Local Reviews

Some of the things that I love the most about living in my neighborhood is how many local restaurants and shops there are

Can walk to the beach. Can walk to downtown restaurants, etc. I like going all those places with friends.

It's very quiet and there's a park/lake nearby. It's still only 30 minutes from downtown which makes going to Portland easily accessible.

I like living in my neighborhood because it is a cute small beach town. It is hasn't been fully taken over by tourist so it is still slightly private. You can walk to a nice grocery store or a few restaurants. It is right off the freeway. The streets are clean and taken care of. The are dogs everywhere with parks and places to walk them. There are great restaurants of all varieties.

I love how tree-lined the streets are, even though it is a suburban area, it is a really pretty area. I also love how many different parks with dog parks and walking trails are very close. Also, it's nice how close downtown is.

Uniqueness is the hills and the parks. My favorite places to go is the beautiful little restaurants.
