Recent Northwest Portland vacation rental reviews

This is the third time we have stayed at Q21. The units have always been excellent and come with everything we need. It is great having the grocery store across the street.
Craig B. | Oct 2021
Charming house! Great place to stay. It was clean and comfortable. We were in Portland for a conference, and there were plenty of restaurants within walking distance and enjoyed the short walk to downtown.
Karly S. | Oct 2021
I was in town for work and this spot fit the bill. Very large with lots of privacy. It was exceptionally clean and tidy. I also enjoyed that we were in walking distance to great food spots!

Geography of Northwest Portland

Unlike the northern and northeastern parts of the city, Northwest Portland doesn't share a border with the Washington city of Vancouver. Instead, it's tucked away to the west of the Willamette River, firmly in the Beaver State. This puts it close to the smaller nearby city of Beaverton, as well as a host of charming small towns lining the river to the north. If you're approaching Portland from the stunning northern Oregon Coast, hopping into the Northwest district is nice and painless - you don't even need to navigate any bridge traffic!

Things to Do in Northwest Portland

Unlike the rest of Portland, most of the land on the northwest side isn't residential. Instead, this district features some of the best outdoor areas to explore within city limits. Most of this lies in Forest Park, a sprawling expanse of woodland riddled with trails for hiking and biking. Visitors can go birdwatching under the shade of the trees, or test themselves with sections of the 30-mile trail that extends all the way to Sauvie Island.

For more developed (but no less serene) outdoor exploration, head south to the Japanese Gardens and take in the immaculate traditional landscaping and calming sounds of running water. If you're traveling with kids, the Oregon Zoo is just to the south, offering an amazing selection of animals to see, including rare endangered species like elephants, lions, and condors!

If you're in the mood for some food or a shopping spree, head to NW 23rd Street. Here, you'll find dozens of designer shops and novelty restaurants, all in a pedestrian-friendly atmosphere. Taste the best donut of your life at Blue Star Donuts, then browse the boutiques for some cute apparel or a gift for a family member back home. Grab some food and happy hour drinks at environmentally-friendly Bamboo Sushi, then finish it off with specialty ice cream from Salt & Straw - that is, if the line isn't too long.

Sightseeing Near Northwest Portland

One of the closest places to Northwest for sightseeing is the Pearl District, which just borders the Willamette River. Dozens of shops and restaurants await you, including some of Portland's most famous. Delectable Peruvian food awaits you at Andina, while 10 Barrel Brewing and Deschutes Brewery offer the kind of microbrews that put Oregon on the map.

Just to the south of the Pearl is Portland's downtown, which features many of the city's must-see attractions. Browsing the seemingly endless shelves at Powell's City of Books, crowd-watching at Pioneer Courthouse Square, and admiring the cultural exhibits of the Portland Art Museum all await you!
