Travel Portland, the city’s destination marketing and management organization, launched a mobile app called Near Me Now to help both leisure and business travelers navigate the city like a local. Available in both the Apple App Store for iPhone and in the Google Play Store for Android, the map-based guide takes a user’s current location to identify nearby restaurants, attractions, shops, bars, and more. This is also a useful tool for planners looking to incorporate local Portland activities into an event itinerary.

Near Me Now also offers historical insights, information about public art, fun facts about the city, and current events to check out at venues around Portland. The features of the app are also available on Travel Portland’s website with no download necessary.
