Tips from locals
One of Portland's coolest and most beautiful spots in a sketchy area. The Chinese Gardens are a full block radius oasis in Chinatown and so worth the visit. They have the Tao of Tea teahouse inside and you can easily spend a couple of hours relaxing and wandering and taking photos and having tea. …
For a deep and carefully thought out expression of craftsmanship, culture, and an interactive environment where there is always an event going on to listen to or observe!
A walled in city-block garden downtown that has rotating special events, artists, and activities. Have a pot of tea and a snack in the attached teahouse.

“A staple of any Portland trip, the Japanese Gardens are an oasis of serenity in the city, a series of gardens and walkways lined with streams and a traditional Japanese tea house, all with a beautiful view of Mount Hood. The former Japanese ambassador to the US reportedly called it “the most beautiful and authentic Japanese garden in the world outside of Japan.” The garden even got a recent buildout from famed Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, currently designing the 2020 Olympic Stadium in Tokyo. Tickets to the gardens are around $17 for adults and well worth it.”

“Portland may not be the art mecca as cities like New York or Chicago are, but it does have a modestly sized museum that offers some classic and contemporary art pieces, as well as local and Native American art. It’s actually one of the oldest museums in the country and it’s worth the trip for any art lover. Tickets are $20 for adults, and free for kids under 17, making it a great place to visit for families.”
