New in Portland, advise or show me around

by MosKing

Hi, VTers in Portland. I am waitting some letters to me in Portland. Have to stay here for a month. Very boring, any VTer have time to suggest some activities, or even meet up and show me around? Don't have much money on site seeing. So please don't suggest any expensive stuff. Thanks a lot!

I remember a nice zoo. Then there was some kind of museum right across from it.

You might also post this in the Meetings section, under Meet Members.

I live here and I can show you around when you are available, though what is it you are interested in doing?

Be sure to carefully check through the several hundred tips on things to do in Portland that are already listed on the VT travel guide.

Today is Wednesday. This is the day of the week that Willamette Week hits the blue newspaper boxes all over Portland. I highly suggest getting a copy. There are all manner of things in there - both in the articles and in the advertisements. This includes restaurants, night clubs, movie theatres, live theatre, music events, and many other things. Some events are expensive, some less so. They have a good web site at http://www.wweek.com that has some of the stuff that is in the newspaper, but the advertisements that can also be helpful are not on the web site.

Right now, with the temperatures being a bit below freezing, it is unusually cold and many people are not going to be going out to many of these events. That is both good and bad: places won't be crowded, but at the same time that also reduces your chance of meeting people.

With regards to the zoo: this is the time of year they have the Zoolights, which can be a good show. They decorate the zoo with Christmas lights. It's the only time our zoo is open at night. It can be quite crowded on weekends, even if the weather is bad.

As to the "Museum" that is near the zoo that was suggested: there are actually two museums near the zoo: the Children's Museum (which used to be where the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry was located) and the World Forestry Center.

If you can let us know a bit more about the types of things you are interested in doing, it would be helpful.

Yes - I remember the Museum of Science you speak of. I used to take and push my son in a stroller through there, it was so interesting.

One place that I can think of that qualifies under the "Cheap Entertainment" area, though it really is best with friends, is the Bagdad movie theatre.

I've put a bit about it here:

As they don't show new release movies, they can get away with charging only $3 per movie, rather than $8 or more that some of the big, new theatres charge.

Travel Tips for Portland

Signs Of The Times

by IncogNeat-0

A work in progress.
Update: December 2007

Something new has been added in time for the 2007 tourist season, so new exact details can not be provided at this time: Large, yet unobtrusive tourist guide posts about 7 feet tall & 18 inches wide.

Key PDX tourist zones are color coded: downtown core = blue; Portland State University area (south) = international orange; and Pearl District (north) = purple. The only obvious error is Chinatown = red. No, that's in San Francisco, a few miles south of here. Highly recommended.

One side of the guide posts feature high-lites of the area in which you are standing; the opposite side feature general, not specific, directions to other high-lites in nearby color-coded zones.

Guide posts are sprinkled along 10th avenue streetcar tracks, SW Broadway, and downtown MAX tracks. The logic of where they are placed, other then along the streetcar line, so far escapes me. There may be more later. A crew or crews may still be in the process of installing them.

No idea how long they've been in place, or who is responsible for putting them there A Banana Split made with a split banana in a glass "boat," a scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with chocolate syrup, a scoop of strawberry topped with strawberry or pineapple syrup, a of scoop chocolate topped with marshmellow cream, plus whipped cream over it all, nuts sprinkled on top of that, and a cherry to top it all off for 35 cents. That was about 1950.

Animals in Pools

by Gypsystravels

Part of the Local Improvement District for the MAX light rail ten fountains with twenty-five bronze sculptures of Pacific Northwest animals were installed in 1986. They were designed by Georgia Gerber.

Here are just a few I was able to photograph.

Saturday Market

by derats

The Portland Saturday Market (actually held on both Sat-Sun) is arguably the city's single most important and best-loved event. For years the Northwest has attracted artists and craftspeople, and every Saturday and Sunday nearly 300 of them can be found selling their creations here. In addition to the dozens of crafts stalls, you'll find ethnic and unusual foods and lots of free entertainment. This is one of the best places in Portland to shop for one-of-a-kind gifts. The atmosphere is always cheerful and the crowds colorful. Located at the heart of the Skidmore District, Portland Saturday Market makes an excellent starting or finishing point for a walk around Portland's downtown historic neighborhood. Don't miss this unique market. On Sunday, on-street parking is free.

Hours First weekend in Mar to Christmas Eve, Sat 10am-5pm and Sun 11am-4:30pm

Location Underneath the west end of the Burnside Bridge between SW First Ave. and SW Naito Pkwy

The Rose Festival

by TashieKitten

The month of June is dedicated to the Rose Festival. There are parades, art shows, fun center, carnival rides, princesses, a queen, an airshow and much more. Many events are held at Tom McCall Waterfront Park as well as many other locations all over the city.

KELLY POINT PARK

by mtncorg

Looking at a map of Portland, you will find the city on the east side of the Willamette River points towards the northwest like a giant finger. At the tip of the finger is the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers and that confluence is taken up by the semi-wild cottonwoods of Kelly Point Park. The original settlement of Portland was located at a site that was approximately halfway between Vancouver and Oregon City - the only two towns at that time. By canoe, which was the principal means of transport, that meant Portland was a logical stopover between the two other towns as it took about two days to fight up the Willamette River. If you make it out to Kelly Point Park, you will find it a long ways away from downtown, as the canoeists had an easy go of it coming downriver from Fort Vancouver until this point. The Park protects an area that is probably similar to what Lewis and Clark saw from their boats over 200 years ago - they actually missed the Willamette confluence but there were no dikes and river navigation markers to let them know in those days - dense cottonwoods, a few small beaches and the odd mosquito or two. The Park is popular with locals who enjoy picnicking, swimming and fishing. From the last parking lot - the first parking lot gives access to the entrance of the Columbia Slough into the Willamette - follow the paved trails that skirt along the Columbia until you get to the actual confluence marked by a ship’s anchor and an old dredge impeller laying in the sands. Look out as the waters rip together and watch as huge ships make their way up or downriver over a hundred miles from the open seas.

The park is named for a New Englander who came here in the mid 19th century anad briefly tried to establish a seaport here at the confluence. The major sea docks would have to wait another 150 years.
