For two-plus hours of tooling around NW Portland on a cycle with 15 of your newest, closest friends, it's the BrewCycle. The cycle is really a covered surrey of sorts, built out of many recycled parts, with seats for pedal pushers and a bench in...

Portland is not lacking for parks and gardens—I've heard the Chinese garden in the Pearl district is a stunner—but I highly recommend the Japanese Gardens in Washington Park. Portland's a relaxed place anyway, but the Japanese gardens, said to be...

I wasn't exactly traveling when I took this photo. I was only a few miles from my house, but I'm a bit of a late sleeper, so I rarely see downtown Portland, OR, bathed in the soft light and long shadows of early morning. I felt a bit like I was...

As a runner, my favorite way to see a new city is by running it. Downtown Portland offered many places to run, but my favorite was a loop we took around the waterfront. Starting at McCall Waterfront Park, go north to cross the Burnside Bridge,...

When my partner and I visit a city, we love to study the public transportation. We lived in Asia for a few years, and we learned the value of understanding the subways, buses, and the trains. We loved the light rail in Portland! I highly recommend...
