Details

Are you ever at a loss as to where to bring friends who come to visit? Or maybe you just want to be able to show off your knowledge of new places? This walking tour will highlight the past and present of Portland's Pearl district with a particular emphasis on the architectural character and re-purposing of the historic built environment.

We will also tour the interior of the historic Armory, one of the best examples of adaptive re-use in the district.

The Pearl district was practically deserted 20 years ago. Come see how it's transformed into a dynamic walker-friendly neighborhood with contemporary and adaptive high rise housing, fine dining and world class entertainment. The Pearl District in Portland has become a model of high quality urban living and a must-see destination for visitors to our unique city.

The walk will last about 2 hours and cover relatively easy terrain.

All events start promptly at the time indicated. Bring rain gear if it rains.

Cost is $10.
