The Portland metro area has some of the best views in the world, just off the coast of the Pacific Ocean and filled with charming beaches and parks. But for the absolute best views, you might want to go a little inland. The best sunrise view in Oregon is in one of the state’s most unique parks – Powell Butte Nature Park. Located on an ancient extinct volcano that hasn’t erupted for eons, it might not look like a massive volcano, but the butte that has grown upon it provides some of the state’s best vistas. You’re going to get a perfect view of Mount Hood, and when the sun rises over the park, it’s like nothing else in the Beaver State.
