Fodor's Review

Trains glide by many examples of 19th-century cast-iron architecture on the MAX line between the Skidmore and Yamhill stations, where the streets are closed to cars. Take a moment at the Yamhill station to glance around at these old buildings, which have intricate rooflines and facades. Nearby, on Southwest Naito Parkway at Taylor Street, is Mill Ends Park, which sits in the middle of a traffic island. This patch of whimsy, at 24 inches in diameter, has been recognized by Guinness World Records as the world's smallest official city park.
