Meet the Author

Karl Samson lives in Oregon, where he spends his time juggling his obsessions with traveling, gardening, outdoor sports, and wine. Each winter, to dry out his webbed feet, he flees the soggy Northwest to update the Frommer’s Arizona guide. However, he always looks forward to his return to the land of good espresso. Karl is also the author of Frommer’s Oregon, as well as Frommer’s Washington State and Frommer’s Seattle.

    Good for a quick visit to Portland

    I used this for a quick visit to Portland, when I visited for a conference and had very limited opportunity to explore beyond the city limits. It paid for itself with the information that the zoo had reduced price days once a month and a discount for riding the MAX. I didn't have a car, so was riding the Max already, and happened to hit the right day. The maps were handy, and the information helped me find places to visit between classes and restaurants on the train route. Not at all comprehensive, but more than enough for my needs.
