Great neighborhood for walking, dining, shopping and just hanging out. It's just minutes from downtown Portland and easily accessible by public transportation.

Great area to walk around and explore. As the rest of Portland everything seems much more relaxed than other cities.

We took the Trolley to the Pearl district for an afternoon stroll. Great little shops, galleries, restaurants and bars. Loved the mini parks and green space interspersed with high rise condos. Easy in and out with a stop at Powells (of course).

This area is hip. Beautiful new construction that mixes with the old construction in downtown make for an interesting Skyline. :) Love the water area at Jamison Square. You don't know what you are going to find here. We took the kids for a dip and caught the tail end of stilt walkers performing. It would be great to live... More

What a tremendous area. Shops, bars and restaurants all in an easy walk area. Safe. We only had a night and day in Portland but really enjoyed the Pearl district. We will be back.

Shopping, restaurants, clubbing, people watching, boutique hotels, all in a fairly compact neighborhood. Public transit is excellent so even if you are on a long layover at the airport you have time to go down to the pearl and spend some of your time. The Saturday market is superb. I have reviewed many restaurants in the neighborhood so you can... More

Yes, there are lots of interesting opinions here on the Pearl from being an overpriced place to being a hot must see destination. I have been visiting the Pearl for over 15 years now and I look forward to spending about an hour walking around several blocks to see what's next. Mandatory stops include Powell's and Whole Foods (no need... More

What is now called the Pearl District was a perfectly good warehouse district not too many years ago with jazz clubs, micro breweries and dark, moody streets. Developers changed all that and built an urban paradise for people from other urban areas who wanted to move to Portland, but still wanted their old urban settings. So, we got the Pearl... More
