Moved to Portland early September 2012 from Louisville, Kentucky. I have a 8-4 job at a desk which makes me antsy as all get out. Looking to find ways to be active and move around after work and on the weekends.
The goal of this group is to explore and experience the unique culture of Portland and the northwest. Think of it as tourism for locals.
About 50% of the people on every event are newcomers to Portland or to the group. It's a great way to meet new people while enjoying new experiences.
I host at least 20 events on the calendar per month. Most of the events are done on foot, but some are simply showing up at a particular destination for fun.
Narrated walking tours of Portland's neighborhoods(including inside tours of factories or other local businesses)
Dining and entertainment walks (highlighting great restaurants, happy hours, wine tastings and entertainment opportunities in the Portland area).
Meet the chef dinners(where we get the chance to talk to the chef about what makes their style unique)
Random fun activities thrown in (Acrobatics class, Trampoline, Laser Tag, Scavenger hunts)
Day trips to explore nearby towns and activities available around Portland
And the best part is that you get to do all these events with other people who enjoy getting out as much as you do.
Explanation of fees:
First off, there's no fee to belong to the group. You only pay if you attend an event. Fees cover the cost of planning and providing over 20 unique narrated events per month. Fees are listed at the bottom of each event and do not include admission to venues, which will be stated in the event posting.
I think if you compare this to a commercially guided tour, you will find that it is still an exceptional value.
Special offer:Only interested in evening walks? If you pay for any event within 30 days of an evening walk, you can attend that walk for free. You can take advantage of that by going on any fitness walk and paying $5 for the first one. For the next 30 days, all the fitness walks are free!
These walks are all labeled "Evening Walk" in the event calendar.
Personal Tours: Do you have family or friends visiting or just want to do a tour with a small group? I can help show off Portland through a personalized walking tour, or I can help you to plan a fun itinerary. Just contact me through the "Contact us" button on the left.
