Explore local oddities with odd local


Are you here to absorb authentic Portland culture?


Are you trying to live like a local while you are?

Because Portland is a Millennial playground best understood when explored like someone from here.

Rather than focus on how to make more money, Portlanders focus on how to enjoy their time.

Weird, right?


You came to see what sets Portland apart,

and what better way of finding out than living like a local yourself?

Here are the city’s favorite pastimes: picking up weed from the neighborhood dispensary, getting cozy inside a cafe lounge, eating eclectic food with a range of options, and grabbing beers from a funky looking bar.

So for starters, we'll poke around a weed dispensary, where we'll get a feel for just how legal marijuana is in the city.

Second, we'll sip tea inside a cozy residence that's been converted into a living room cafe.

Third, we'll grab meals from a food cart pod featuring Vegan, Egyptian, and Vegan-Egyptian options.

And lastly, we'll drink beers at a trippy bar that was intentionally designed to look like an acid trip.

Along the way, I'll enlighten you to the community's culture and provide custom recommendations on how to live like the locals!

Dresden told us great stories and interesting facts about Portland. I definitely loved it and would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn about local life here while sampling some local specialities.

It’s very apparent that Dresden loves and knows the city of Portland well, and he’s excited to share that knowledge with others. The tour offers a look not just at the physical structures of the city, but into the hearts and minds of the people who make Portland such a cool place.
