Wildsam Field Guides: Portland

We rated this book:


Portland is a city that has always taken pride in its quirkiness, so finding a quirky little (6.5 x 0.3 x 4.2 inches) guidebook like this one shouldn’t be a big surprise. Every city guide has lists of restaurants and hotels and sights to see, but this book does things in a different way. For instance, rather than a long list of restaurants grouped by ethnicity or type, it has a recommended place for a wide variety of things. Sections include “Chicken & Rice,” “Corner Grocery,” “Food Cart,” and “Ramen.” The Shopping section includes things like a drum shop, where to get DIY materials, a cannabis shop while the “Action” section has everything from concert halls to dog parks. There are interviews with locals and stories about the area. Maps and listings will take you to bridges, donut shops, Thai food, wineries, bookshops, and more. A good index and plenty of blank pages for notes finish this off. This is a fun book to read through, but be sure to keep a magnifying glass at hand. This tiny book comes with tiny type and is, for those with older eyes, a bit hard to read.
