KEEP PORTLAND WEIRD TOUR – EXPLORE LIKE A LOCAL
See the Portland that locals live and has inspired the expression Keep Portland Weird. This off-the-beaten-path tour takes you into Portland’s neighborhoods where you’ll see restaurants, specialty shops, theaters, and food cart pods that are used by actual Portlanders. Voodoo Doughnuts is where the tourists go. BarBar is where the locals go.
Now you can experience the city where “the young come to retire” with the help of a local tour guide. We show you the highlights that make Portland unique and inspired the IFC show Portlandia. You will be talking to our local guides who live it daily.
Walk down Mississippi street to see a center dedicated to recycling old houses, a store that sells over 100 seasoning salts, bitters and chocolates, and a store where you can find every lightbulb ever made. You’ll also see a store specializing in taxidermy of every animal on the planet. How about a restaurant that specializes in truffle Mac and Cheese? You’ll see it on this tour.
After Mississippi street, you’ll head over to Alberta street, where you’ll see the Tiny House Hotel. This street is filled with history that your tour guide will share with you. You’ll also see the Grilled Cheese Grill, Salt and Straw Ice Creamery, Pine State Biscuits and many other places that top the list of places locals like to eat.
Another thing that makes this tour special is that it takes you to neighborhoods that are not easy to get to on your own, and you hit all of them: Mississppi Avenue, Alberta Street, Laurelhurst, Hawthorne Street, Division Street. Every Portlander spends a good part of their free time eating, drinking, shopping, and just hanging out at the sidewalk cafes and food cart pods that litter Portland’s East Side.
What a great way to experience Portland like a local and learn what makes Portland Weird. The tour ends with a magificent view of Portland from across the river, where you can see seveal of the brideges that locals use to get downtown on their tall bikes, tricked out cruisers, and unicycles.
