The MAX light rail system runs through the heart of Portland and stops 262 times per day at the convention center. And the Portland Streetcar extends its loop from the center of downtown to the convention center, Rose Garden arena and Lloyd Center shopping mall, just one more element of ease offered to those attending the 2013 Men’s Junior Olympics.
Restaurants, Shopping and Entertainment
Outside the convention center, a wide array of restaurants, microbreweries, shops, visitor attractions and entertainment options fill downtown Portland – and each and every one of them has no sales tax! Many visitors spend their entire trip in Portland without a vehicle as MAX light rail connects Portland International Airport, downtown hotels, restaurants and the Oregon Convention Center.
