"Waterfront park" Portland Tourist Trap Tip by mirthful

Portland Tourist Traps: 13 reviews and 10 photos

This is a great tourist trap. In the Summer there is always a festival going on here. If not there is the water fountain you can watch kids rnning in and out of. On weekends Saturday Market visitors pour out onto "hippy hill" and
watch the drummers. Everyone from Business men to Bums are out here.

The great things is it offers a great place to walk and relax after a long day at work.

Another tourist trap is the Rose Garden a beautiful haven to "stop and smell the roses"
with a great view and yes they still have plays and concerts up here that are fun to visit.

Unique Suggestions: Most the time when I go to these tourist traps I go there to relax and get things off my mind. Of course another way to help with this is stopping by a local brewerie and having a pint before or after.

Fun Alternatives: If the outdoors is not your scene then another tourist trap is the Lloyd center. sorry to say not al it is cracked up to be but if you do not like shopping you can still ice skate.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
