About Portland

Neighborhood-oriented since its founding, Portland began as a grid of half-sized downtown blocks and grew outward into five quadrants to become the major, but manageable, city it is today. Although divided into 95 neighborhoods, many of Portland’s neighborhoods share similar cultural elements and work together to form the city’s vibrant and diverse identity. Stroll through one area in an afternoon, or pedal through several in a day. Either way, packed with eclectic shops, inviting public parks, trend-setting restaurants and eye-grabbing architecture, Portland’s distinctive neighborhoods overflow with original experiences.
