One minute you’re belting out Elmo tunes in a duet with your tot and then suddenly you’re performing a solo: welcome to the car nappers club. The next time your kiddo sacks out mid-errand, don’t rush home and unbuckle (we mean wake) them. Just head to one of these scenic spots where you can let them nap while you take in the view, catch up on emails or catch a few winks yourself. Click through the slideshow to see our picks.

Council Crest

After hitting the massive playground in Washington Park, exploring the Portland Children's Museum or checking out the zoo, use your GPS to guide you to SW Council Crest Dr., where you'll find the park at 1,073 ft. above sea level - the highest point in Portland.
