Portland Attractions/Night Life
There is much to see and do around Portland to say the least. Here are some other great attraction we can recommend in this kind and wonderful city.
22 SW 3rd Ave, Portland, OR 97204
A Portland tradition of tasty pastry art.
115 NW 5th Ave, Portland, OR 97209
Arguably the first ‘retro barcade’ and still one of the greatest, Ground Kontrol is a neon spectacle of fun.
1332 W Burnside St, Portland, OR 97209
As styley as it gets, a colorful and vibrant club in the heart of downtown Portland.
Powell’s City of Books
1005 W Burnside St, Portland, OR 97209
One of the best and most renown bookstores out there, Powell’s City of Books in downtown Portland is worth checking out indeed. All four stories of it!
Glowing Greens Indoor Pirate Themed Mini-Golf
509 SW Taylor St, Portland, OR 97204
Nothing says Portland like glowing indoor pirate themed mini-golf. Another gem of downtown Portland, check out this black-light/neon experience if you dare. Yargggg better than the last four Pirates movies combined!
Tom McCall Waterfront Park
NW Glisan St, Portland, OR 97209
This historic park follows the west side of the Willamette river in downtown Portland. 20 years ago this was the site of the World Footbag Championships finals for net and two blocks up, freestyle. It’s a beautiful walk and/or bike ride, not to mention an excellent place to kick!
701 SW 6th Ave, Portland, OR 97205
Very close to the center point of footbag, Pioneer Square is drenched in footbag history. From the many generations of kickers to the US Open Footbag Championships, this location is truly a landmark in our sport. Even today you might see a kicking circle or two, the record we’ve witnessed on a normal day was six!
1945 SE Water Ave, Portland, OR 97214
The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry on Willamette River’s SE side in central Portland truly is one of a kind. A wonderful and expanding place to visit if you get a chance, it’s easily biked to by riverfront path and will spark your imagination if not, your heart. Awwwww.
3229 NW Pittock Dr, Portland, OR 97210
Up the hill and overlooking the city stands the everlasting Pittock Mansion, another icon of the Portland area. The mansion was originally built in 1909 as a private home for London-born Oregonian publisher Henry Pittock and his wife, Georgiana. That’s from Wikipedia, and before I get slapped for plagiarism I’ll just say it’s a gorgeous and historical location with a view to die for. Also another extremely photographic location for footbag!
Pier Park Disc Golf
10325 N Lombard St, Portland, OR 97203
Up in the St. John’s area north of Portland lies Pier Park. This park in particular is a haven for disc golf players, known for it’s wooded and sometimes treacherous course. If you’re looking for a guide we have plenty of footbag veterans that can show you the way, feel free to ask! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
