“Good for a quick look at the City from above”

Portland Aerial Tram
Ranked #37 of 464 things to do in Portland
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed May 1, 2013

The main reason for this tram is that it connects two parts of a hospital--but the ride, which is about 5 minutes in each direction, is fun---and the kids in our car seemed to really love it. Clean, cheap thrills if you're in the area and not looking for serious adventure. Swiss-made tram.

Only a short ride and only the hospital at the top but worth a trip, great views on a clear day but don't expect to see Mount Hood if its not.

This is well worth a visit...My children, wife and I loved this aerial tram in Portland. It was excellent value for money only $4 for adults return fare. Where would you get this value elsewhere?
From the top of the hospital where the cable car or aerial tram brings you, you can get spectacular views of the Willamette river, Mt Hood and Mt St Helens. If you have children they'll love it too and the ride on the tram or streetcar in Portland gets you there in style and ease. For schedules on the Portland streetcar check out:

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.
