Video Librarian Magazine
November-December 2006

3 1/2 stars(out of 4)
"...watching this overview of Portland-area parks, zoos, libraries, train rides, museums, children's theatre, and splashing fountains made me want to pack up the kids and travel 2,000 miles to visit. ...

Family Friendly Portland

"Recently, I had the opportunity to have a few mama pals review the DVD. Overall, they loved it.

For those of us who have lived here forever, it was a nice reminder of why we live here and what we love about this area..."
