  • If you're in the downtown area, this is worth a stop to see. This statue is featured in the opening credits for Portlandia! And it has a very interesting background. Stop by and read up on the signs!  more »
  • Didn't get the feel of this "attraction" at all... its right in the middle of busy street, no park nearby, to sit and enjoy the view, nothing special about the statue vision wise, its just there... lo...  more »
  • When we travel we always make it a point to not walk around new cities or town with our head down or just looking at eye level, this statue is a perfect example of why. If you didn't know where to loo...  more »

  • It was cool to see the namesake of the tv series. Local folks unaware of the series must have wondered why we needed a pic in front of it, lol.
  • Cool statue. I learned an interesting story about its history and the rights to it, held by the original sculptor, from a walking tour that passed by.
  • Portland has so much beautiful art that that can only be seen if you know where to look. She is perched 30ft up on the side of an iconic building in a skinny street, and she is just MASSIVE. Because she's not in everyone's face like the "Chicago charging bull" (which is actually only about 1/3 the size) she remains a serene beauty in the similarly reserved city of Portland.
  • Magnificent sculpture and a unique building, both with a rich and unique history. Definitely go on a tour like I did, you'll find incredible things along the way. Like did you know Portlandia sculpture isnt allowed to be photographed?
  • This needs to be near the waterfront.

Where to stay in Portland

For easy foot access to Portland's best shopping, dining, and entertainment, stay in or around the downtown area, connected to the rest of the city by light rail. This compact and busy part of Portland contains the highest concentration of hotel rooms in the city, allowing you to explore options ranging from boutique properties to big chains. Thanks to Portland's convenient transportation system, you can also choose a less expensive motel or bed and breakfast in one of the outlying neighborhoods, and still be within minutes of most major tourist attractions.
