The Hawthorne District is a popular area of Southeast Portland. It’s known for its buzzing vibe and an electric mix of restaurants, bars, gardens, and food places along the SE Hawthorne Boulevard — the main street that runs through the neighborhood and extends into a bridge over the Willamette River. A chill lunch on a patio, a shopping spree in a cozy antique store, thrift and vintage store shopping and toy stores, or a casual walk along the boulevard — Hawthorne has something to offer to anyone.
