A great tour, I couldn't have picked a better intro to Portland.

I signed up for a day when noone else wanted a tour. The company offered to refund my reservation, but also gave me the option of paying a small extra fee to make a tour of one... read more

I signed up for a day when noone else wanted a tour. The company offered to refund my reservation, but also gave me the option of paying a small extra fee to make a tour of one cost effective. It was really a small bump, and I am so glad I decided to take the tour anyway. Wayne was a... More

Second only to the statue of Liberty this copper lady is worth seeing, she is beautiful and has rich heritage. Dont leave Portland without getting a selfie with her!

That pretty must sums up the emotion I got from this lovely icon. We were right under her and it seemed as though she was reaching down to lift us up. Just like all Portlanders do, they are willing to lend you a hand. Very beautiful and the size is just overwhelming. This is a lovely symbol of the city... More

Gotta keep your eyes open or you'll miss her....she's up on the second floor of the building. She's gorgeous and an absolute must see!

While in Portland we discovered this amazing statue that I knew nothing about. Turns out that many locals don't even know where it is as it is almost hidden away up high and hard to see without looking for it. What is the most amazing part of it all is that Portlandia is the 2nd largest hammered copper statue in... More

As a first time visitor to Portland I felt it such a treat to be introduced to this treasure, being that it seems to be pretty well hidden from all but those who seek it out. I have since commented about seeing the statue to people who live here who were not sure where it was. It seems as if... More

My boyfriend and I stopped by Portlandia first thing! It's amazing! If you go inside they will direct you to a little museum upstairs its very different and free! You will also see the face mold they used for the landmark and learn a little history behind it! Take a picture or two!

I like taking photos where I mimic the statues pose. Unfortunately the statue is not quite accessible, and you can only really take pictures from the other side of the street. Worth a quick 5 minute trip to see it however.

2nd largest copper statue next to the statue of liberty. The building is cool too. I wish it was in the courtyard so you could walk around it

Yes so I admit the only reason I wanted to go to this statue while in Portland was because I love the TV show by the same name... but despite that she is really cool! We almost missed her because we were looking on street level but then I saw people across the street taking pictures of something above us... More
