This was a thrill to view the portland Skyline. I bet the ride at night is spectacular, but then i like all the city lights.

Its a cheep way to see the skyline I guess, but it would not be a stop I would choose for touristy things to do.

For only $4 you get a round trip ride in a gondola, kind of like being in Telluride (but without the snow.) It really does feel like an amusement park ride, although the destination has little to entertain you (it's part of a medical center.) The medical center does have a surprisingly long bridge between buildings - worth a walk-thru for a slightly different angle on the view.

Right on the Portland Streetcar line. It is a nice trip and view up and down. Certainly worth doing once.

Great views, with a short ride down the hill from the hospital. Not an "attraction" per say, but as part of a day of walking/hiking ~ it was fun.
We hiked from the zoo, through a hillside neighborhood, down the tram, into town on the trolley, had a fabulous cart lunch, then back up to the zoo on the MAX. A whole gang of people, kids & adults were with us and it was really a great day. Try it! (4T= trail.tram.trolley.train)
