weather make walking around a breeze.
(Albeit, sometimes a rainy breeze.) For those
looking to have a little more space and maybe
a yard, Southeast Portland offers plenty of
charming options in neighborhoods that feel
residential and quiet, but connect to main
arteries of city shopping and dining.
Then again, if you prefer to stay out of the
city, our surrounding suburbs are accessible
and ranked as some of the best places to live
in the country.
It can be hard to wrap your head around
the diversity of Greater Portland’s neighborhoods without seeing them for yourself.
Start your research as soon as possible. Talk
to people who live here. And of course,
consult with your real estate agent, who
likely knows the city inside and out.
Ranging from cozy, country properties with
big yards and quiet streets, to high-rise apart-
ments surrounded by high-end shopping
and dining, you really can find whatever it
is you’re looking for within and nearby this
exciting city. Once you live here and continue
to explore the variety of neighborhoods,
you’ll continue to discover even more.
