Portland’s most unique and hip stores flock to this bicycle and pedestrian friendly neighborhood, where you can really let your creativity out and get into the local Portland color. Plus, with spectacular homes nearby the main shopping avenues and bordering the reservoir and parks, you’ll see it’s no wonder that Sunnyside and Hawthorne homes are some of Southeast Portland’s most coveted addresses.
Having Fun in Sunnyside and Hawthorne Neighborhoods
The neighborhoods border each other and are very similar in vibe and home styles. Just over the Hawthorne and Morrison Bridges from downtown Portland, you’ll be able to drive, bus, or bicycle your way through the main streets, lined with restaurants and cool and artsy shops. Portland’s hip answer to fast food, the delicious Food Carts, also have a presence on the main streets of these neighborhoods, including some that have reputations nearly equal to that of sit-down restaurants! You’ll run into hip salons, friendly neighborhood bicycle shops, vintage and consignment clothing stores, pubs with microbrew and local music shows, and locally minded, diet-conscious restaurants. Catch a movie at the legendary Bagdad Theater on Hawthorne Street, where you can drink McMenamin’s local beer and eat real food from the adjacent restaurant while enjoying a couch-style seat with your friends. Or watch a live show at the Hawthorne Theater, which attracts up-to-the-minute local, regional, and national acts. On Belmont Street, the Avalon Theater has movies, but the incredible video arcade is the real entertainment, and not just for the kids!
