Portland travel tips

1) Dance on the spring-loaded floor at McMenamins Crystal Ballroom in Portland

Located at 1332 W Burnside Street in Portland, McMenamins Crystal Ballroom will make you dance even if you don't want to. Which way? The dancing area has a spring-loaded floor, so if most people dance or jump at the same time, the floor will bounce, and everyone will move. It's such a great experience!

2) Find out the secret of the Jetliner in the Woods in Portland

Make sure to see a retired Boeing 727 buried deep within 4 hectares of woods just outside Portland. It has been transformed into an unearthly living space. Nobody knows the reason why the plane is located here, but the spectacle is interesting. Do you have any ideas?

3) Get an insight into life on a submarine at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry in Portland

Visit the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry at 1945 SE Water Avenue in Portland to see interesting exhibits. Your visit will not be completed without entering the submarine. You will feel crew life, plus you will get to look through the periscope and even touch a torpedo!
