Nike Town Portland

930 Southwest 6th Avenue
Portland, OR

Portland, Oregon offers a wealth of family-friendly attractions (in fact, I have so many to review, I’m behind!), but if you have a sports fan in your group, you’ll want to spend some time at Nike Town. The world headquarters of all things Nike, Portland outdoes itself with this two-story retail center in downtown (near Pioneer Square). Kids (and adults) love to see the newest shoe styles and apparel offered by Nike, displayed in their modern building with catwalks, glowing floors, and glass elevators. Various sports are represented in different rooms, and there’s a decent kids’ section upstairs.

Tip: If you’re not keen to pay the price for the top-of-the-line new products showcased at Nike Town, consider a stop at one of Nike’s outlets afterward for some serious (and more economical) shopping. We always find great deals at the Nike Outlet Store in Woodburn, OR (20 minutes south of Portland).
