Day 5: A Cheap Walking Tour of Portland

Day 5: A Cheap Walking Tour of Portland

After eating what seemed like pounds of gooey, melted cheese, we went on a walk downtown to work off some of the fatty goodness we had just consumed. One of my “must-see” places was the Wieden + Kennedy headquarters, because I’m a dork like that. For those of you who aren’t aware, Wieden + Kennedy is an independently owned global ad agency based in Portland, Oregon. One of their founders, Dan Wieden, wrote the “Just Do It” line for Nike. More recently they’re responsible for all of those Old Spice ads with Isaiah Mustafa (I’m on a horse for those of you living under a rock). A guy standing out front of the agency told me that they were shooting a tv show all day, so I could at least peek my head in and see what the lobby looked like.

Then we walked over some bridges, and I took about 8347 pictures of the city. One of my favorite, cheapest ways to explore any city is by foot. You’l discover so many new places, and every step provides a new perspective for taking photos.

Finally, for the most beautiful view of the trip, we drove up to Joseph Wood Hill Park at Rocky Butte. The view of the city was gorgeous, but the views of Mount Hood and Mount St. Helens were absolutely breathtaking.
