4.0
#1 of 7 in Neighborhoods in Oregon
Pearl District features art galleries, restaurants, boutiques, and upscale residences in former industrial buildings. In this district just north of downtown, you can see many of Portland's iconic spots, such as Powell's City of Books. Free outdoor concerts and festivals often fill the parks. Ecotrust offers live shows and workshops daily, which are very affordable, if not free. Consider riding the Portland streetcar to get here from the downtown area.

Where to stay in Portland

For easy foot access to Portland's best shopping, dining, and entertainment, stay in or around the downtown area, connected to the rest of the city by light rail. This compact and busy part of Portland contains the highest concentration of hotel rooms in the city, allowing you to explore options ranging from boutique properties to big chains. Thanks to Portland's convenient transportation system, you can also choose a less expensive motel or bed and breakfast in one of the outlying neighborhoods, and still be within minutes of most major tourist attractions.
