With shows running from June to August, if you head west through the Vista Ridge Tunnel below Portland's West Hills you'll find a special grassy knoll at the Oregon Zoo that hosts concerts each summer season. Drawing big names (and crowds of 3,000), this unique venue means you can make a day of your musical affair. Arriving early doesn't just mean you can score a prime spot on the lawn, the Oregon Zoo Summer Concerts offer the opportunity to visit the polar bears or hang with the orangutans before showtime as free entry to the zoo is included in with your ticket. Plus, you can ride the MAX to avoid traffic and packed parking lots.
