Overview

Take a ride back in time with the Willamette Shore Trolley, aboard a replica of trolleys that carried passengers to Council Crest. Along the route from Lake Oswego to Portland, you'll pass by beautiful homes and stunning views of the Willamette River while our conductors entertain you with stories of the history as you pass by. Most of the history is even true! The Willamette Shore Trolley runs during the summer between downtown Lake Oswego and Bancroft Street in Portland during the summer, as well as for special occasions and charters.

Really nice volunteers operate and sell tickets. The ticket sellers even offered to help us find local parking spots. A relaxing and scenic route with commentary. Bought roundtrip tickets and the commentary, activities, and attractions were different. Even though you are going through the same...More
