The South Waterfront District—Portland's newest urban neighborhood—is one of the most well-developed, located just south of the RiverPlace Marina. Lovely walking trails wind along the river, native gardens sprout between beautifully modern buildings, and eateries of all ilk have popped up throughout this new neighborhood. In early winter, you can check out the Portland Winter Light Festival, which spans the Tilikum Crossing and is held at both OMSI and Zidell Yards. Doggy parks, shopping and juice companies and more abound–in other words, everything you’d expect from a thriving Portland neighborhood. Portlanders wanting to get a feel for their changing city and visitors alike will benefit from a day trip to this burgeoning community and enjoy all it offers.
It wouldn’t be a Portland neighborhood without a thriving farmers market. Held Thursday afternoons from 2 to 7 PM, the market boasts a large number of vendors selling everything from meat and cheese to granola and ice cream to flowers and Oregon’s stellar berries. The one drawback: It’s only held from June through October, but if you miss out, you can always head to PSU Farmers Market, held on Saturdays and one of the best in town.
