Calling Portland, OR Area Residents: Where to Stay in August

Jump to last reply

We are taking a week in August to explore the Portland area and want to rent an apartment. Which neighborhoods should we target? We ar going with the intent of possibly renting/buying a summer home and want to check out suitable neighborhoods. We'd like to be nearby public transport of some sort, not too noisy - not in a bustling area. So maybe a short ride into the city would be okay, or a quiet area of the city where we can find a market, casual restaurants.

I would appreciate about 6 neighborhods to look into. I am asking kindly as I have not read much about the area (my vision is poor), but have been to Portland once about 10 years ago and loved it, loved the Columbia R.

Alternatively, we'd also be interested in anywhere within about an hour's drive from PDX. Nature is nice, love mountains, rivers, lakes.

Many thanks
