Downtown Portland OR

Tripping to Downtown Portland, Oregon is fun! You should try it.

My wife and I live in Oregon City which is a bit south of Portland. Instead of taking our car downtown we chose to ride the bus. It cost a whole dollar for a senior round trip if you stay within so many hours.

The thing about taking the bus is you don't have the parking hassle nor, the driving hassle. But, there are lots of folks that don't like buses...that's OK! To each their own.

There is lots to see and do. The first pic here is the Max Train headed toward Gresham. Off to the left is the "Pioneer Courthouse" and off the the right is "The Nines Hotel" and "Macys" which are in the same building...the old Meier and Frank Department Store...an Oregon Landmark.

Neither my wife or I have been shopping in the downtown Macy's for awhile. What a treat...they have turned into a fun and first-class shopping facility. A must place to go. And, the customer service was exceptional and friendly.

The second photo here is of "Pioneer Square" which has numerous free musical events and many other super activities. It is about as empty of people as it gets in this photo.

The third and fifth photos are of the famous Pioneer Courthouse. Finally, the fourth photo is of the clock tower on top of the old "Oregon Journal Newspaper" building...which probably only the older folks of my generation know about. At night it is a phenomenal site all lite up.
