Car: Recommended

Mossy Cobbles is located between the west border of Portland and the east border of Beaverton. Here in Garden Home, it is a short walk through the woods to the Garden Home Community Center with a small library, gym, soccer field, playground, and classes. Across the street are a Starbuck's, Shari's Café, Baskin-Robins, Ploy's Thai Restaurant, and a supermarket. Beaverton Farmers Market is open Saturdays from February to November. Next to the market is a random-pattern pavement fountain noisy in the summer with happy small children, while across the street is a 2-story glass front library which includes a quiet sitting area and 100's of current periodicals. Guests can access downtown Portland and all it has to offer in 20 minutes, barring rush hour traffic. Be sure to see Powell's City of Books, stroll and shop in the Pearl District, the Hawthorne District, and Nob Hill. Portland Art Museum is in the South Park blocks near Portland State University. Also down town, the Schnitzer Concert Hall and Keller Auditorium showcase the Oregon Symphony and world class touring musicals. Many local theatrical events are available in more intimate settings. Ride the aerial tram from the South Waterfront to Oregon Health Science University for a spectacular 180 degree view of the Willamette River, Mount Hood and the active volcano Mount St. Helens. Enjoy a meal at one of the many creative and competitive restaurants and food carts that put Portland on the culinary map. Guests may venture further east to historic Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood, or famous Multnomah Falls in the spectacular Columbia River Gorge. Driving west, it is not far to the wine country for a glass of Oregon's world famous pinot noir. Drive further west to the Pacific Ocean for a stroll on the beach, shops, or seafood caught the same day. Nature hikes can be found outside the back door on the Fanno Creek Trail, in Forest Park, on Sauvie Island, Oaks Bottom. Oregon's old growth forests provide inspirationally beautiful hikes; wily foragers can find chanterelle and morel mushrooms, crayfish and huckleberries. Lovely local gardens include Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, Washington Park Rose Test Gardens, and The Bishops Close (Elk Rock). Children enjoy the Oregon Zoo and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. Go swimming at the Southwest Community Center or try ice skating at the Portland Winterhawks skating center a few miles away. Search the internet for the winery tours, walking tours, antiques shopping, cooking classes, rowing, kayaks and canoes, standup paddleboards, horseback riding, caving, and rivers to swim in.
