I didn't see anything special here. Warehouse-y. A bit run down. I guess it's good for the restaurants.

Trendy place, a variety of restaurants to choose from, shops and nice area to walk. We stop for a bubble tea and a delicious Perubian dinner at Andino Restaurant.

The Pearl District is awesome. All kinds of restaurants, bars, clubs, stores, arcades, and cute little shops. We love walking around here and finding new locations.

I was so looking forward to visiting, but we just couldn't figure out where all the "cute shops and restaurants" were...very disappointing. Went Powell's books, and the Made in PDX shop, and wandered around a little. It started raining, so we left.

The Pearl is a section of Portland. It sports all kinds of eateries and coffee shops. But what makes it different is the complete lack of any "chain" establishments. No Starbucks or McDonalds or Olive Garden. There are also tons of art galleries, and the ones I visited were very friendly. Be prepared to struggle to park. Portland has parking... More

Check out the world famous bookstore. Lots of fun just to walk around. Upscale condos. 5th avenue stores. Many art galleries and one night a month there is a gallery walk. If you are in Portland this is a go to place.

Ok, so you've Powell's and Union Way. You hit the shops and food carts on Alder. Now you are going more NW towards 23rd. Want outdoor clothes? Hit up Patagonia, Lizard Lounge, North Face,& Prana. Want unique jewelry? You have to go to Gilt and to Twist on NW 23rd. Boutiques are around. See moule, Margaret o'Leary,and

If you don't even want to buy you need to go to the pearl just to look around! Lots of funky stores and good places to eat some of them vegan all of them good and no chain resturants! It is hard to find a chain resturant in Portland downtown thats why Portland is so cool!

Powell's Books, of course.Then go across the street to Union Way to some local shops with Danner boots, Steven Alan,Marine Layer, Will Leather Goods. Clothes here range from woodsman to kind of high end casual- just see for yourself. Ramen is delish.Quins candy makes good take home gifts. And Little T bakery is great for a coffee and pastry refuel.... More
