Publisher Comments:

Portland, the secret gem of the West Coast, is almost too good to be true. Imagine a city where a bookstore occupies an entire city block. A city where brewing beer has been elevated to an art form; a city containing both the worlds smallest dedicated park and largest forested city wilderness. No sales tax, old-fashioned gas stations, the only volcano within city limits, and a world-renowned transit system. You would have to be imagining Portland, and you wouldnt be dreaming. Secret Portland is the only guide that takes the time to explore the citys scores of lesser-known treasures — the secrets that make it a place worth dreaming about. Leading you to the spots that only locals know, Secret Portland is readable, quirky, and intimate, exposing little-known histories and legends, the best ethnic eateries, chicest cheap hotels, and locally favoured nightspots. Dont miss the opportunity to watch the weather machine in Pioneer Courthouse Square, choose a favourite blossom at the International Rose Test Garden, ride the only three-door elevator west of the Mississippi, or embark on an epic pub-crawl to the citys celebrated microbreweries. Let Secret Portland show you a side of the city youll never forget. Secret Portland is the latest in the acclaimed and award-winning Secret Guides series. To date, weve unlocked the secrets to New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Providence and Newport, Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, and Montréal.

Synopsis:

Exploring the quirky eccentricities of the City of Roses, this intimate pocket companion to Portland examines numerous lesser-known gems treasured by locals of this unique West coast metropolis. An offbeat alternative to most basic travel guides, this accessible volume exposes local histories and legends while revealing the best eateries, choicest hotels, and hottest nightspots. From watching the weather machine in Pioneer Courthouse Square or choosing a blossom at the International Rose Test Garden to riding the only three-door elevator west of the Mississippi or embarking on a microbrewery pub crawl, this handy travel tome shows that experiencing the unknown can be truly unforgettable.
