Top Tips

Northeast Portland's primary dining, drinking and retail areas are relatively spread out, with several residential blocks between them. To hit more than one in an efficient and fun way, consider cycling over walking or driving. You'll ride past lovely craftsman homes, as well as parks and green spaces that make for a lovely pit stop.
