Portland Like a Local: By the People Who Call It HomePortland Like a Local: By the People Who Call It Home by D.K. Eyewitness
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 A DK Eyewitness 2022 travel guide to Portland, Oregon. Just shy of A5 size this would easily fit into a travel bag.

With a mix of information, tips and maps, it provides ideas about where you can eat, drink, shop, see culture, take part in the nightlife and what to do outdoors. There’s a breakdown of seasonal activities and, more importantly, insider tips from the locals!

I liked the upbeat narrative style which felt very welcoming; I also appreciated the ‘nearby getaways’ section, for places of natural beauty.

This felt more than just a tourist guide because of the friendly presentation. I would happily recommend it.

  1. It sounds like an excellent book, and it being a part of a series, it is one I’ll keep in mind for the future. Thanks, Sally! Oh, and thanks to Barb for the mention of Voodoo Doughnuts. Very intriguing!

  2. Be sure to visit Washington Park- International Rose Test Garden.

    More than 10,000 individual rose bushes bloom in the International Rose Test Garden (IRTG) from late May through October, representing over 610 different rose varieties. The majority of roses in the Garden are commercially available. About 10 to 20 varieties are replaced each year with some of the best new roses released onto the market. Roses bloom from late May to October depending on the weather.

  4. Portland needs some positive publicity. With hundreds of homeless encampments on city streets and in parks, rampant drug use, and the burning and looting during the summer of BLM, it doesn’t have a good image. Perhaps this will help.
