was an art exhibit of a collection of Andy Warhol pieces.

    Great place to go. Stunning scenery. Parking limited so could be busy in summer. The interactive centre was excellent. Highly recommend the trip!
