I recently had an overnight business trip to Portland and had an afternoon to burn, since I was already in the Pearl District I decided to hang out for a few hours. I found several brew pubs, lots of shops and restaurants to visit and eat. It wasn't crowded on a Tuesday afternoon and perfect walking distance from here to... More

Thinking of where to stay in Portland? The Pearl District - or anywhere rather close - will treat you right. Recently stayed in Pearl with a friend. With only 12 hours to play, we were within walking distance of good eats and better drinks. The brewery block treated us to numerous craft beer options and lots of public transportation around...

The Pearl is full of great eats and fascinating shops. If you're in Portland this is a district you must experience. Even if it's just to sit outside and people watch, it's a fun place to hang out.

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
