Susie Knows Walking Wilshire

We have a busy weekend ahead in a fun, fabulous NE Portland neighborhood: Wilshire! We’ll have 2 homes open & welcome to anyone to pop in and take a peek. Perfectly situated between Alberta Street’s restaurant row and Fremont/NE 42nd dining & fun, this pocket of town has everything a foodie could want. Plus, Wilshire Park is where I spent countless hours with my daughters when they were young. There’s a playground, a ball field and a nice path along the perimeter that’s nice for walking/running with an audiobook under the trees. Read on for home & neighborhood highlights!
