This was our first family visit to Portland. We went to the Visitor Center and they were the most helpful. Explained the city, explained and gave us a city map, marking our desired destinations. One of the best VC I have ever used. Very Helpful!

It should be part of your walking tour around the downtown area. there are plenty of smart parks nearby to stash your car and it is also near the hub of the max and streetcars that can easily take you around the area.

of everything. So you have to see pioneer square, its like all the transit cars, busses and trains in one spot. The staff is friendly and frisky. They love their jobs and are great. But the transit people not so much. They will sell you passes and tickets. Don't pay cash the tickets I bought were not what I wanted... More
