We will be visiting Portland in mid-late June and I am trying to figure out what neighborhood we should stay in. We will be coming from Bend so we are looking for a city experience. Ideally I'd like to be in a walkable area where we can visit some restaurants and brewpubs. Our only plans for now are dinner at Beast one night and I would ideally like to try Pokpok (maybe for lunch).
Was thinking of Pearl District or downtown. Any other suggestions?
I appreciate your help.
