True Portland: The Unofficial Guide for Creative People is more than a travel guide, it’s a curated experience that captures the essence of what makes Portland different from other cities. In addition to the essential information about where to eat, sleep, shop, run, create, listen, and think, this book has distinctive features such as 48 Hours in Portland, offering ten itineraries, and seven interviews with local luminaries about what makes Portland unique, including Gert Boyle, chairwoman of Columbia Sportswear, and Gregory Gourdet, executive chef at Departure. This comprehensive guide presents both longtime residents and first‐time visitors with exceptional insights to Portland.
