Hi, I'm a 59 year old female who will be in the Portland area for about 8 days mid August, flying in from Southern NM and will be staying at the Milwaulkie Inn on Mcloughlin Blvd. I'm hoping to just rely on bus/train to get to downtown Oregon and where ever else I visit. It looks like a nice little community by the river, yet easily accessible to Portland. I do a lot of walking, so do plan to walk by the river. It looks like a Safeway is close by. How far is downtown Milwaulkie from where I'm staying? Where else should I visit near in the Milwaulkie area? I'm doing the obvious tourist things in Portland, museums, etc. I sort of assuming this is a walkable area around where I'm staying, although it looks like Mcloughlin is a busy boulevard. I like thrift stores, bookstores. Good but not fancy restaurants? Any information about Milwaukie would be appreciated. Thanks.
