Downtown Walking Tour: Urban Secrets

Join me for this new and unusual Portland walking tour. Among the unique things we'll visit:

  • A old bath house converted to a hotel
  • The banned books section of Portland's biggest bookstore
  • A theater that shows movies for $5 while you sit in comfortable reserved recliners and enjoy food and alcohol
  • A hotel from the show Portlandia
  • An condominium building with windmills on the top
  • A hotel that shows summer movies on the top floor of its parking garage
  • Secret ways into Forest park
  • A restaurant owned by a former Portland mayor, serving the best Reuben in town
  • Matt Groening's high school and an image he etched in wet cement
  • And who knows what else?

This walking tour will last about 3 hours and cover 4 miles. There will be some hills and stairs to climb.

All events start promptly at time indicated.

Fee for this event is $10.

    More info please on the hills and stairs to climb. I really like the sound of what's included in this walk, but I have a bad knee, so need to know realistically about inclines, and stairs. Also, where would we park?

    March 25, 2013

    • Tom

      We will be walking into Washington park from downtown. There are stairs to get into the park and coming down from the park. Because the whole walk is in town, you always have the option to break off if you decide it's too hard for you.
