I picked this up thinking it would be a good idea to brush up on what is good to see in Portland since we only had a few days. I was hoping for more information on the outlying areas around Portland but the lowdown on Portland was useful, especially highlighting the important "musts" as well as providing decent maps for pre-planning.

Positives - Decent maps, good ideas, perfect for a short trip.

Improvements - needed more information on day trips outside of Portland, especially since Portland is short distance from major attractions and there wasn't good discussion of distances and time needed to travel like other sections.

I would have liked this book to be more intra-regional and do more talking about the green zones around the metropolitan area but as far as detailing what's what in Portland itself, I have no criticism. Also some nice maps came along with this book, which is handy.

This is a great resource for a short trip to Portland. The small size fits easily in a pocket or purse. We tried several restaurants listed in the guide and all were excellent. I suggest Jake's seafood and Bijou Cafe for breakfast. Also check out the Mount Hood loop directions in the book--no trip to Portland will be complete without this!

Perfect guide that fits in your pocket. Information was detailed enough so that I was able to get around to all the major points of interest waterfront, pioneer square, japanese gardens, and Oregon's waterfalls without any additional resources.

It also contained a number of great recommendations of food from breakfast to dinner. Four stars and not five because the maps could have been a little more detailed.

It's portable but does not contain a map of Portland so you have no idea how the city is laid out. Other portable guidebooks furnish a small pull out map of the entire city. This guide has small single page maps specific to dining and accomodation locations. Now I need to get something else to get a useful map. It's an OK book but I would have bought another guide if I had known there was no map.
