Best in the West – Portland’s Mt. Tabor Neighborhood

June 10th, 2009

Men’s Journal named Mount Tabor as one of the best neighborhoods in the west. For those that live in Portland, we know that Mount Tabor is not only the name of this close-in neighborhood of Southeast Portland, but also the name of a volcano and the city park on the volcano. Don’t worry about eruptions though; the Mount Tabor volcano is long extinct.

Men’s Journal gave a perfect summary to this great neighborhood:

Mount Tabor is a low-key neighborhood with acres of trails at the foot of a 600-foot volcanic peak. Right next door is Hawthorne, a funky district with trendy shops, good eats, and lively nightlife. Our advice: Call Mount Tabor home and consider Hawthorne the fun uncle.
