Belmont Street runs through the center of the neighborhood and offers a variety of bars, restaurants and coffee houses.

Fun Things to Do in Portland

Portland is a fun melting pot of delicious food, tasty beverages and family-friendly activities. You'll find a wonderful collection of museums, shops and outdoor experiences to keep everyone happily busy.

Portland Attractions

Residents can get their learning on at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry or the Pittock Mansion. Learn a little more about your favorite scientific topics or dive into the local history of one Portland family. If the weather's good and you'd like a day outside, spend time at the Lan Su Chinese Garden or check out the Portland Japanese Garden. Washington Park can keep you busy for quite a while. It houses the Oregon Zoo and the International Rose Test Garden.

Portland Culture

Perhaps the most interesting cultural stop in Portland is Mill Ends Park. As the smallest park in the world, this tiny spot is literally the size of a lamp post. Created by a local columnist, it has been an official park since 1976, and speaks to the laid-back, accepting vibe of the city. If shopping is your culture, visit the downtown area. Both the Pearl District and Lloyd District offer ample stores to check out in addition to other cultural experiences. You can even go to circus school at The Circus Project if you're looking for something completely unique. Many apartments in Portland are also located near the informal Saturday Market, which runs through the height of summer.
