Walking tours of the downtown area focusing on the best of the city's art, architecture, urban parks and fountains are available. For the more adventuresome walker, Forest Park has over 70 miles of trails.
Nightlife in Portland is excellent and varied. This includes the world class performances of the internationally-known Oregon Symphony. Performing arts in the area offer ballet, Shakespeare, Broadway musicals, modern dance and much more. See art up close at the First Thursday art gallery walks in Westside Portland or in Northeast Portland galleries during Last Thursday walks.
