“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
Shedding its lackluster reputation as the Northwest Industrial District, the newly renamed The Pearl brims with swanky condos, boutiques, restaurants, wine bars and microbreweries. Some locals call this dog-friendly, park-filled neighborhood the "Little Doggie District," and local shop owners hand out dog treats by the handful. There are two award-winning parks worth visiting: Jamison Square for summer fun by the water, and Tanner Springs for a tranquil setting atop a natural spring. Getting around the Pearl District is easy: all the street names are in alphabetical and numerical order.
