One day in Portland, ideas please (22 Replies)
My husband and I will be in Portland for 1 day arriving aroud 10am and leaving from the airport about 10:30pm. We will have a car for the day. From what I have read, we would like to check out The Rose Garden in Washington park as well as the Japanese Garden. Also Waterfront park and the Chinese gardens. Would it be possible to see these attractions in one day and if so, what would be the best order for seeing them; possibly making our way to the airport as the day goes on. Would we have time...More

Will you actually be in dwotown Portland at 10:00 a.m? Your flight leaves at 10:30? That is a fair amount of time to see much of what you want to see. What day of the week and time of the year will you be here? The Japanese Garden and Rose Garden are right near each other and you could spend minimal time there or several hours between the two. I would recommend 1 hour minimum for the JG and a minimum of 1/2 hour to stroll through the Rose Garden. There is parking between the two but on a...More
Balboa Park Museums Ranked (11 Replies)
Hello, We are a group of 7 adults....2 parents and 5 adult children with their significant others. We are looking to spend about 3 or 4 hours in Balboa Park. Looking for a snapshot of the park. Is there a website of the rankings of the museums?. Thinking of visiting the Japanese Garden, Prado for lunch and 2 museums. Any thoughts on museums or gardens that are "must see"?

>>> Is there a website of the rankings of the museums?<<< A ranking? I think rankings would depend on interests. Someone interested in science would rank them different from someone interested in art. For example, the Japanese Garden doesn't interest me at all and I love the Botanical Building and Marston House Gardens. What interests you normally?

You're the only one who can answer that question, based on your own interests. They are very different - one is a serene garden, the other a kitsch tourist attraction.
