Things to Do in This Hip Neighborhood

To experience a truly Portland feel, travelers must experience Belmont. It’s both a bustling district full of locally owned coffee shops, markets, and distinctive shops and restaurants, but also a large and beautiful residential area featuring some of the city’s oldest, most colorful and architecturally stunning homes. This diverse neighborhood has a completely different feel from other areas on Portland. There’s more of a bohemian vibe and finds many visitors hanging around outside when the weather is nice. The neighborhood is very dog-friendly and most eateries have outdoor seating for just this reason. Laurelhurst Park includes an off-leash area for pups and is a great place to spend an afternoon. The park has walking trails, a duck pond and picnic areas. In the summer, free Shakespeare in the Park performances take place here.
