AAA Editor Notes

Portland Underground Tours departs from Hobo's Restaurant at 120 N.W. 3rd Ave. In this maze of underground passageways, shady business deals took place, including shanghaiing, where able-bodied men were held and later sold to unscrupulous sea captains. The Shanghai Tunnels Heritage Tour includes artifacts, holding cells and a trapdoor. Participants should be able to climb one set of steps and stand for short periods on uneven surfaces. The underground is very warm in summer and comfortable in winter; guests should dress for comfort. Participants must sign a waiver before taking the nonrefundable tour. Flashlights are provided. Guided tours are available.
$13; $8 (ages 4-11). Purchasing tickets online in advance is highly recommended.
