Living In Portland, OR

Getting to Know Portland

Portland, Oregon is one of the jewels of the Pacific Northwest. Located on the Willamette River, near its junction with the Columbia, the city represents forward-thinking progressivism at its finest. Long known for its environmentally friendly stance, the city is home to a number of wonderfully intricate parks and gardens. Most apartments in Portland are located in the downtown area, giving residents ample opportunity to explore everything the city has to offer.

Portland neighborhoods

  • Pearl: Pearl used to be an industrial district, but has become the young, up-and-comers place to go. Like many neighborhoods of that type, you'll find constant events and festivals, great restaurants and breweries. 
  • Arlington Heights: It's pricey, but worth it. Arlington heights is on a hill overlooking the city, but still within walking distance of downtown. If you can afford it, it's worth it for nature lovers or just those who love a great view. 
  • Old Town Chinatown: As the name implies, this was both the original town in Portland, but newer developments have made it more like a Chinatown. This gives an eclectic mix of things like the Lan Su Chinese Garden, Saturday Market, and Voodoo Doughnuts in the same neighborhood. It's also cheaper than you'd expect, being so close to everything, so it gives you a lot of value. 
  • Nob Hill: Nob Hill is almost a cheaper version of Pearl. Its mix of old and new developments gives it a unique look and many places you can find a great deal on a place. It's rather eclectic, with a collection of all sorts of boutiques and restaurants to cater to anyone's tastes. 
  • Ladd's Addition: Looking for something quieter? Ladd's Addition, a planned neighborhood, gives you great homes away from the bustle of the city. It's not the most accessible, requiring a lot of driving to get around, but if you like a quieter lifestyle, it may be worth it. 


Avid readers will love Powell's City of Books, one of the largest independent bookstores in the world. Residents can also visit the Portland Art Museum, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry and the Lan Su Chinese Garden. Washington Park houses the Oregon Zoo and the World Forestry Center. Many Portland apartments are located near the venue of the annual Portland Rose Festival, which includes amusement park rides, boat races and parades.


The cuisine in Portland is among the best in the nation, while for the beer drinkers, there are several microbreweries that call the city home. Stumptown Coffee Roasters provides daily caffeine fixes to harried men and women as they head off to work. Serious shoppers can visit the downtown area, the Pearl District or the Lloyd District. Many apartments in Portland Oregon are also located near the informal Saturday Market, which runs through the height of summer.
