Downtown Portland is sometimes overlooked for the upscale Pearl District or up-and-coming Mississippi Avenue. But with its walkable blocks, free transit and ample home decor options, there are always good reasons to head to the central city.

This month, Oregon Home shines a spotlight on downtown with a three-part series about everything you won't want to miss in your travels. From contemporary craft at The Real Mother Goose to modern design at Canoe, we think they've done a bang-up job of capturing our favorites...and even spotting one or two (AM Living, for example) that this native hasn't yet visited herself!
