Secret Portland (Oregon): The Unique Guidebook to Portland's Hidden Sites, Sounds, & Tastes (Secret Guide)by Ann Carroll Burgess
Synopses & Reviews
This intimate pocket-sized guide to the City of Roses features quirky eccentricities known only to locals, such as weather machine in Pioneer Courthouse Square, the International Rose Test Garden, and the only three-door elevator west of the Mississippi. Also included are details about a bookstore that occupies an entire city block, bus routes, and sites for science fiction aficionados.
Book News Annotation:
With topics ranging from aboriginal tribes to yurts for camping, a Canadian travel writer offers an off-the-beaten track guide to the Rose City area. But some sites (e.g. Mount St. Helens) are hardly secrets. Distributed in the US by Independent Publisher's Group.
