There are lots of art galleries and fun restaurants. There are also lots of homeless. We had to go around many encampments. They camp on the sidewalks. We didn't want to walk thru their home. I did not feel unsafe though.

Walked up to the Pearl District for their Arts and Crafts Festival which had lots of local artisans, several food trucks and some live music. Interesting area (of course what part of Portland isn't interesting?!)
