Kenton is a rare gem in Portland—it's got one of everything, and then some, but it still has a small-town feel. If you live here, you know. You won't run into donut-seeking tourists or chain store clothing boutiques. Instead, you'll meet hard-working, NoPo-loving neighbors who live nearby and are deeply invested in this community.

You'll learn that the butcher shop caters all the big events. You'll recognize the guy from the library when you're at the art center. You'll bump into your acupuncturist while you're grabbing a slice of pizza. You'll get to know people, way beyond the members at Pep.
