• Portland Aerial Tram - Portland, Oregon

      Roadtrip Attraction
      The Portland Aerial Tram is a quick but scenic ride between Portland's South Waterfront and the Marquam Hill neighborhood that offers a good view of the city, and the mountains,including Mount Hood. Though built especially for easier access to Oregon Health and Science University facilities, it's open to the public, and also provides access to fine hiking trails for urban exploration.
