You’d be hard-pressed to find a more walkable, bikeable neighborhood than Southeast Portland’s Sunnyside. Dozens and dozens of restaurants on Belmont and Hawthorne offer everything from family-friendly Cheap Eats to date night fine dining to Happy Hours galore – many with a lovely variety of international cuisine (Thai, Vietnamese, Lebanese, French, Japanese, Cuban). Get your groceries at New Seasons and Fred Meyer, your books and media at Belmont Library and Movie Madness, and take the kids to the Quarterworld arcade, movies at the Avalon Theatre or enroll them in summer classes Pukulan Kung Fu on Hawthorne.
Victorian houses are sprinkled throughout as are loads of cared-for older homes with backyard bird habitats and front-yard chicken coops. It’s a perfect neighborhood for families and especially no-car households … and sandwiched right between Laurelhurst and Mt. Tabor parks.
Sound like the neighborhood for you? I have a current listing 3 blocks away in Laurelhurst. Have a look! (OPEN HOUSE Sunday 6/24 1:00 to 3:00 pm)
