The Portlandia Express: Mobile Tour for 2017 Spring Meeting (Portland)
Ranked in the top three hottest markets in Emerging Trends in Real Estate 2017, Portland is ready for its close-up. Here’s your chance to experience the totally unique realities of “Portlandia.” From the award winning craft beer to the fiercely innovative food scene and its one-of-a-kind brick and mortar retail, the rest of the nation has at last noticed the Northwest’s best long-kept secret.
Get a day’s jump on the Spring Meeting’s start and spend the day in Portland getting an immersive, top to bottom view of how the Rose City is keeping its weird, funky soul alive while it experiences incredible growth in its urban core. Walk the Pearl, learn about the Lloyd District’s uber-green retrofits, and other central city neighborhoods before boarding the Amtrak Cascades for a quintessentially Northwest voyage to Seattle.
