Experience the Pacific Northwest’s most-dynamic cultural hub on our small-group exploration of Portland's highlights! Wander diverse neighborhoods and witness Portland's funky soul with your lovely local guide. Begin with Pittock Mansion for unparalleled views of the city and of Mt. Hood. The historic setting is the perfect place to discuss Portland’s pioneer history and development. We'll press some coffee and prep tea & bakery here, too! Next, take in roses or cherry blossoms, see the landscape design of J.C. Olmsted, witness sustainability integrated into an urban environment, and learn about cinder-cone volcanoes that once covered the area as we walk some of Portland's greener side. After experiencing the city’s natural riches, dive into its artsy and independent spirit! Experience neighborhoods such as the Pearl District, Hawthorne, Nob Hill, Alberta, and North Mississippi for a slice of Portlandia, embodied in food truck pods, hip specialty boutiques, and craft breweries. Round-trip downtown Portland transportation included.
