What's over the Morrison Bridge?

Just wondering if it would be worth a wander over the bridge for a few hours one afternoon. I've looked a the map, and am wondering if there is a concentrated area of walkable indie shops/cafes, etc. Would be taking a cab or public transit from the Monaco hotel.

Thanks!

PS

Anywhere we should avoid in the dark?

There is a LOT going on over there. Highly recommend it. I would plan on maybe walking east then taking a cab or bus back (if the rain holds off - which it probably won't; I'm at the beach right now and it looks like th end of the world outside.)

Try

Burnside between Grand and 12th (closest and most concentrated)

Belmont (Morrison bridge) between 33rd and 37th

Hawthorne between 30th and 50th

Division between 21st and 33rd

There is also some cool stuff very close in on the east side under the bridges

Here's a sampler

Olympic Provisions

Hair of the Dog brewery

Produce Row Cafe

Bistro Montage

Clark Lewis

Bunk Sandwiches (one location for lunch, one for dinner)

You will see some homeless folks under the bridges/overpasses on that side of town, but any of these stretches will be as safe as downtown at night - keep standard radar on.

Well, first, which way are you going? And what are you looking for. Both the east and west side of the Willamette have great places to be a part of. Tell us more!

Thanks!

We'd be going from the Monaco hotel. Just wondering if there is a close-by interesting, pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood to check out. Our interests include: local artisans, children's clothing/toys, vinyl, coffee, and local beer.
