“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
Northwest is known to locals for fantastic food and spectacular shopping. Tucked above Downtown, Nob Hill and the Alphabet District offer sophisticated boutiques with high quality goods ranging in fashion, chocolates and luxury bath products. Sidewalks are crowded with dog bowls and sidewalk sales. Good food abounds at fabulous restaurants nearby. Residential streets surround the main strip with large Old Portland Style houses and grand old apartment buildings closely packed together on tree lined streets. Parking can be challenging, but this area is easily accessible by the Portland Streetcar. Day or night, this area is safe for walking and enjoying an evening out.
