Delve deeper into Portland with the latest guide in the GrassRoutes series. Reflecting the new interest in sustainable living, localtarian experiences, and indie/alternative locations, GrassRoutes Portland features authentic reviews by people who practice what they preach. Taste a Vietnamese-French sandwich, or meet some locals by helping weed gardens in a public P-patch. Have a splurge dinner made by a chef who grows her own greens, and then stay up late at a poetry reading. The guide points travelers and locals alike to an urban eco-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 encourage visitors and residents to take the bus, volunteer, and find inspiration.
