South Park is the cultural core, home to the Portland Art Museum, Northwest Film Center, and Saturday Farmer’s Markets.

New Old Town is infused with Chinatown, the Chinese Garden, and cast iron architecture.

The Pearl District is Portland’s artistic hub, featuring many art galleries, performing arts, and festivals.

Other must sees are the Portlandia Statue, the Skidmore Fountain, Pittock Mansion, the Chinese Gate, The Grotto, and the Oregon Zoo.
