Nob Hill

Holiday Travel Guide
Nob Hill

Discover the many charms of a late 19th-century neighborhood near downtown Portland that features quiet tree-shaded streets and fashionable and high-end shops.

Nob Hill is a trendy area of boutiques, galleries, restaurants, cafés and narrow streets lined with early Victorian houses. Explore this affluent neighborhood’s sights, including shopping streets, attractive green spaces, wildlife and a museum of oddities.

Visit Nob Hill to go on a shopping expedition along Northwest 21st and Northwest 23rd, nicknamed trendy-first and trendy-third streets for their fashionable clothing boutiques. There are chain stores and shops selling artisanal goods, antiques, women’s clothes, home décor and more.

Inside the Freakybuttrue Peculiarium, browse the collection of strange artifacts, such as the nightmare dollhouse, an alien autopsy and a vampire killing kit. If the gruesome exhibits haven’t spoiled your appetite, find a restaurant or bistro for lunch or dinner. Choose from plenty of options in Nob Hill serving a variety of cuisines including Japanese, Chinese and Italian.

Escape to the wilderness without even leaving the city by exploring Forest Park, which borders Nob Hill. This 5,200-acre (2,100-hectare) urban forest encompasses approximately 80 miles (130 kilometers) of walking trails and forest roads, including the 30-mile (50-kilometer) Wildwood Trail. Among the wildlife you may see here are owls, woodpeckers, weasels, bobcats, porcupines and elks.

One of the most well-trodden routes is the 3-mile (4.8-kilometer) trek from Lower Macleay Park to the Pittock Mansion, a stunning early 20th-century home with views of mountains, forests and the downtown area. The home belonged to the English-born American pioneer and newspaper editor Henry Pittock and his family. Go on a self-guided or guided tour of the palatial property, which includes the library, music room, bedrooms and a Turkish smoking room. Visits also include the Gate Lodge, which was first occupied in 1914 by the Pittocks' chauffeur.

Complete your day in Nob Hill with a night at the movies. Cinema 21 is a 1920s-era cinema showing American, independent, documentary, foreign language and classic movies.

Nob Hill is well connected by public transportation including the 4.8-mile (7.7-kilometer) loop of the Portland Streetcar system. This links the neighborhood to the downtown cultural district, the Pearl District and the South Waterfront area.
