Get out of downtown and into the eclectic neighborhoods and leafy parks where Portland truly shines! Experience the Rose City like a local as you visit iconic sites and your guide’s favorite spots.
Begin your day at the manicured grounds of the Pittock Mansion for unparalleled views of the city and Mt. Hood. The historic setting is an ideal place to discuss Portland’s pioneer history and get an overview of the city’s layout and development.
Next, you’ll explore some of the city’s 8,100 acres of protected natural areas in Portland’s famous parks. Take in the fragrant bouquet of roses or cherry blossoms, see the carefully planned landscape design of John Charles Olmsted, witness how sustainability is integrated into the urban environment, and learn about the cinder-cone volcanoes that once covered the area.
After experiencing the city’s natural side, delve into its artsy and independent spirit. Experience neighborhoods such as the Pearl District, Hawthorne, Nob Hill, Alberta, and North Mississippi for a slice of Portlandia, embodied in food truck pods, hip specialty boutiques and craft breweries!
