The Pearl District used to be a term that described several upscale bars, restaurants, and art galleries that moved into an otherwise uninspiring area of southwest Portland. Now it's the thriving, well-designed, beautifully gentrified home to those Portland yuppies who were sick of living in vegan co-ops on the east side. It's close to public transportation, within an easy walk of Northwest or downtown, and still hosts the fun and interesting (if less quirky than Alberta's) First Thursday Artwalk. This is also (unsurprisingly, I suppose) a great place to window shop for high-end furniture and homewares.

You will either love or hate this part of Portland. The Pearl District has undergone quite a make over the last 20 years and is now a hipster, cool, trendy part of the city. Plenty of high dollar restaurants and bars dot the neighborhood and has priced out many locals.

Last five hours in Portland after a busy work weekend. Had to revisit Pearl district and I really love the area. Filled with cafés, shops, brick and cobblestone. So much charm to stroll through and the Portland wet cold somehow makes it all the more charming.

The Pearl District is the swanky district of Portland. It used to be a seedy, but gentrification has brought it new restaurants, new stores, and a new bar scene. It's a little fancy for my taste, and everything is a bit more expensive. However, if you want to see less hippies and hipsters, and see more yuppies in Portland, then this is the place to be.Recommended for:Nightlife Lovers

Coffee shops, delicatessens, book stores, galleries and a wonderfully vibrant area to walk around in downtown Portland. Old warehouses refurbished into trendy lofts and businesses. Best part of visiting Portland!
