North Portland offers residents many summertime options. The Summer on the Peninsula bonus insert in this edition offers a listing of activities to enjoy without leaving home. Many are free and open to residents of various ages.
Summer on the Peninsula can be removed and kept over the summer months.
Almost everything one can enjoy by traveling to the coast, one can also enjoy right here. There are sandy beaches to stroll, outstanding coffee houses and craft beers, interesting places to eat out, scenic nature hikes and bike routes, window shopping opportunities amongst historic storefronts, and numerous small, independent enterprises that offer unique wares and services. More activities are available in adjacent areas such as Forest Park, Hayden Island, and Sauvie Island.
The fact that the North Portland peninsula has access to nature on so many fronts makes it a unique part of our metropolitan area.
We hope the Summer on the Peninsula insert is helpful to those who live here and for visitors or those new to the area.
