In the heart of downtown, Pioneer Courthouse Square is sometimes called Portland's Living Room. There are often events planned within the square, or you can just buy a Starbucks and people watch. Walk one block to Pioneer Place shopping mall for a variety of major retailers, or grab a bite at the food court. Explore around Pioneer Square for lots of additional shopping options, including Nordstrom department store. Catch a movie inside Pioneer Place or at nearby Fox Tower. National acts perform music, dance, and comedy at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall or Antoinette Hatfield Hall. A few blocks east of Pioneer Square, you'll find Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Enjoy a stroll along the Willamette River, or take in the food, art, crafts, and street performers at Portland Saturday Market.
