Mississippi Avenue is a historic, artsy and exciting neighborhood on Portland’s east side. It's a "must-see" for out of town visitors and one of Portland’s culinary hot spots, full of great food and loads of personality. Our Portland tours on Mississippi Avenue are also fun for locals who haven’t had a chance to eat their way through this lovely, laid-back neighborhood.

Was just in Portland for a convention and happened upon Forktown Tours. My friends and I did the N. Mississippi tour and were thrilled with the variety of foods, great taste and accompanying beverages we experienced. Our guide was personable and passionate. Can’t wait to go back to Portland and experience the other tours offered by Forktown.
