Here’s a cool, pedal-powered activity for your summer house guests…
PDX Pedicabs and the Old Town/Chinatown Neighborhood Association have teamed up to produce a 45-minute audio tour that they say will take pedicab passengers, “back through the layers of Old Town history”.
This new “eco-tour program” is made possible by pedicabs that have been outfitted with an audio system that plays a presentation written by “neighborhood insiders and cultural specialists”.
A press release announcing the new program also says that the pedicab drivers will “provide tips on everything from summer events to boutique offerings to what’s on the menu at local restaurants.”
The tours leave from Portland Saturday Market (SW 1st and Ankeny) and the Chinese Garden (NW 3rd at Everett) throughout the day on Sundays or you can call 503-PEDICAB for a reservation. Tickets are $15 per person, children 12 and under free with an adult.
