Nob Hill / Alphabet District
One of the great things about Portland is that you can enjoy two different types of urban living right here within a few blocks of each other. If you like glass high-rises and a fast pace you can find that in the Pearl District and Downtown PDX. If you prefer tree-lined streets and vintage homes but still want to be able to walk to dinner, the grocery store and the Streetcar there's Nob Hill (also known as the Alphabet District). Tucked away between the Pearl and the West Hills is this popular neighborhood full of vintage condos, Victorian homes, duplexes and more. Even as long as we've lived in Portland we see new things just about every time we walk through this part of town.
For dog owners it's great because you might be able to find a home or townhome with a small fenced yard right in the city. And if not there's Couch Park and Wallace Park that both have off-leash dog areas (and don't forget about Cycle Dog!). All the shops and restaurants of 23rd Street are within easy reach, although most locals we know rarely stray off 21st.
