Fodor's Review

On a clear day, the short ride on the aerial tram is worth the ticket for a view that includes downtown and the riverfront, Mt. Hood, and Mt. St. Helens. Operated by the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), the tram was designed to ferry commuters between the South Waterfront neighborhood and OHSU's main campus on Marquam Hill. Don't rush to get back on the tram; walk to the balcony area of the Health & Science University and you will find a beautiful view of the city below. The tram departs every six minutes and can be more crowded during the morning and evening commute hours. The recently developed neighborhood at the base, South Waterfront, offers a park and a few restaurants, including the excellent Lovejoy Bakers.
