The 'Portlandia: A Guide for Visitors' is a humorous Portland city guide that pokes fun at the alternative nature of the city's inhabitants. Created by TV show Portlandia's creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, 'Portlandia: A Guide for Visitors' totes several maps that highlight the city's main points of interest.

The guide, although kind of helpful, offers readers a more humorous take on Portland with sections including the dining out labels, which include such goofy flags as pretend-vampire menu and free wifi with purchase of router. The cheeky city guide can be purchased at Amazon and is ensured to be “printed on 130% recycled paper in a peanut-free, smoke-free plant by local workers in a friendly and fair environment, free of sudden noises and unnatural light,” according to the site.
