A travel guide to Portland, USofA for, well, the kind of people who read Last Hours really; less of a tourist guide, more designed for new residents who want to get the most of the city.
It’s pretty comprehensive; the city is divided into eight different areas and each area is thoroughly profiled with lists of art supply shops, comic book shops and, more traditionally for a city guide, bars, cafes and nightlife.
It’s well produced, and a nice size for your pocket, and full of some genuinely great drawings and even includes guides to skateboarding and biking in the city, as well as hiking in the local area.
It’s one of the best city guides I’ve ever read (it’s great to read a guide feeling it’s been written with you in mind), and really encourages me to want to spend time in the city. Although it would be a lie to say I’ve read it cover to cover, I can highly recommend it for anyone who is going to spend much time there.
