It’s designed to give you a vision for the city that began in the mid 1970’s. Portland is one of the Greenest Cities in the United States. The list is long when it comes to green though we will see evidence of some of the following: Public Transit, waste management, clean water, open spaces, energy, LEED buildings and more. Historic Architecture. We will point out and discuss some of the diverse architecture in Portland from historic antiques, post-modern examples and updated, modern gems.
Our food carts Speaks to Portland’s love affair with food and to the entrepreneurial spirit. Food carts help create a vibrant downtown and central city by bringing what planning geeks call a “social fabric on the street” which is great in cultural terms, but in economic terms also attracts other spenders, retail outlets, and restaurants and cafes. The Portland Art Museum was in 1892, making it the oldest art museum on the West Coast and 7th oldest in the United States. The Portland Art Museum features a center for Native American art, a center for Northwest art, and a center for modern and contemporary art, permanent exhibitions of Asian art, and an outdoor public sculpture garden.
