Visiting Metro Portland | Fall 2014

Portland maintains a reputation far and wide as a progressive hub of arts, culture, fashion, and cuisine. This season, Portland’s personality shines through a variety of special events, festivals, and activities, – serving as invitations to visitors, as well as quick ways to become familiar with the Portland state of mind.

To get a better sense of all that makes Portland so unique, experience the city through a guided tour. Hop on a Big Pink Sightseeing Trolley Tour to see Rose City landmarks like Pioneer Courthouse Square and the Pearl District, or board the Portland Spirit, which floats along the Columbia River, giving visitors an unparalleled view of the city while offering brunch, lunch, or dinner.

Still, to really dig in, let knowledgeable locals lead you through Portland on foot. Portland Walking Tours take visitors along a variety of enchanting routes – from the Underground Portland tour, which showcases the historic Old Town area, to the Beyond Bizarre tour, for which thrill seekers suit up with “real ghost hunting equipment” before encountering an onslaught of paranormal oddities.

On November 30th, athletes in for some antics gather at the Oregon Convention Center on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard for the 2014 Ugly Sweater Run/Walk. Put on your downright ugliest sweater and be there by 8 a.m. to participate. The race starts at 9 a.m. and post-race festivities include beers and awards for best mustache, best beard, and, of course, worst sweater.

Sure, Portland “keeps things weird” and is known as a place to satisfy niche interests, but that doesn’t mean Stumptown isn’t full of sports fans. People from surrounding communities like Newberg, Gresham, Sandy, and Oregon City gather with Portland locals and basketball fans from all over the nation at the Moda Center, formerly known as the Rose Garden, to witness high-flying NBA action as the Portland Trail Blazers host home games through mid-April.

Around 40 minutes south, Salem, the state’s capital city, is a respite from the hustle and bustle of Portland, while still offering plenty for visitors to see and do. Families visiting over the holidays can enjoy a spin on a holiday classic just for youngsters by visiting the historic Elsinore Theatre to see A Children’s Nutcracker, presented by Salem’s American Ballet Academy. Showtime is at 7 p.m. on December 13th and 2:30 p.m. the next day.
