Enjoy the great outdoors in the shadow of Portland's skyline

Dreaming of a vacation that offers a bit of adventure in the wild with a dash of big city living? Then a Gresham vacation rental may be just what you need! With a northern border that sits along the banks of the Columbia River, this quiet suburban community makes sure you're never far from pristine parkland ripe for exploring. Not quite your speed? Then hop on the MAX Blue Line light rail and in about 30 minutes you'll find yourself in Portland, the hip and happening city where edgy art scenes and food trends evolve daily.

Things to do

Buttes to books: soaking up Gresham's diverse landscape

Looking for a rewarding workout? On a clear day climb to the top of Clatsop Butte Park, just west of Gresham, and behold sweeping views of downtown Portland, Mount Hood, and Mount St. Helens. Experience life as a pioneer on the Oregon Trail as you delve into the past at the Gresham Historical Society, housed inside the 1913 Old Carnegie Library. Craving literature? Make your way to Portland for a trip to Powell's Books, the world's largest independent bookstore, before chowing down on gourmet street food at one of the numerous food carts lining the downtown streets.

Activities

Get moving with a walk in the park or a day at the beach

Take a break from the comfort of your Gresham vacation rental and experience nature in more than 1,000 acres of parks and preserves, with trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Looking for fun on the water? Rent a canoe or take a dip at Blue Lake Regional Park, set along the banks of the Columbia River in nearby Fairview, or curl up with a good book on the sandy shores of the park's cozy lakeside beach. In the summer, visit downtown Gresham's Arts Plaza for its annual arts festival and evening concerts.

Weather

Raindrops keep falling on my head: galoshes on parade

Will your trip to Gresham be a wet one? It's the Pacific Northwest, which means there will be rain forecast! In fact, you may spend a lot of time inside your Gresham vacation rental from November through January when monthly totals range between 6 to 7 inches of rain. You can usually put the umbrella away during the relatively dry months of July and August. It's easy to see why the region is popular with outdoors enthusiasts when mild year-round temperatures include frequent sunny summer days in the low 80s and winter lows that rarely dip below freezing.

Natural features

Mountains, canyons, and rivers. Are we really in the suburbs?

Like so much of the Pacific Northwest, Gresham is surrounded by breathtaking natural wonders, including the snow-capped peak of Mount Hood. While the city itself is relatively flat, lush forested hills lie to the east and west, where plenty of deer, foxes, coyotes, and woodpeckers take refuge from the suburbs. Johnson Creek flows through the heart of the city, but most visitors flock to the region to see the mighty Columbia River as it flows east and gives way to the Gorge, a stunning canyon dotted with waterfalls and forests.
