Portland

Portland homes for sale are smack dab in the middle of one of America's most unique and vibrant cities. Portland has long been known for following the beat of its own drum, and you'll find this reflected in all the city has to offer – from businesses to nonprofits, historic sites, and parks.

You truly can explore Portland every day for a year and only scratch the surface. Our brokers think that's one of the most exciting parts of living in The City of Roses, but it can also be a lot to take in. So, we have a selection of just a few local "hidden gems" to get you started.

Let's take a closer look at a few of the places that make Portland what it is:

  • Multnomah Whiskey Library – 1124 Southwest Alder Street, Portland, OR 97205
    Multnomah Whiskey Library has a distinctly Portland take on the tapas craze, but the small plates aren't the stars of the show. Instead, you'll find more than 1,500 different drinks to choose from. Whiskey is only the beginning, and new spirits are joining the selection regularly.

  • Academy Theater – 7818 Southeast Stark Street, Portland, OR 97215
    Academy Theater is a "movie palace" that transports you back to the golden age of cinema in plush splendor. Showings typically include one recent popular release along with two classic comedies. The food and drink selection runs the gamut from theater mainstays to coffee, tea, and spiced apple cider.

  • Red Light Clothing Exchange – 3590 Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard, Portland, OR 97214
    Red Light Clothing Exchange is just one example of the many clothing exchanges all throughout Portland, and easily one of the most popular. Open Thursday through Monday, it is now in the process of developing a digital gallery where you can browse its inventory online for the first time.

  • World Foods Portland – 9845 Southwest Barbur Boulevard, Portland, OR 97219
    Not to be confused with the much larger chain of a similar name, World Foods Portland is a family-owned and operated specialty store that includes a grocery and deli. With two locations throughout Portland, each open from 8 a.m. to late, fresh fare is always close at hand.

  • The Green Microgym – 828 Southeast 34th Avenue, Portland, OR 97214
    The Green Microgym has a unique way of keeping its members motivated. It's "green" because of its low carbon footprint – the lights are powered by the energy produced as visitors work out. As you work out, you're doing your part to power the building (including that all-important air conditioning system.)

  • Rimsky-Korsakoffee House – 707 Southeast 12th Avenue, Portland, OR 97214
    Featured in the Atlas Obscura series of offbeat travelogues, Rimsky-Korsakoffee House (or just "Rimsky's" to its friends) has been called the best coffee in Portland. Hard to find unless you know where to look, it holds special surprises based on the composer each indoor table is named for.

  • Glowing Greens PDX – 509 Southwest Taylor Street, Portland, OR 97204
    Want to enjoy some golf, but it's too hot or cold outside? Glowing Greens PDX has you covered with a unique miniature golf experience. In these arcade-like surroundings, decked out with pirate and alien decor, you'll find some surprisingly challenging shots to land and fun prizes to win.

  • Mother Foucault's Bookshop – 523 Southeast Morrison Street, Portland, OR 97214
    Mother Foucault's Bookshop calls on you to buy local with its classic used bookstore experience. On top of the opportunity to get lost in the stacks, you can meet local authors, enjoy their readings, and even get an autograph or two. Readers in search of a community will love it.
