Early registrants have had a lot of questions about the Tuesday evening tour options. Here are some details/explanations:<br />4T Trail (Train, Trail, Tram and Trolley): This is a really unique way to get to know Portland: we will ride the light rail up to the Zoo, hike for four miles (unpaved, 500' net elevation gain), ride down to the river on the aerial tram, and then return on the streetcar (aka, "trolley"). There are several dinner options close to the streetcar route. This is a physically rigorous outing; the hike is moderate and sneakers and comfortable clothing is recommended. Free! <br />Bike Tour: Portland is renowned for its bicycle infrastructure, culture and economy. This guided tour will introduce you to how we've earned this reputation, from bike signals, bike boulevards and bike corrals. The pace will be light and the route overwhelmingly flat. A small fee covers the rental of a bike and helmet. <br />Food and beer tour: Aside from bikes, Portland is also well known for excellent food and beer. This guided tour will lead you past (and sometimes into) some of our favorite watering holes and places to eat between the university district at the south end of downtown and the trendy pearl district at the north end (a distance of less than 3 miles. We will travel on foot and on the light rail or streetcar (free) to cover this distance. If you want to experience some local flavor, this is a great way to do it! <br />Architecture Walking Tour: If you love to explore a city by staring up at the buildings then this tour is for you. Enjoy a guided walking tour of some of Portland's interesting downtown sites, including numerous parks and fountains as well as notable structures, both historic and modern. Among other things, you'll meet Portlandia, the second largest Copper Repousse statue in the US (after the Statue of Liberty)! <br />Wednesday, June 15th: UTC Administrative Managers Meeting or National Workforce Summit Planning Meeting <br />UTC Administrative Managers Meeting ‐ Room 238.
