Portland Neighborhood Guide

We wrote the Portland Neighborhood Guide to help people who do not live here to understand how Portland is laid out! It covers all the little Neighborhoods of the Inner City, plus most of the West Suburbs, and some of the East Suburbs. Each little Neighborhood has it’s own personality and lifestyle,

North Portland Neighborhoods

North Portland has done a complete about face in the past 10 years or so. It used to be run down, full of rentals and uncared for homes- lots of crime and violence- and gangs about 20 yrs ago. Then people began rediscovering the city- buying the old neglected homes and fixing them up… slowly but surely the neighborhood began to revive. Read more…

The East side of Portland is the older part of the city- with lots of awesome historic homes  full of charm and character, tree lined streets and little neighborhood business areas with local restaurants, pubs, cafes and shops.  This is what attracts many people from all over the country to move to Portland.

West Portland Neighborhoods

West Portland includes the whole downtown area, most of the tall buildings you see in the skyline photos, Pearl District, the Alphabet District, and Forest Park. It rises quickly from the river up into Forest Park, the West Hills and the SW Hills. As you get up out of the downtown, the streets wind and climb. Read more…

West Portland Suburbs

To the SW is Tigard- stretched out along Barber Blvd-which becomes 99W. The Fanno Creek Trail runs from Tualatin through Tigard and on to Beaverton and even goes into SW Portland. Read more…

East Portland Suburbs

East Portland is very different from West Portland. It is on the east side of the Willamette River, with the Columbia River as it’s northern border, and the foothills of the Cascade Mountains is the east border, the towns along the Willamette River, including Oregon City which goes steeply up from the Willamette River. Each suburb offers it’s own unique features because of the huge difference in geography. To learn more about each area, just click on the suburb itself. We are still in the process of adding the east suburbs, although we have been working in them for over 10 years! This area does have some farmland and multi-acre plots, but much of it is hilly and rocky with lots of evergreen trees. Some has been cleared, and can be used for animals and growing things, but it’s not the same kind of land as the West Countryside, which is in the Willamette Valley.
