This area of Portland is close to shopping, dining, galleries, and coffee shops. It's close to the popular VooDoo Donuts and Powells Bookstore. There are some nice parks and beautiful things to look at. It's our modern area of town with condo living and lots of foot traffic. Parking and driving can be tight.

According to the 2014-2015 Official Visitor Guide Travel Oregon, "The city of Portland is compact and walkable, with distinctive neighborhoods and great views of nearby Mt. Hood." More realistic is that it is a big city with lots of cars, pedestrians, tall buildings, and a lot of construction going on. We went early in the day, most of the restaurants... More

Who can NOT enjoy the Pearl?? It is a wonderfully interesting, safe, truly walkable neighborhood. This is, indeed, truly Portland. Shops, restaurants, galleries, amazing people-watching, and breweries are accessible by streetcar or completely on foot. Not to be missed.

The Pearl is fabulous - walkable and SAFE. It is full of places to eat, shop and things to do. Art Galleries, people watching, streetcars. It's a great place - I envy those who live here!

The Pearl District was a great part of town to walk around in. Not too touristy with fun and interesting shops and restaurants. Worth the hike north from your hotel!

We rented an apartment here for several weeks. You can leave the car in the garage as everything is walking distance or if you want a short streetcar ride. The area is full of great restaurants, breweries, art galleries, specialty shops, one of the worlds greatest bookstores, theaters, bars and parks. There are events all summer as well. It is... More

We did a self walking tour up and down every street of the district. A lot of old buildings and interesting architecture, both old and new. Very colorful people. If you are into people watching well work the experience. More breweries, bakeries, and restaurants than you can possible visit in a short time.

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).
