A nice way to see parts of Portland is to board a vintage trolley, a service running from the first Sunday of March until the last Sunday before Christmas. The old-style trolleys will take passengers to all the MAX stations on avenues 5 and 6 between Union Station and Portland State University, and each roundtrip takes about 30 minutes.

The Vintage Trolleys are working replicas of the historic Council Crest streetcars which functioned in Portland from 1904 to 1950. The interiors of the trolleys are pure vintage, but they might be a bit faster than their counterparts from the first half of the 20th century.

Address:
The tour starts at NW 5th & Glisan

Price:
Free, but donations are appreciated

Opening Hours:
Tours run from 10:33 a.m. to 5:44 p.m., Sundays only
