NOTEBOOK BIKETOWN STATION IN PIONEER COURTHOUSE SQUARE

Welcome to Biketown, USA

F

or years, Portland has been known as America’s bike capital, with hundreds of miles of bike lanes and the nation’s highest rate of cycling commuters to match. But one thing was missing: a full-scale bike-share operation. That all changed when Biketown (biketownpdx.com) launched in the summer of 2016 with 1,000 eye-catching orange bikes inviting everyone to come along for the ride. (The bright color is a nod to Nike’s iconic shoeboxes; the Oregon-born sneaker company underwrote the program.) You could say it’s been a hit. In the first six months alone, the distinctive cruisers were ridden 330,642 miles (532,116 km) — the equivalent of circling the globe 13 times. Here’s how it works: Download the Biketown mobile app and find a bike at one of the 100 stations in and

around downtown. You can reserve one up to 10 minutes ahead of time. Pay for a single ride (30 minutes of ride time, $2.50) or a day pass (3 hours out of 24, $12), use the solar-powered display to unlock the bike, and off you go. Through the app (or website), you can also find suggested routes, like the popular Eastbank Esplanade, which includes a pathway that floats on the Willamette River. Wherever you pedal, expect a sturdy, beginner-friendly ride: The eight-gear “smart” bikes have internal hubs, stepthrough frames, solar-powered LCD displays and built-in baskets and U-locks. When you’re finished, lock your bike up at the nearest Biketown station (or the closest public rack marked with an orange sticker). Congratulations! You’re now an honorary citizen of Biketown, USA.

NOTEBOOK

CHART A COURSE Discover two new ways to see Portland from the water. For a unique perspective on Portland’s skyline, wildlife and brews, there’s no better destination than the Willamette River, which runs right through downtown. Portland’s epic beer scene (75 breweries and counting) is no longer anchored to dry land. The BrewBarge (brewgrouppdx. com), from the owners of Portland’s popular BrewCycle, is a 14-passenger, pedal-powered vessel stocked with local brews (stock up at the dock or BYO).

Key Note

14

The leisurely, 90-minute voyage (top speed: 7 mph/11 kph) shoves off from downtown’s RiverPlace Marina (1811 S.W. River Dr.) and passes sights like the USS Blueback (a retired submarine docked outside OMSI) and Tilikum Crossing bridge. If your sea legs tire, fear not; the captain can supply engine power to your crew. Another relaxing option is to rent an eco-friendly boat from the new Portland Electric Boat Company (portlandelectricboatcompany. com), also docked at downtown’s RiverPlace. No experience is required to captain these comfortable vessels, which top out at a mellow 5 mph (8 kph). A twohour rental will let you circle Ross Island, home to great blue herons and bald eagles. Bring a crew of up to 10 people and your own food and beverage. Pro tip: Bathrooms remain tethered to shore. — Caitlin Feldman

ince opening in 1967, the Portland Japanese Garden (611 S.W. Kingston Ave.; 503.223.1321; japanesegarden.com) has been hailed as the most authentic anywhere outside of Japan. That acclaim brought a rising tide of visitors, making it a little harder to achieve Zen in this space just minutes from downtown Portland in Washington Park. In April 2017, the garden unveiled an impressive expansion that deepens its connection to Japanese culture — and makes it easier for visitors to find solitude. The five original garden spaces remain intact, but the new Cultural Village provides more room for the many thousands who visit each year. Renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, who’s also designing the stadium for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, collaborated with

the garden curator, third-generation master garden craftsman Sadafumi Uchiyama, on the $33.5 million expansion (Kuma’s first public commission in the U.S.). At the heart of the village is the Tateuchi Courtyard, where visitors can experience traditional Japanese activities, performances and demonstrations. The new learning center houses the Tanabe Gallery and a striking gift shop, while the Umami Café features traditional sweet and savory snacks, authentic Japanese teas and serene hillside views. Three new garden spaces round out the expansion: the Entry Garden with cascading ponds, the Bonsai Terrace and the tiny Tsubo-Niwa courtyard garden. The expansion ensures that future generations of visitors can find peace and cultural connection in the hills right above the busy city.

Slice of Portland Dotted with pepperoni, drizzled with hot honey or loaded with vegan pepper-cashew cheese, we’ve got just the pizza for you. BY KELLY CLARKE Order the Bacon Bianca It’s all about the airy, bubble-pocked crust at Portland’s pizza standard bearer.

Dove Vivi Order the Corn Cashew Vegans and omnivores flock here for unorthodox cornmeal crust pizzas boasting super-fresh toppings — like pops of sweet corn, caramelized onions and smoked tomatoes sprinkled on a bed of creamy roasted red pepper and cashew “cheese.” 2727 N.E. Glisan St.; 503.239.4444; dovevivipizza.com. Half and whole pies; daily special slices only.

Portland’s miles of bike lanes don’t just guide cyclists around town — they also entertain. As far back as 1999, the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) has turned some of the city’s bike lane markers into literal street art. The quirky embellishments — created using crews’ spare time and materials — riff off everything from Portland landmarks (like the city’s famous Portlandia sculpture) to puns (like a knight pedaling on S.E. Knight St.). Pop culture references include 2016 additions honoring late rock icons Prince and David Bowie. At E. Burnside St. and S.E. Ninth Ave., Prince cruises under a misting of purple rain, and David Bowie — in full Ziggy Stardust regalia — rides, guitar in hand, at S.W. Broadway and Main St. Others are special requests, like an ode to The Wizard of Oz heroine Dorothy (seen at N.E. Couch St. near the Burnside Bridge), which was made for a PBOT worker’s daughter on “Bring Your Kid to Work Day.” And while there’s no official list of works, riders can hunt for about a dozen in the city. “They have a mythical presence in town,” says PBOT spokesperson Hannah Schafer. “It’s become part of the spirit of Portland.” — C.

would never recommend limiting your Portland explorations to a single stop, but — if pressed — Washington Park (explorewashingtonpark.org) might get the nod. There’s just so much to see in this veritable superpark just 2 miles (3.2 km) from downtown, including the Oregon Zoo, the world-famous Portland Japanese Garden, a lush arboretum, miles of trails and two family-friendly museums. And this classic Portland destination is only getting better, with major expansions underway at two of its signature attractions.

1. INTERNATIONAL ROSE TEST GARDEN This hillside wonderland showcases more than 7,000 rose plants and breathtaking views of Portland’s downtown skyline, outlined by Mount Hood just beyond. Late May–Sept. is prime blooming season, when you can discover approximately 550 fragrant varieties. The garden marks its centennial in 2017 with upgrades to improve accessibility and a community celebration on Aug. 26. 400 S.W. Kingston Ave.; 503.823.3636; explorewashingtonpark.org

2. PORTLAND JAPANESE GARDEN Acclaimed as one of the most authentic Japanese gardens outside of Japan since its 1967 debut, this urban oasis completed its firstever expansion in spring 2017. New features include an entrance with a tiered cascading pond, a medieval dry-stacked castle wall built by a 15th-generation stone mason and three buildings designed by world-renowned architect Kengo Kuma. The original five traditional garden landscapes (Flat Garden, Strolling Pond Garden, Tea Garden, Natural Garden and Sand and Stone Garden) remain refuges of tranquility. 611 S.W. Kingston Ave.; 503.223.1321; japanesegarden.com

3. HOYT ARBORETUM Discover more than 2,000 plant species in this majestic 189-acre (76.4 hectare) botanical garden, where 12 miles (19 km) of hiking trails lead you through shadowed gullies and bamboo forests and up sloping hillsides to reveal stunning views of Mount Hood. It’s open year-round, but 56 species of maple trees make fall especially striking with a fireworks-like array of colors. 4000 S.W. Fairview Blvd.; 503.865.8733; hoytarboretum.org

4. OREGON ZOO Opened in 2015, the massive Elephant Lands exhibit lets visitors observe the zoo’s herd of beloved Asian elephants — including “little” Lily, still a relative baby at 4 years old — splashing in their mud wallows or giant pool or lounging in one of the world’s largest indoor elephant enclosures. California condors reside in a new four-story aviary strewn with natural features like ponds, log snags and boulders. The zoo’s newest resident is Nora, a polar bear born in November 2015. A new education center, opened in early 2017, offers nature talks, exhibits and even volunteer wildlife research and habitat restoration opportunities, along with information on local recreational activities. 4001 S.W. Canyon Rd.; 503.226.1561; oregonzoo.org

5. PORTLAND CHILDREN’S MUSEUM Hammer together a small city, make a theatrical debut or play instruments with a water cannon — imagination knows no limits in this museum of make-believe that features over a dozen immersive, hands-on exhibits, a story-time treehouse, an outdoor hedge maze and rotating classes on topics like tie-dye and bridge construction. 4015 S.W. Canyon Rd.; 503.223.6500; portlandcm.org

6. WORLD FORESTRY CENTER DISCOVERY MUSEUM Excitement and education go hand-in-hand when you’re dangling 50 feet (15.2 m) above the trees or charging through a simulated Class IV whitewater rapid. Celebrating 45 years in 2016, this whirlwind world forestry tour lets you globe-trot without ever stamping your passport.You’ll travel along the frigid TransSiberian Railway and explore the rainforest via an Amazonian canopy crane, all in the name of conservation. 4033 S.W. Canyon Rd.; 503.228.1367; worldforestry.org

7. ROSE GARDEN CHILDREN’S PARK Swings, slides, bridges and lookout towers connect this epic castle-themed playground, one of the biggest in the city. Just south of the Rose Garden, it’s the perfect place to monkey around. S.W. Sherwood Blvd.; 503.823.2525; portlandparks.org

8. WILDWOOD TRAIL Designated as a National Recreational Trail, this iconic path meanders for more than 30 miles (48.3 km) through neighboring Forest Park’s dense foliage of sword ferns and western red cedars, offering occasional peek-a-boo views of the St. Johns Bridge and Portland’s cityscape. Pick up the trail at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, just northwest of the Washington Park MAX light rail station.

9. 4T TRAIL TRAVELPORTLAND.COM

This self-guided, urban adventure loop incorporates 2.5 miles (4 km) of hiking trails and links to MAX light rail trains, trollies (Portland Streetcar) and the Portland Aerial Tram, yielding some of the best views the city has to offer.

Of all Portland’s nicknames, Drip City (a play on legendary Blazers announcer Bill Schonely’s “Rip City” moniker) might be the most accurate — and it’s not because of the rain. With more than 40 roasters within city limits, we’re happily drenched in wave after wave of artisan coffee. Whether you’re craving the perfect pour-over, a delectable coffeehouse snack or even a caffeinated cocktail — Portland has a blend for you.

UPPER LEFT ROASTERS Stylish and modern is the order of the day here, from the light and airy space to the precisioncontrolled Proaster coffee roaster. Upper Left also has one of the best selections of creatively topped toasts in town, including a spicy number with avocado, radish, poached eggs and Mama Lil’s peppers. 1204 S.E.

CUP AND BAR

COCO DONUTS

Home to local roaster Trailhead Coffee and bean-to-bar Ranger Chocolate, Cup and Bar pays homage to both of humanity’s most beloved beans. Chocoholics swoon over homemade “Nutella” toast, and the Ranger cookie, loaded with oats, coconut and, of course, chocolate. (Plan to arrive early, the cookies sell out by noon most days.) 118 N.E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.; 503.388.7701; cupandbar.com

Sometimes all you want with your coffee is a good old-fashioned doughnut. Coco makes some of the city’s best, from the rich buttermilk bar slathered in real maple icing to the pillowy lavender-glazed raised. They roast their own coffee, too, offering a rotating selection depending on what’s in season. The location on N.E. Broadway has the best coffeehouse vibe. 2735 N.E.

Duane Sorenson founded Stumptown Coffee Roasters, helping pioneer the Third Wave coffee movement years before we even knew what to call it. (“Third Wave” refers to the trend of considering coffee as an artisanal food stuff, like wine or chocolate.) One of the first in town to put an emphasis on directsourcing single-varietal beans, Sorenson also sparked a new appreciation for medium roasts that preserved each varietal’s flavor notes. A dozen years later, and with a growing roster of cafés, Stumptown was at the forefront of the next coffee trend: cold brew. They seal the 12-plus-hour-steeped, double-filtered elixir in retro stubby bottles, pull it from nitro-fueled taps and mix it in cartons with milk, artisan chocolate and even mulling spices. Most recently, they packaged it up in nitro-charged cans. With shops in Seattle, Los Angeles and New York, the coffee pioneer’s impact is still growing. Six Portland locations; stumptowncoffee.com

> HEART Heart’s highly nuanced coffees are roasted in a lighter Scandinavian style that allows delicate fruity flavors to stand out, as in the Ethiopian Worka roast, which swims with notes of peach, elderflower and thimbleberry. Get a taste at the minimalist West End café, alongside Finnish pastries like cardamomscented korvapuusti. 537 S.W. 12th Ave.; 503.224.0036; heartroasters.com

CENTRAL EASTSIDE > COAVA Since 2010, this Third Wave icon has offered its two daily roasts and two espresso-based drinks in five unsweetened preparations — no more, no less. The industrial-chic eastside location appeared in the Fred Armisen episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s quirky web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” 1300 S.E. Grand Ave.; 503.894.8134; coavacoffee.com

This no-frills shop is dedicated to the details that matter — think smallbatch beans (packed in hand-addressed bags and delivered by bike), pour-overs timed to exactly two minutes and filtered through 24-karat gold, and homemade treats like rum-spiked canelés. 923 S.W. Oak St.; 503.545.6444; couriercoffeeroasters.com

> WATER AVENUE

> CASE STUDY Taking a cue from the Central Library across the street, this roaster’s downtown location radiates a studious yet convivial vibe, perfect for geeking out over the rotating cast of seasonal, farm-direct beans. Exquisite house-made syrups include roasted

hazelnut, white chocolate ganache and bourbon caramel. 802 S.W. 10th Ave.; 503.477.8221; casestudycoffee.com > OLÉ LATTE The ambition of a full-on coffeehouse is packed into these two tiny carts.

They roast their own beans, pull shots on a La Marzocco, carry local teas and pastries and create a strong community with a “pay it forward” program that lets you buy a drink or pastry for a future customer in need. S.W. Fifth & Harrison; S.W. 10th & Alder; 971.221.6318; olelatte.com

When industry vets who run a nationally renowned barista training program launch a roasting company and café, you can bet their coffee will be top-notch. Taste for yourself at the original location, which offers some of the best service in town. Their beans are roasted slowly to develop the natural sugars, and some are even aged in pinot noir barrels first for added complexity. 1028 S.E. Water Ave.; 503.808.7084; wateravenuecoffee.com

Coffee is just part of the attraction at these multi-purpose destinations.

Sneakerheads and coffee fiends unite at this shoebox-sized, NBA-themed café. Sip a LeBronald Palmer (cold brew, sweet tea and lemonade) while checking out the rotating mini gallery of coveted “deadstock” shoes like pristine, retro Air Jordans. Or warm up with a mocha, made with beans from local Dapper & Wise roasters, and it might just come embellished with a cocoastenciled shoe. 408 N.W. Couch St.; 971.220.8727; deadstockcoffee.com

HAPPY CUP COFFEE ROASTERS

See See puts the “shop” in coffee shop. At this café you can pick up some new motorcycle gear along with Stumptownroasted beans and Roman Candle croissants. Don’t own a hog? No problem: Everyone’s welcome, and just gazing at the wall of custom-painted helmets is a thrill. 1642 N.E. Sandy Blvd.; 503.894.9566; seeseemotorcycles.com

Tucked inside City Hall, this café pairs caffeine with philanthropy. Beans are sustainably grown and ethically traded, and the company donates a percentage of its profits to recreational and vocational programs for adults with disabilities (and employs them, too). 221 S.W. Fourth Ave.; 503.208.2239; happycup.com

RISTRETTO ROASTERS Super seasonal, small-batch and a Portland favorite for over a decade, Ristretto’s beans are given a longer roast, making their brews a little richer than most. Grab a cup at the sleek eastside café, one of five locations around town. Its walls of windows set along a busy bike corridor make it the perfect perch for watching Portlanders doing their thing. 555 N.E. Couch St.; 503.284.6767; rrpdx.com

THE HIDDEN GORGE

Take the roads and trails less traveled for true off-the-beaten-path fun in the Columbia River Gorge. BY CHRISTOPHER VAN TILBURG

H

ead east from Portland on I-84 and, within 30 minutes, the urban surroundings give way to the spectacular all-season wonderland of the Columbia River Gorge. The massive Columbia River dominates panoramic views of towering cliffs dotted with thick firs and gushing falls. The splendid scenery rightfully draws plenty of visitors, but for every popular roadside stop, there are also crowd-free trails and experiences, from expert-guided tours to do-ityourself adventures.

For more information on the Columbia Gorge, visit hood-gorge.com.

While many visitors see the gorge from inside cars, one of the most rewarding ways to enjoy the area is on a bicycle. The famous Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail (oregonstateparks.org) has several paved, car-free bike-pedestrian paths that meander past gurgling brooks, cascading streams and high promontories with inspiring vistas. In the town of Cascade Locks, the Bridge of the Gods Trail leads cyclists about 6 miles (9.6 km) west toward John B. Yeon State Park and hidden gems like Elowah Falls. In Hood River, the Mark O. Hatfield Trail portion of the historic highway winds 5 miles (8 km) east to Mosier, passing through a pair of tunnels that were blasted out of the rocks nearly a century ago. For hikers, the 176-foot (54 m) Horsetail Falls provides a lesser-visited alternative to nearby Multnomah Falls. Set just off the historic highway, you can view right from the road, or follow Trail 438 to 88-foot (27 m) Ponytail Falls, where you can duck behind the plunge of rushing water. For a longer jaunt, walk 1 mile (1.6 km) to the bridge at Triple Falls for a shady lunch spot. You don’t have to stay on dry land to go off the trodden path: Just book a one- or two-hour scenic cruise on the Portland Spirit (355 Wa Na Pa St., Cascade Locks; 503.928.3395; portlandspirit.com), a historic sternwheeler river boat.

On longer tours, the boat descends through the Bonneville Dam Locks, offering crowd-free views of Beacon Rock and Multnomah Falls. On calm days, watch for stand-up paddleboarders and kayakers surfing the large swell created by the giant churning paddlewheel. For an adventurous water fix, try stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), the latest in the long list of Columbia Gorge watersports, with the experts at Big Winds (207 Front St., Hood River; 888.509.4210; bigwinds.com). In addition to high-quality rentals, Big Winds offers daily one-hour lessons all summer. Experienced paddlers can try the 8-mile (13 km) one-way downwind

Pinot noir and chardonnay vines dot the cooler, wetter west end of the gorge, and tempranillo and sangiovese thrive in the hotter, drier east. Aim to try them all with a van tour via Columbia Wine Tours (914 Court St., The Dalles; 541.350.9850; hoodrivertours. com), which will let you sample wines in Hood River tasting rooms or stroll among grapevines on the nearby hillsides.

There’s no better way to experience the epitome of a “backyard” wilderness than enjoying a morning stroll at Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge (19255 S.W. Pacific Hwy., Sherwood; 503.625.5944; fws.gov/tualatinriver). This sprawling convergence of wetland and forest just 14 miles (22 km) southwest of Portland is home to 200 bird species, along with black-tailed deer, coyote, river otter and other, more timid residents. Find spotting scopes, maps and interpretative displays inside the sleek visitor center, then wander the 1-mile (1.6 km) nature trail to an observation deck for a chance to see sandhill cranes, heron, bald eagles and convoys of geese. The slow currents of the Tualatin River don’t just support wildlife; they also invite novices to try out kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddleboarding. One of the most popular put-in points is at Brown’s Ferry Park (5855 S.W. Nyberg Lane, Tualatin; 503.691.3061; tualatinoregon.gov), where you’ll find Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe (aldercreek.com) and a series of short walking trails for land-bound meandering. For a more refined wilderness experience, head to Raptor Ridge Winery (18700 S.W. Hillsboro Hwy., Newberg; 503.628.8463; raptorridgewinery.com), where the sweeping vineyard views punctuated by four snowy mountaintops are almost as breathtaking as the hand-grown, single-vineyard pinot noir.

house-made sausage and cheddar cheese on a mustard- and aioli-covered brioche bun, it’s five-star trailhead food. A short drive west on U.S. 26 brings you to the Banks-Vernonia State Trail (oregonstateparks.org). Once a bustling lumber railroad, this paved pathway winds through 21 miles (34 km) of thick forests and glades and across 13 bridges that boast stunning valley views. Accessible from six points, the relatively flat trail is perfect for a long-yet-leisurely bike ride or a quick stroll among the quiet pines. Want a faster pace? Kick it up a notch at the Pumpkin Ridge Zip Tour (22616 N.W. Pumpkin Ridge Rd., North Plains; 971.371.3895; pumpkinridgeziptour.com). From heights of up to 120 feet (37 m), you’ll get a bird’s-eye view of the Coast Range foothills’ stunning beauty while whooshing between fir and cedar trees on one of seven zip lines. Wind down the afternoon at Apolloni Vineyards (14135 N.W. Timmerman Rd., Forest Grove; 503.359.3606; apolloni.com), where the Tuscan-influenced offerings include pinots and Italian varietals. A quick jaunt east takes you to Helvetia Winery (23269 N.W. Yungen Rd., Hillsboro; 503.647.7596; helvetiawinery.com), a historic property where Swiss settlers first made wine in the 19th century. Attend one of the frequent dinners or just sample the award-winning pinot.

Lofty Lodging

Spend the night at Mount Hood’s elegant Timberline Lodge (27500 E. Timberline Rd., Timberline Lodge; 503.272.3311; timberlinelodge.com), a National Historic Landmark opened in 1938. Enjoy hand-tossed pizza and a pint at the Blue Ox Bar, or zip up for a winter day carving the slopes under the Magic Mile chairlift. As of 2016, you can schuss to the newly remodeled Phlox Point Cabin for mid-mountain, on-slope dining. You’ll find delightful street cart-style tacos, a selection of Pacific Northwest ales and a cozy fire in the hearth.

Alpine Lakes

The historic Barlow Road, the Oregon Trail’s final leg, leads to Trillium Lake (59 miles [95 km] east of Portland). Visitors can cast for rainbow trout, paddle out on a canoe or simply stroll the 2-mile (3.2 km) shoreline trail to enjoy reflections of Mount Hood. (The trails are equally enticing for cross-country skiing in winter.) For a more secluded option, drop into Pine Point Campground at Timothy Lake (79 miles [127 km] southeast of Portland), nestled on the Oak Grove Fork of the Clackamas River. Paddle the expansive lake, run the 12-mile (19 km) perimeter trail or try fly fishing.

Follow the Columbia River on its journey to the Pacific through scenic landscapes, seafaring history and charming towns.

FORT CLATSOP

BY BRIAN BARKER

DAY 1

Less than 30 miles (48.3 km) northwest of downtown Portland, the port town of St. Helens (discovercolumbiacounty.com) was first charted by famous explorers Lewis and Clark on their epic journey to the Pacific in 1805. It’s been charming visitors ever since. Fronting the mighty Columbia River, the town affords astounding views of Mount St. Helens rising across the river in Washington, and reveals its link to the sea with a steady procession of ocean-going

freighters. (The town might look familiar, too: St. Helens served as a backdrop for the blockbuster Twilight trilogy.) Immerse yourself in the scene with a guided tour from Scappoose Bay Paddling Center (57420 Old Portland Rd., Warren; 877.272.3353; nextadventure. net) on placid Scappoose Bay, a wildliferich channel that feeds into the Columbia. For post-paddling eats (and more waterfront vistas), Dockside (343 S. First St., St. Helens; 503.366.0877; docksidesteakandpasta.com) serves classic

fare like steaks and pasta on a riverside patio. A short walk away, browse Olde Town District’s collection of quirky antique and vintage resale shops, then stop into the Klondike Restaurant & Bar (71 Cowlitz St., St. Helens; 503.366.2634; klondikerestaurant.com) for treats like deep dish chocolate chip cookies and a ghost tale or two — the building, founded as a hotel in 1910, is reportedly haunted by a host of former residents. Come evening, cozy up at the porch-lined Nob Hill Riverview Bed and Breakfast (285 S. Second St., St. Helens; 503.396.5555; nobhillbb.com), a Victorian-style house perched on a bluff overlooking the river.

ASTORIA-MEGLER BRIDGE

PLAY

The rusty skeleton of the 1906 shipwreck of the Peter Iredale provides one of Oregon’s most memorable photo ops. Guard vessels, historic diving suits, replica barge pilothouses and a huge map showing dozens of shipwrecks along the infamous Columbia River Bar, it’s a treasure trove of salty history. A few blocks away, the Garden of Surging Waves (1095 Duane St., Astoria; astoriachineseheritage.org), opened in 2014, highlights the previously unheralded contributions — and sacrifices — of the city’s early Chinese immigrants. The park is filled with a giant mosaic of salmon and sturgeon, massive columns carved into dragons, and a huge iron moon gate. Complete your Astoria tour by experiencing the town’s booming craft beer scene. A hub of the North Coast Craft Beer Trail (oregoncoastbeer.com), Astoria claims half a dozen (and counting) breweries. Set along the docks, the Buoy Beer Company (1 Eighth St., Astoria; 503.325.4540; buoybeer.com) is especially welcoming, with a spacious warehouse setting and a glass floor over the pier, where colonies of sea lions are frequently barking.

13 Nights on the River Summer nights mean music is in the breeze, thanks to St. Helens’s popular outdoor concert series, held on Thursday evenings from June to August. An adjoining farmers market also provides an abundance of fresh goodies. 13nightsontheriver.org Spirit of Halloweentown St. Helens’s ode to the Disney film Halloweentown (filmed here in 1998) brings an entire month of hair-raising celebrations each October, including a Halloween parade and special events like “Scarecrow Tales in the Dark,” hosted by the local theater group, and ghost-themed tours through the historic River District.

TRAVELPORTLAND.COM

DAY 2

About an hour west of St. Helens, Astoria (travelastoria.com) is considered the first permanent American settlement west of the Rocky Mountains. Visitors can relive the frontier feel while exploring Lewis and Clark National Historical Park (92343 Fort Clatsop Rd., Astoria; 503.861.2471; nps.gov), where a timber-beam structure re-creates Fort Clatsop, Lewis and Clark’s winter encampment of 1805. A booming fur trade resulted from the fort’s establishment, followed by an even larger fishing industry in the town of Astoria, which was officially founded in 1811. (And not to be outdone by St. Helens’s cinematic appeal, Astoria famously stars in the ‘80s classic The Goonies.) Atop Coxcomb Hill — at 600 feet (183 m), Astoria’s highest point — climb the 125-foot (38 m), mural-adorned Astoria Column (astoriacolumn.org) to survey the Columbia River flowing into the Pacific Ocean. For front-row ocean action, head a few miles west to Fort Stevens State Park (100 Peter Iredale Rd., Hammond; 800.551.6949; oregonstateparks.org). The former military fort hosts a network of hiking trails and a sandy beach where the rusty skeleton of the 1906 shipwreck of the Peter Iredale provides one of Oregon’s most memorable photo ops. Back in town, the Columbia River Maritime Museum (1792 Marine Dr., Astoria; 503.325.2323; crmm.org) is a must for nautical buffs. With full-size Coast

Bowpicker Fish and Chips Grab a spot in line at this dry-docked U-shaped fishing vessel, where the catch of the day comes in the form of mounds of crispy beer-battered albacore tuna served with crispy, steak-cut fries and scoops of house-made tartar sauce.

OBT EXPOSED ZOE DUMM OF THE RED DOOR PROJECT

ARTS

Opening Doors

A

red door is a symbol present in several of iconic African-American playwright August Wilson’s works, representing themes of protection, encouragement and growth — precisely the kind of topics Portlanders Kevin Jones and Lesli Mones had in mind when they founded the August Wilson Red Door Project (reddoorproject.org) in 2011 to champion racial equality and increase local access to the arts. How does this play out? Here’s one example: Following the 2014 death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and the subsequent succession of police shootings of unarmed black men across the nation, the Red Door Project presented “Hands Up,” a series of monologues commissioned by the Brooklyn-based New Black

Festival. In “Hands Up,” seven black playwrights share deeply personal stories about experiences with institutional profiling. The 2016 production quickly sold out and was complemented by the Red Door Project’s signature “talkback,” which expands on the theater term for informal Q&A sessions following plays. In this intimate setting, attendees engage in dialogue about race and share personal stories. Creative director Jones and his team also lead equity workshops to help businesses diversify their workforces. At the heart of every initiative is the Red Door Project’s mission to cultivate an inclusive sense of community, opening doors for all, regardless of color. Visit reddoorproject.org for current offerings.

Such striking images adorn Portland’s cityscape courtesy of Forest for the Trees (forestforthetreesnw.com), a project that deploys international and local artists for a week each August to bestow murals all over town. Started in 2013, the annual creative blitz draws inspiration from Tokyo. Local artist Gage Hamilton and curator

Matt Wagner co-produced an art show there and were struck by the city’s vibrant street-art scene. The pair hoped to duplicate that energy back in Portland. “So,” Wagner recalls, “we did something about it.” Their Indiegogo-launched venture has added more than 60 murals to the city, and attracted backing from the Regional Arts & Culture Council. In 2016, organizers added performances and a film festival — the latter featuring a short film from Portland director Gus Van Sant. Still, as the project grows, the mission stays rooted in its name (taken from the idiom “can’t see the forest for the trees”) — to invite people in Portland to step back from the day-to-day and look at the “forest” of beauty and creativity that surrounds them.

ome to globally known activewear companies like Nike and Columbia, hot brands like Poler and Wildfang, and breakout indie designers who’ve dominated recent seasons of Project Runway, Portland has serious style cred. Taking a cue from this fashion frenzy, the quickly expanding local jewelry scene sparkles in its own right. Leading the pack of 2016 jewelry store openings, Dea Dia (4523 N. Albina Ave.; 503.206.7705; deadiajewelry.com) joined the chic collection of shops in the Mississippi District with a light-filled space dedicated mainly to an in-house line of minimalist, geometric pieces. (Think golden triangle necklaces, deco-style rings and half-moon-shaped chokers, some with accents of shiny crushed pyrite.) Nestled among these showpieces, there’s also a selection of small-batch apothecary goods, herbal medicine and home décor. In Southeast Portland, accessory designers Allison Bartline and Heidi Lieberman teamed up to open Gem Gem (2324 S.E. Belmont St.; 503.236.2436; shopgemgem.com), a tiny accessory-dedicated space, last summer. In addition

to Bartline’s signature eccentric sterling silver wax-cast creatures and Lieberman’s beaded beauties, the pair curate a small showing of equally funky pieces, like snake hoop earrings, from other up-and-coming designers. Set just east of the Burnside Bridge, the 811 Building is known for a collection of independent, woman-owned shops ranging from Bombshell Vintage’s floaty skirts and ‘80s power dresses to Redux’s art, accessories and bags. The newest neighbors include Six/Seven (811 E. Burnside St., Suite 111; 503.341.8340; shopsixseven.com), a collaboration between beloved Portland apparel designer Liza Rietz and jewelry designer Emily Bixler, selling both Bixler’s Boet line of sculptural, crocheted necklaces and their house line of apparel, which incorporates Bixler’s crochet techniques. Another new 811 entry focuses on the past — Oko (Suite 113; 503.867.0968; okoportland.com) specializes in rare antique jewelry and art objects. Owner Lisa Mangum, a former resident of Prague and Belgrade, travels extensively, combing flea markets the world over to round out her inventory of Victorian, Mexican modernist and folk jewelry.

ess than 4 miles (6.4 km) northwest of downtown, the Audubon Society of Portland headquarters (5151 N.W. Cornell Rd.; 503.292.6855; audubonportland. org) provides a great jumping-off point for exploring Forest Park (see next page), the country’s largest urban wilderness. With three distinct sanctuaries totaling 150 acres (61 ha), this destination offers plenty of chances to break in your hiking boots, bird-watch through binoculars or space out under a mossy evergreen, just minutes away from the heart of the city. Inside the interpretive center, stock up on helpful maps and guidebooks at the nature store. Next door you can meet rescued birds of prey; once injured or mistreated, these creatures now act as educational ambassadors for the park. Once you’ve said hello to Julio the great horned

owl and Finnegan the peregrine falcon, head outside to hike any of three wooded sanctuaries — Uhtoff, Collins and Pittock Bird Sanctuary — which collectively support more than 35 bird varieties and 60 species of mammals. Along the refuge’s 4.5 miles (7 km) of interpretive trails, you can stroll by Balch Creek (the largest stream in Forest Park), scan for Pacific giant salamanders and Western painted turtles or sit on a bench that encircles a massive fir tree. For those eager to explore further, follow Forest Park’s Upper Macleay Trail 25 minutes up the hill to the historic Pittock Mansion (3229 N.W. Pittock Dr.; 503.823.3623; pittockmansion.org), or take Wildwood Trail to Washington Park (see p. 22), home to popular attractions such as the Portland Japanese Garden, Oregon Zoo and International Rose Test Garden.

NIGHTLIFE HALE PELE

Portland’s themed bars offer loads of wacky charm. BY MAYA SEAMAN

W

hether it’s through vintage video games or gothic horror, Portland’s over-the-top themed bars provide a break from the real world. Rain or shine, it’s always a tropical paradise at Hale Pele (2733 N.E. Broadway; 503.662.8454; halepele.com), where the tiki drinks range from creamy and fruity to tangy and fiery (literally). The floor-tothatch-ceiling South Seas theme even features periodic “thunderstorms” and the nose-tingling scents of nutmeg and flaming rum drinks. Walking into the TARDIS Room (1214 N. Killingsworth St.; 503.232.3344; no website), you might think you’ve stumbled into a prop room for Doctor Who. Cardboard cutouts of tenth doctor David Tennant, Dalek posters and blue phone booth lamps abound. Battered

cod from the adjoining Fish and Chips Shop provides perfect brain-food for the house-favorite Doctor Who Trivial Pursuit. For a scary good time, The Lovecraft (421 S.E. Grand Ave.; no phone; thelovecraftbar.com) spins goth, industrial, new wave and EBM amid paintings of Cthulhu (author H.P. Lovecraft’s tentacled beast), child-size coffins and voodoo shrines. Pick from cocktails, beer, an impressive tea list and vegan seitan sandwiches from local company Snackrilege. For anyone who’s dreamed of running away to join the circus, Funhouse Lounge (2432 S.E. 11th Ave.; 503.841.6734; funhouselounge.com) is your bar. Nightly events include burlesque shows, stand-up comedy and live game shows. Inside the adjoining Bar and Clown Room, grab a beer or a shot and behold the dozens of (semi-creepy) clown portraits.

Celebrate diversity with dance, storytelling, movie screenings and more during July’s PDX Latinx Pride. BY EMILLY PRADO

F

or more than a decade, community members have come together every summer to celebrate and share the rich culture of LGBTQ+ Latin Americans in the Pacific Northwest. Operating as Portland Latino Gay Pride since 2006, the weekend-long festival rebranded in 2016 as PDX Latinx Pride (July 20–23; pdxlatinxpride.org) to honor fluid and non-binary gender expressions. The festival showcases music, film, food, dance and art from members of Portland’s LGBTQ+ Latinx community. Previous festival themes have included “Lucha Libre,” “Carnaval” and 2016’s “Tus Colores” (“Your Colors”), an especially poignant metaphor for embracing the

diversity of identity. Performances range in style from Mexican mariachi to cumbia-laced DJ sets and traditional dance. A storytelling event features poetry and songs, while the noche de pelicula (movie night) screens films that investigate issues affecting LGBTQ+ and Latinx populations. In 2017, you can get the fiesta started early with prefestival happenings, including Queer Latin Dance Night at Crush Bar (1400 S.E. Morrison St.; 503.235.8150; crushbarpdx.com) on July 13 and Peliculas en el Parque (movies in the park) at Overlook Park (1599 N. Fremont St.; portlandparks.org) on July 16.

QUICKFISH POKE BAR

DINING

Bowled Over

P H OTO G R A P H B Y S T U A R T M U L L E N B E R G

O

ver the last year, Portland has fallen hook, line and sinker for the West Coast’s latest healthy eats trend: poke (pronounced “po-kay”). For the uninitiated, the traditional Hawaiian staple consists of superfresh marinated raw fish (typically ahi tuna), along with a mix of vegetables and seaweed, to be enjoyed on its own, or mounded atop a steaming bowl of rice. Here’s where to sample the waters. Set in an airy, plant-filled space, Poke Mon (1485 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd.; 503.894.9743; pokemonpdx.com) opened in 2016 as the city’s first standalone poke joint. Diners can pick from fish options like Oregon albacore tuna, octopus, classic Hawaiian ahi tuna (or even vegan tofu), and look for combos with goodies like kimchi and shiitake mushrooms. A selection of sakés adds the perfect complement.

Already well-known locally for its sustainable seafood menu, Bamboo Sushi jumped into the poke game with its QuickFish Poke Bar (1122 S.W. Stark St.; 503.444.7455; quickfishpoke bar.com), a separate, counter-service eatery attached to its downtown location. Here the restaurant’s top-quality tuna gets the bowl treatment, with options for unexpected twists like crunchy-sweet sesame brittle or an addictive cilantro dressing. For a truly local experience — and a killer bargain — head to the Pearl District’s World Foods (830 N.W. Everett St.; 503.802.0755; worldfoodsportland.com), where the seafood deli department draws regulars for seven varieties of poke bowls (including avocado, garlic shoyu and spicy tuna). For under $10, you get a generous scoop of fish, rice and seaweed salad. Take it to go, or score a seat at the store’s wood-topped bar, where there’s a seasonal selection of beers on draft.

GETTING AROUND Portland’s MAX Light Rail System (trimet.org/max) connects Portland International Airport (PDX), downtown hotels and the Oregon Convention Center, as well as popular destinations like Washington Park. HOW TO RIDE MAX A 2.5-hour pass is $2.50 for adults* and is good on all MAX trains, TriMet buses and the Portland Streetcar. The airport MAX station and ticket machines are located on the lower level, next to the south baggage claim area (turn right at the bottom of the escalator). Hours and frequency vary, but all MAX lines run about every 15 minutes most of the day, every day. The airport line runs from roughly 5 a.m. to midnight daily. You must purchase your ticket before boarding MAX. You can buy it at the station or pay your fare with the TriMet Tickets mobile app. In 2017, TriMet is rolling out a new Hop Fastpass fare card; see myhopcard.com for info. Tickets and maps are available at the TriMet office in downtown’s Pioneer Courthouse Square.

The Portland Streetcar (portland streetcar.org), connects downtown, the Pearl District and Northwest Portland, the Lloyd District and Central Eastside. Tickets good for 2.5 hours can be purchased for $2* onboard any streetcar; MAX tickets are also accepted on the streetcar and buses. Portland is served by Lyft (lyft.com) and Uber (uber.com) as well as taxi companies. At Portland International Airport, cabs are available on the lower level outside of baggage claim. The Uber and Lyft pick-up area is outside baggage claim at the far left end of the first island. The average taxi fare to downtown is approximately $40.* *Fares subject to change.
