Fremont to Williams Professional Review and Guide
"This walk starts at a lovely cemetery on top of a hill, then makes its way down the hill through various little hubs of commercial activity, most of which have sprung up fairly recently. The walk concludes with a stretch of funky Williams Avenue, a major bicycle corridor busy with new commercial development that’s been drawing some of the most talked-about buildings and businesses in town. (The nature of this development has been strongly influenced by the fact that there’s so much bicycle traffic along here; the two things have been feeding each other. If you’ve been curious about the much-hyped Portland bike culture, the Williams Avenue corridor is a good place to get an up-close look at it.) This is definitely an area in flux: if you walk it now, try walking it again in six months— we bet you’ll see big changes."
