Despite the sleepy feel, Hillsdale is located very close to downtown Portland. The fabulous, year-round Hillsdale Farmers Market is a popular destination.

SW Portland is largely suburban in feel, but Multnomah Village offers a more urban vibe. Restaurants, bars, and shops create a lively environment for locals. The village is at the intersection of Capitol and Multnomah Blvd, a pretty busy road, but it is still pedestrian friendly for the stretch of a few blocks.
Like most Southwest neighborhoods, this is a charming area with a mix of residential homes and businesses with a strong sense of local community. Tall evergreens, curvy streets, and views create a more suburban feel, despite the close proximity to downtown Portland.
