The Pittock Mansion is a French Renaissance château in the West Hills of Portland, Oregon originally built as a private home for The Oregonian publisher Henry Pittock and his wife, Georgiana. It is a 22 room estate built of Tenino Sandstone situated on 46 acres (190,000 m2) that is now owned by the city's Bureau of Parks and Recreation and open for touring. In addition, the grounds provide panoramic views of Downtown Portland.
Portland's food cart culture. In 2011, US World News named Portland as #1 for "World's Best Street Food." There are literally hundreds of carts throughout the city (but a high concentration downtown) peddling every type of gastronomical delight you can think of.
