Welcome to the laid-back downtown Portland, Oregon! This in-app audio tour guides you west of the Willamette River, narrating the city's history as you pass by the emblematic bridges, coffee shops, craft beer breweries, and quaint urban spaces. The tour begins in the trendy Pearl District and Fields Park overlooking the second long tied-arch bridge in the world, the Fremont Bridge. From there, you will come to enjoy the artwork at the Jamison Square, famous for its wading fountain. Next, you will drop in the flagship Powell's Books, an iconic local bookstore with the concept of selling new and used ones. After that, you can line up for the off-the-wall treats at the legendary Voodoo Doughnut shop. The ornate Chinatown Gate will catch your eye on the way there. As you walk the riverside next, you will see the Burnside Bridge marking the border between north and south Portland. And then, observe the Hawthorne Bridge, an oldest highway bridge in the city. Back to downtown, you will stroll the majestic twelve-block South Park Blocks park. Passing by the Oregon Historical Society, you will discover the city's foundation plot and get a chance to witness the evidence on display inside if you like. To round up, you will take in the bustle of Portland’s Living Room, as they call the fun Pioneer Square, the most-visited urban site in Oregon. Join this tour to enjoy the unique cityscape and try to grasp the fabled weird vibe that Portlanders are proud of!
