We ate dinner here at a very good Thai restaurant (Mee Gin Thai Soul Restaurant- see my review) and then wandered around the neighborhood. It was amid of eclectic shops selling books, vintage and new clothing, records, gifts, artwork, etc. Some of the shops were out of the ordinary and some run of the mill. If you come here to eatlweave an hour to walk and see the shops, even better walk on the side streets and take a look at the beautiful craftsman style homes and their gardens, they are lovely and some are quite whimsical in their decorations.

We walked around Hawthorne for an hour. Some interesting shops - like a lower, touristy type of merchandise - for stuff to take home. It satisfied our needs but i would not call it a destination.

Hawthorn is the kind of area that is be rife with shops and people that make Portlandia a case study of Portland neighborhoods. Aggressively “with it”. Hippy chic. An eclectic walk. A stroll down the street is part protest march.

I had the opportunity to see a different part of Portland. I decided to check out the Hawthorne District. It was a strip of shops and restaurants that were not your run of the mill. There were vintage clothing shops, gift shops, small cafes and different ethnic restaurants. I wandered in the streets behind Hawthorne and found cute neighborhoods with bungalow style homes. I stopped by Rachel’sGinger Beer and chatted with Caitlin who was super friendly and helpful telling me about the area and giving suggestions for food and entertainment . I then headed to the Mississippi area for dinner and a night of jazz.

Hothorn is it cute area with lots of places to eat cute shops in great vintage stores however trying to find a place to park here is absolutely ridiculous. It’s almost not worth the bother as it takes forever to find a place to park. I feel terribly sorry for the people that live in the area.
