About Near Me Now — The Official Portland App
Travel Portland’s team of professional Portland fans has selected some of our favorite restaurants, attractions, shops, bars and more to give you a local’s perspective on this dynamic, delicious city. You’ll also find historic insights, public art and fun facts, as well as today’s events at venues all over town. Downloading Near Me Now — the official Portland app — is like having a personal guide to the city right in your pocket!
Because this is Portland, we highlight all of our favorite food groups (including doughnuts and snacks), not to mention the essential beverages: coffee, beer, wine and spirits. You can always find the nearest food truck (or food cart, as Portlanders call them) — Near Me Now includes Portland’s most comprehensive roundup of the 500-plus carts within city limits. Fact cards in the app give you additional context about the area you’re exploring and deepen your understanding of Portland, past and present.
