Things to do & places to camp around Portland at Spring Break (mid March)

We are looking for ideas to do inside and outside around Portland at Spring Break? We have not been there before. I see a couple of things - tubing and skiing at Mount Hood, there is a street long book store in Portland but wondering what else there is to do with 2 teenagers for a week (besides shopping)??

How about local live community theatre? ( would make a great change from the movies!)

Also any recommended RV parks that preferably have a clubhouse?

Any and all ideas would be greatly appreciated! MANY THANKS!

We did Seattle last year with the Seatlle City Pass and it was awesome but now want to try someplace new .....

You could hike trails at a variety of waterfalls along the Columbia River Gorge.
You could hike the Eagle creek Trail that is in the Gorge area- has a couple of waterfalls along the way.

Check out the Travel Portland website for events during the time you are there.

You could check out a food cart tour of Portland.
Rent bikes and ride on the paved trails along the river.

Go to Saturday Market.

Jet boat ride on the Willamette - not sure they operate in March though.

If the weather is nice you could do a guided kayak trip on the river.

The bookstore you are looking for is Powell's City of Books on Burnside @ 10th.
Are you coming to Oregon with your own RV? There are other options for cheap lodging including the 2 HI Hostels in Portland and a yurt at Champoeg State Park. Champoeg also has a good size campground.
The snow tubing I am most familiar with is at Mt. Bachelor outside Bend.
