Milwaukie is a suburb of Portland and a city within both Clackamas County and to a small degree Multnomah County. Milwaukie is notably the birthplace of the PNW favorite Bing cherry.
Milwaukie is home to lovely parks and riverfront views, and although removed from the hustle and bustle of Portland’s metro areas, Milwaukie has its own distinct charm and has easy access to the rest of Portland. With a decidedly retro vibe to many of the retail stores and cafes, Milwaukie is different from many other areas in Portland and offers something unique to visitors and residents.
While some might think the spelling of our fair city is a little odd, as it turns out the “ie” ending was actually the original spelling for the Milwaukee of Wisconsin. Some claim that the difference in spelling was actually maintained for the benefit of the postal service, but considering Portland, Maine exists, we aren’t so sure.
Getting to Milwaukie
As a suburb of Portland, Milwaukie is somewhat removed from the city’s metro areas but easily accessible by bus lines and the MAX light rail. Milwaukie is bordered by Sellwood and Woodstock to the North and the Willamette to the West.
