The city of Portland is known for its lively music scene, scenic beauty, a very eco-friendly urban planning policy as well as a rather large number of microbreweries.
Once in the city there are quite a few attractions and sights that you should consider visiting such as the Museum of Contemporary Craft or the Oregon Historical Society.
The city also has the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry which is a great place to visit if you have kids, the place has literary hundreds of hands-on activities and exhibits and there’s a solid focus on technology and earth sciences in general. Besides all of these, moored in the river just outside the building is the USS Blueback, an old submarine which is open for visiting. The grounds here also feature a planetarium and an IMAC theater, but these will require separate admission.
The Pittock Mansion is a beautiful Victorian mansion situated in the hilly region of west Portland. It is a century old and has been preserved brilliantly.
The Portland Aerial Tram departs every six minutes, and it’s a tram that connects the South Waterfront neighborhood to the Oregon Health Sciences University campus.
While in Portland you have to visit the statue of Portlandia, the second largest hammered-copper statue in the United States, it is a statue of a woman bearing a trident, crouching over the entryway and welcoming visitors. Despite its size you’ll be amazed of how easily you can miss it, so you should keep an eye out for the postmodern building painted in red, blue and tan.
These are of course only a few of the things that you can see while in Portland, so make sure to employ our Portland car hire services in order to better explore the city and its surroundings.
