“She flies with her own wings,” is the Oregon state motto and sums up Portland perfectly. No city has a greater reputation for being “weird” than Oregon’s biggest city, which is just another way of saying that people feel free to express themselves here. The city serves as the perfect backdrop for Secret Portland, Oregon: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure. The stories and places detailed within rarely get mentioned in most travel books or advertised—but they should grab your interest immediately. Few Portlanders even know all of their city’s wonders, as the area is so rich in interesting stories and places.

This book will guide you to some of Portland’s lesser known treasures. Learn of gwomes and zoobombers. Crimpers and Setziol Doors. Horse rings and Zymoglyphs. Mermaids and Monkey Puzzle Trees. Hear the story of a downed alien craft, the world’s oldest drag queen, and where to eat garlic knots next to a ghost. Unlock the mystery behind She Who Watches and the secret to a Five Volcano Day. Portland artist Jeff Brawn shares what he’s learned of his city by leaving the usual paths and climbing a few hidden staircases. With this offbeat guide, find the authentic and uncompromising uniqueness that defines Portland.
