Wake up early and get the beautiful sunrise colors! It’s a view-filled start to your day with a ride on the Portland Aerial Tram.
We’ll pick you up in central downtown Portland at Director Park, and take our favorite vista-filled drive across the city’s western ridgeline, though pocket neighborhoods that feel like secrets. At OHSU, we’ll walk with you to the Aerial Tram.
We’ll serve you craft roasted coffee and some of Portland’s best doughnuts with a view of the first morning light, then we’ll ride this feat of Italian engineering as the early sun reveals the city’s glowing colors. At the bottom, we’ll walk to a new building that is helping redefine the city’s skyline, and head up to a viewing deck that shows off Portland’s youngest (and only earthquake-proof) bridge. We’ll tell you the story of the bridge and its quixotic lights, and orient you to the city whose east-west divider lies before us.
