Portland proper is replete with charming neighborhoods. The tiny west hills host some of the more ostentatious architecture in the city, while the historic neighborhoods of Laurelhurst and Fremont boast sprawling estates with lavish gardens. The Lloyd District’s bustling commerce is marked by retro condos and restrained townhomes, while Sellwood’s tree-lined streets spill over with young families. From the mountain view condos in the Pearl District to the craftsman homes that dot the Eastside, Portland has a house for everyone who loves rain, rivers, and recycling.
Healy Heights in southwest Portland offers some of the most breathtaking views the city has to offer. With Council Crest as the neighborhood touchstone, the parking can become difficult, but the high number of families with school-aged children make it a perfect area for young families looking for respite from the bustle of the city.
The trendy Sunnyside neighborhood includes Hawthorne Avenue, one of Portland’s most visited commercial streets. There is a lot of fun to be had in the Sunnyside neighborhood; it is a prime nightlife area but offers plenty of culture for children as well.
Overlook, on the border of North and Northeast Portland offers spectacular views, a nice variety of homes and plenty to do and see. This neighborhood is a bicyclist’s dream with nice, wide streets and one of the most scenic and low-impact bike paths on the north side.
