Forktown Food Tours - Which Tour? (1 Reply)
Hi all, I'm trying to decide between the Mississippi, Downtown & Pearl District and Alphabet District tours. I've never been to Portland, if that matters. From what I've read they all appear very popular, but I'd love opinions on which one is the "best."
July 24, 2014|
Response from|
The "best" in terms of...? Of the three, I think Mississippi Ave. is more interesting and out of the ordinary, and might choose it for that reason alone. You'd probably love the Alphabet District neighborhood, but most of the places they take you there, while nice, are generally ho-hum. Downtown & the Pearl has an interesting variety and range of tastes, but it's more of a big city, urban tour.
