Now a bustling suburb of Portland, Gladstone, Oregon, was once an important part of Native American culture, as it served as the gathering place for all the region's tribes to trade and hold ceremonies. That location is marked by the famous "Pow Wow" tree, a stately maple that stands there today. Gladstone also boasts scenic parks and ample access to the lower Clackamas River for fishing and water play. Be sure to check out the annual Gladstone Chautauqua Festival in August.
