Located in the northeast quadrant of the city, Alberta Arts is just what the name suggests. Once home primarily to African-Americans,this diverse, arts-rich community offers eclectic bars, shops and restaurants along its main 20-block strip. The most popular event is Last Thursday, when streets fill with artists, musicians and circus performers in a scene straight out of Portlandia.
Getting Around Portland
The best way to get around Portland is by using public transportation and walking. Portland's public transit TriMet buses and light-rail trains are accessible and efficient. You can hop on the light-rail from the Portland International Airport (PDX) and get into the city for $2.50, which is much cheaper than cab fare. Day passes work on all forms of Portland public transit and begin at $5 for adults.
