There are so many beautiful neighborhoods where I live in Portland, Oregon and one of my favorite things to do is pick an old favorite coffee shop or somewhere new I haven't been before and take a walk exploring the surrounding area. Yesterday I decided to visit the new Prince Coffee Shop on NE Fremont. I was excited to see Katie, the owner, as I've been of fan of her since her Barista days, and congratulate her on her accomplishment. It's always wonderful to be able to see other women become business owners and excel as leaders in the community.
Prince is located in the Beaumont neighborhood which is one of my favorites to take a walk in. At this time, it's exploding with color as there were so many beautiful blooming gardens and breathtaking trees and foliage to see.
Fremont Street is full of little shops and restaurants and taking a walk down a side street will surely delight your senses. I can't get enough of the beautiful homes and gardens you'll see at every turn. For me, it's rejuvenating to get out of my neighborhood and go somewhere new. I love being inspired by new environments and taking the time to explore always leaves me feeling refreshed and ready to get back to work.
If you decide to take a stroll in the Beaumont neighborhood of Portland, OR, be sure to check out Prince Coffee as well as the other shops and restaurants along Fremont St. I recently heard great things about Tiny Moreso so the next time I'm up that way, it will be the first place I check out. Places to go in Portland are never-ending. My running list is long, but that's the best thing about it- whenever I'm up for an adventure, I just need to look at my list and decide where I want to go. We'll see where my list takes me next!
