Have you always wanted to enjoy saunas in Portland but don’t know where to start? Join us for a discussion with Lizzy Acker, The Oregonian reporter who knows the ins-and-outs of local saunas and spas!

 

“What hasn’t changed is the joy of soaking or getting in a sauna in the cold, dark months of winter, one of those pleasures that Californians will never understand. So I decided to go out and revisit the old favorites that remained open and check out two new options.” Quoted from Lizzy Acker’s article.
