Summers are very nice (avg. Hi. 26C, cool nights 12-15C) with little rain (July/August). Vancouver, Washington (not B.C. Canada) was founded by the Hudson Bay company as the first settlement in the Pacific Northwest. A reconstruction of the original "Fort Vancouver" is located in a National Park that is adjacent to the city centre. Portland, Oregon is home to companies such a Nike, Columbia Sportswear, etc. and offers tax-free shopping (no state sales tax). A suburb of Portland, Oregon City, was the termination point of the "Oregon Trail" which many settlers followed migrating to the region. Portland also has a world class zoo, interesting museum of science and industry (OMSI) and is home to the well known Mt. Hood Jazz Festival.
