Hawthorne Business District
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

The Hawthorne Blvd. Business District is both hip and conventional. Few neighborhoods can accommodate such contradictions but that is the reason for its success. It is a neighborhood first and destination second–a destination where vintage is right next door to shops featuring local emerging designers. Dine on fine food, where the owner will track you down at a nearby boutique to let you know your table is ready, or just stop for a quick latte at a local cafe. This is a shopping district distincly known for its welcoming atmosphere.
