GrassRoutes Guide to


Delve deeper into Portland with the latest guide in the GrassRoutes series. Go ahead… taste that Vietnamese-French sandwich, or get out and help weed gardens in a public P-patch and meet some locals. Have a splurge dinner made by a chef who grows her own greens, and then stay up late at a poetry reading. Our guide points travelers to an eco-urban adventure that reveals a new look at Portland — a city chock-full of bustling, eccentric neighborhoods. The foundation of each GrassRoutes guide is the actual experiences of local writers who offer up annotated listings of places to volunteer, encourage visitors to take the bus, and highlight places in the city to find inspiration.
