Better than average - an interesting insight to a Portland district. You can stroll here from the CBD or take the light rail and hop on, hop off, as you please.

Perhaps affected by the fact that we went in March and the day was rainy/cloudy, but I didn't find the Pearl District to be worth the visit. If you are from a big city, this area may not meet your expectations. I expected to find a very upscale and interesting area, but thought it was a bit run down and... More

Drinks were spectacular and dinner had options for us all, including a delicious vegan roasted vegetable option. Crispy trout and the beet salad were also excellent. Adding to the Northwest feel the staff wear Filson clothing. To top it off the Ducks won making... More

I came to town for the National Ceramic Conference, and we spent the first day in the Pearl touring galleries. Many, many terrific galleries. Funky vibe in the neighborhood. So much window shopping and people watching. We had numerous choices for restaurants at lunch time, all of them undoubtedly good. Toward the outer edges, closer to the river, it gets... More

We were in the downtown area but headed up to Pearl and enjoyed some great shopping options as well as bars and restaurants. Very clean, great old buildings and of course the Powell Bookstore.

Lots to see and do here. Many eating establishments and local bars. Great to walk around and look, and watch out that you don't stop in too many places and eat. You'll be too full.
