Are you ready for the lush riverfront, the bustling downtown, the artsy sensibilities and caffeinated lifestyle of Portland, Oregon? Whether you are or not, Tag has you covered. Recently a handful of Tags appeared in the magazine Discover Portland, a publication that helps tourists and locals alike make the most of their time in the City of Roses.

Perhaps you’d like to kill an hour perusing the stacks at Powell’s City of Books, then take in the artwork at the Portland Museum of Art and finally end the day with a sustainable, distinctly Northwest dinner at Higgins. Or maybe you’d like to check out the sculptures and art at the South Park Blocks, then pass through Pioneer Square on the way to the Living Room Theater for an evening movie. Simply scan the Tags found in Discover Portland and get the periodical’s monthly e-newsletter regarding the city’s shopping highlights and upcoming attractions sent directly to your mobile phone. Using the Tags, you can also get access to itineraries with more information about the myriad activities there are to see and experience in Stumptown.


You’ll even have easy access to the magazines and therefore the Tags within their pages, if you happen to be staying in a hotel in the Beaver State. Discover Portland has been placed in over 11,000 hotel rooms in Oregon for the ease and benefit of tourists who are looking for exciting local adventures in which to partake. That way, even on a distinctly Northwestern rainy day, visitors won’t be at a loss for things to keep them occupied and they can use Tags to help guide them.


Can you think of any other ways that Tags could make tourism feel less touristy? Let us know in the comments below or on Facebook and Twitter.
