    Hot Air Balloon Adventure

    Oregon is strange and beautiful. That makes it one of those places where you've just got to go with the flow. Let the wind carry you away on this scenic hot-air balloon ride over the state's burgeoning wine country. You'll be enthralled by the scenic Willamette Valley below and mountain vistas all around as you float languidly along. Since hot air balloons work by becoming lighter than the air around them, balloon rides are gentle and turbulence free. This makes for a serene escape that will leave you feeling inspired and rejuvenated. This opportunity is also the perfect chance to add some stunning aerial pictures to your photograph collection, flying low over the Willamette River and many vineyards that populate the fertile lands on either side. If you're looking for an genuinely thrilling experience, this is one adventure that isn't over inflated!

    Haunted Pub Tour

    The Old Town Historic District in downtown Portland is filled with beautiful old buildings and cobblestone streets. Lively with drinking establishments and restaurants today, 120 years ago Old Town was home to many of Portland's less savory episodes -- some would even go so far as to say "wicked and lawless." Moreover, it makes for the perfect stage for a Haunted Pub Tour. Join in on this year-round spine-tingling walking tour and hear first-hand accounts of recent paranormal encounters. In addition to (alleged) ghosts, your tour guide will regale you with stories from Portland's early days when Old Town was home to drug trades, gambling, and prostitution. Learn about the notorious "crimps," whose rampant kidnapping tactics earned Portland the dubious distinction of being known as the most dangerous port city of the western hemisphere in the 1890s.

    Haunted Pub Tour

    Ghosts and gangsters? Nothing gets in the way of the quest for frothy libations during this Haunted Pub Tour! You'll be exploring Portland's Old Town District, a historic neighborhood awash with 1800s architecture and lined with cobblestone streets. As you walk, your guide will scare you silly with stories of Old Town's shadowed past, when it was considered the most dangerous port city in the United States. Come and hear stories of gangsters, prostitution, gambling, and opium dens, painting a stark contrast to this now charming district. All told, you'll walk for less than a mile over the course of 2.4 hours of thrills and chills. Highlighting the tour is a stop at the old Merchant Hotel, widely considered Portland's most haunted locale, and featured on Travel Channel's "Ghost Adventures." You'll also pay homage to two reportedly haunted pubs, said to be home to the ghosts of a drug dealer, a prostitute, and a fireman (which sounds like the opening to a really good bar joke, but is really no laughing matter). There, you'll have time to soak in the atmosphere while tipping back seven included beer samples for liquid courage. Still, you might want to bring your binky for this one. Beer afraid. Beer very afraid.
