Things to do in Portland

Portland, Oregon has an abundance of amazing parks, restaurants, museums and live music venues. So whether you’re a foodie, biker, hiker, shopping fanatic, history buff or live music fan, Portland has you covered.

Portland is known for one of the best cities for great cheap eats. Be sure to visit one of the hundreds of food carts around the city for amazing value. It also has an amazing happy hour culture. Many of the restaurants offer happy hour specials twice a day – around 5 pm and another around 10 pm.

Downtown Portland

Downtown Portland – at the epicenter of Downtown, you may come across a rock concert, holiday tree lighting or Feast Portland food festival at Pioneer Courthouse Square. Housed in historic buildings with modern interiors, the majority of the city’s hotel options are located downtown. And on Saturdays, you’ll find one of the country’s best farmers markets on the Parks Blocks on P.S.U. campus.

Pearl District – densely populated with high-end clothing, home shops, salons, cocktail bars and farm-to-table restaurants, the Pearl District is one of Portland’s most walkable neighborhoods. Use Powell’s Books as your starting point and wander the Pearl from there heading away from West Burnside.

Washington Park – the 410-acre urban green space is filled with miles of trails and some of Portland’s best attractions. You’ll find the oldest, continuously operating rose garden in the country, the Rose Test Garden and Hoyt Arboretum. The Portland Japanese Garden and Oregon Zoo also reside within the park – both worth a visit.

Old Town Chinatown – the tranquil, urban botanical garden features plants native to China in Chinese architecture, the Lan Su Chinese Garden is located in Portland’s historic Chinatown. You can also take a 90-minute guided tour through the Shanghai Tunnels, the tunnels beneath Old Town Chinatown that were used in the 19th century by human smugglers to transport unsuspecting victims.
