This Concert Hall in Downtown Portland has great concerts. We try to visit often. The Oregon Symphony performs the soundtracks of movies--while the movie is playing! They also have many marvelous performances throughout the year.
Beautiful and old concert hall that hosts everything from live symphonies to modern artists.
Catch a great show in this charming hall, if you're lucky or plan ahead. Features the classic blinking "portland" sign downtown.
“Many plays, concerts, ballets, and guest appearances take place here. Check their schedules. ”
“Portland may not be the art mecca as cities like New York or Chicago are, but it does have a modestly sized museum that offers some classic and contemporary art pieces, as well as local and Native American art. It’s actually one of the oldest museums in the country and it’s worth the trip for any art lover. Tickets are $20 for adults, and free for kids under 17, making it a great place to visit for families.”
“A staple of any Portland trip, the Japanese Gardens are an oasis of serenity in the city, a series of gardens and walkways lined with streams and a traditional Japanese tea house, all with a beautiful view of Mount Hood. The former Japanese ambassador to the US reportedly called it “the most beautiful and authentic Japanese garden in the world outside of Japan.” The garden even got a recent buildout from famed Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, currently designing the 2020 Olympic Stadium in Tokyo. Tickets to the gardens are around $17 for adults and well worth it.”
“Great animals and music shows in summer. Christmas lights and train rides in December.”
