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.
Lake Oswego's urban park gives parking lot caregivers sweeping views of the Willamette River, as well as other interesting sights, like the basalt columns engraved with poetry, a reflecting pool and a grass amphitheater. There's free WiFi, too.
