Around Southeast Portland
There is such a range of communities here that, taken as a whole, Southeast Portland defies definition. Starting at the waterfront by the Burnside Bridge, a collection of warehouses and the heralded ‘Produce Row’ has been renamed as Central Eastside and re-imagined as a variety of eateries, coffee shops and it’s share of retail. Central Eastside is brimming with potential - so much so that it was chosen by Smith Tea as the place to base their their operations. (Le Bistro) Montage paved the way for this area to become a late-night destination in the 90s - an eternity ago for Portland - but the trend has continued in recent years. Bunk Bar - a great place for a lunchtime sandwich - sheds it’s daywear and puts on its evening clothes in the form of a late-night music haunt featuring local bands looking to make a start.
Further down the Riverwalk brings us to OMSI - one of the nation’s leading science and technology museums - and a perfect place to spend the day with (or without) the kids. If you’re still there near the end of the day you might run into any number of paddlers practicing their Dragonboat skills for the Rose Festival. OMSI once stood alone as the last landmark defining Portland proper from the (once) outlying neighborhoods of Sellwood and Westmoreland,
Sellwood and Moreland offer up a small-town feel - and appear very much self-contained, bearing no allegiance to the changes the other nearby neighborhoods are going through. The through line is in the architecture - the same style of Victorians and Craftsman bungalows you might find in Belmont or Hawthorne are on display, albeit with lawns take up more space here than elsewhere. Westmoreland, home to Reed College, has the reputation and feel of a gated community - wide and quiet streets shaded by mature trees.
Speaking of Hawthorne (and the nearby neighborhoods of Belmont and Kerns) brings us to even more enviable destinations that are now growing up and making way for more stylish mixed-use spaces. Once typically working-class areas, the old cornershops have been replaced by recognizable names like Zupans (on Belmont) or New Seasons (on Division). Hawthorne Boulevard - home to the Bagdad theater - has benefited from the inclusion of Powell’s Bookstore to round out the selection of locally-owned retailers sharing the curb there. Its safe to say that you’ll want for nothing, no matter your tastes, without ever needing to cross Burnside or the Willamette.
If, however, you feel a need to get out of town and soak in some fresh(er) air - Powell Boulevard (aka Route 26) extends East through Gresham and Sandy and puts you at the base of Mt. Hood, affording an impressive gateway to all things outdoors - skiing and snowboarding at Mount Hood - in less than hour. In the summer months the hiking and camping options are top destinations for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts the world over.
