Portland Walking Tours

Resolve to walk more in 2013, Portland

December 31st, 2012

Since everyone else is making new year’s resolutions, we thought we’d join in the fun for 2013.

Our resolution – and we hope you’ll join us in this – is to walk more.

Yes, even WE need to walk more. And there are so many great benefits of walking:

  • Walking is great exercise. It improves circulation, strengthens the heart, tones the muscles, and overall makes you healthier.
  • By walking, you experience the city and your surroundings better. You can:
    • smell the delicious aromas from great bakeries,
    • taste the fresh air,
    • discover the amazing hidden gems of Portland like drinking chocolate and aged balsamic vinegar
    • hear the music played on every street corner,
    • see the city’s colors up close (like that silver-painted mime guy or the bagpipe-playing unicyclist at the waterfront).
  • And, you get to see – really see – the city. For instance, if you’re driving, you might see this:


  • But if you’re walking, you’ll see this:
