Centrally located. Surprisingly quiet neighborhood for there being a cluster of businesses in the area. This neighborhood is also home of the Sunnyside Elementary school that has an awesome garden. The street corners are painted and neighbors are friendly. This is crunchy mama and hipster friendly territory.

Alto lounge is a great bar. I has one of the finest Happy Hours in Portland, OR. from 3-7 there are 3 drinks that are 2 dollars each, yes 2 dollars; also during this happy hour you can get one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches accompanied by of the most satisfying tomato soup for also ONLY 2 $. Always have great music and the interior decor is very relaxed. Great outdoor area for those summer days, and a great indoor layout for the not so sunny days.
Portland has an extremely dense amount of nature and hiking paths and areas. Also only 20-30 min east via i84 is the Columbia gorge which has countless hiking opportunities and waterfalls.
