Spent a lot of time in The Pearl on our recent trip to Portland. It's filled with cool shops (big and small, local, regional and national), great restaurants and several nice parks, and has a really good vibe. Portland is a wonderful walking city, and The Pearl is a great place to walk away a couple of days. Even if... More

Enjoy a stroll through The Pearl. Once an industrial area, now evolving to chic galleries, restaurants, nightclubs, and spendy condos. Back in the day, fresh seafood markets selling oysters (with pearls) could be found here.

I enjoyed the architecture and love that an industrial area has been revitalized. Feel most of the food is overpriced and the portions are on the small side. Many homeless people that become annoying in their panhandling, but that is part of Portland. There are homeless people everywhere.

This is an old industrial area of Portland that has been re-vitalized into shopping, dining, salons & apt living, etc. It has an eclectic vibe but has many parking challenges (parking garage shortage!) & high prices. I enjoy some of the fun urban shopping, eateries & diversity that the Pearl has to offer. The downside is there seems to be... More

Had expected this to be a cool area. It was filled with homeless people. That's ok but they were very aggressive panhandlers who made us very uncomfortable as we were with young kids. What a shame that this potentially nice area is in this state.

Without the top-tier University next to it. Very hip. Foodie paradise. Eclectic mixture of old and modern.

This area has lots of development currently. You will find many fun shops and restaurants to try. Couch Street is the main shopping area but be sure to wander all around to find many other great little shops and spots to eat. The district is really growing to the NW. The Armory Theater features wonderful live plays and, of course,... More

Every time we are in Portland we find ourselves walking through The Pearl. Usually for an art festival or some event. I love the old warehouses and docks that are now restaurants and shops. There are plenty of boutiques, bookstores (Powells City of Books!), spice shops, grassy areas and brew pubs to keep you busy for the afternoon.
