We loved Nob Hill. Lots of small shops and boutiques for any taste. The restaurants were plentiful and the food delicious.

Always fun to walk these streets: lots to see in casual fashion, imports and unusual --often novel-- shops,People watching is great and good restaurants make this area a must see in Pdx!
