Explore the architecture, history and culture of Portland and environs with architectural historian Eric Wheeler. These walking tours feature downtown Portland and the surrounding historic neighborhoods as well as other communities in the greater Portland area. Eric's tours are designed for new arrivals, visitors and long-time Portland residents. The easy walking pace is designed to allow plenty of opportunity to see the sites, hear the guide and engage socially with other participants. This is a Meetup after all! :-) The tours typically meet and end at a restaurant, pub or coffee shop, to allow for optional social time with the group before or after the tour. There is a fee for these researched and guided walking tours. Typically $20 per tour. There is no fee to join the Meetup and follow the schedule of walking tours.
The high-density SE neighborhood surrounding the intersection of 26th Ave and Clinton Street is a trendy crossroads for dining and entertainment with one of the most bike friendly vibes in the city.
We'll start our exploration of this neighborhood across from the landmark Clinton Street Theater and continue through the neighborhood observing both the early 20th century Craftsman houses and early 21st century infill. Along the way we'll see some excellent examples of "modernist" commercial and church architecture.
Wear good walking shoes for this urban exploration that will cover around 2 miles in about 2 hours.
Cost for this narrated walking tour is $20.
