My husband is applying for two positions in the Portland area. One is in Hillsboro, the other in Milwaukie. We are used to living in a multi-cultural ethnic quirky area of SD where we walk to everything. We have tons of different restaurant options and parks. Is living in a cool neighborhood in Portland even an options to commute to either of these towns?

Milwaukie would be closer to the kind of area you describe. Going north from Milwaukie, you cross the Portland line and you have Sellwood/Moreland, Woodstock, Brooklyn, and Hawthorne. You'll probably like most of those areas.

Hillsboro is out in the suburbs, but still accessible via the MAX light-rail from Portland - see TriMet: Public Transportation for the Portland, Oregon, Metro Area

Thanks Rob,Is it a doable commute from these neighborhoods to Milwaukie? We like older neighborhoods with Craftsman type houses. No subdivisions! We walk for miles and miles. We're in our fifties with no kids, just dogs.

Those would be very easy commutes.

In that case, you could walk from Sellwood to Milwaukie pretty easily. The other neighborhoods I mentioned are a little further away.
