3 comments on “Hillsboro”

Hillsboro is a smaller town outside of Portland, Oregon and not as heavily populated. This gives Hillsboro a tighter-knit community with the advantages and conveniences of a large city, without many of the problems that stem from living in one of America’s largest cities, such as taxes and crime.

Hillsboro, Oregon, is ever growing and progressing. There are a plethora of new apartment buildings rising everyday. The farmers’ markets are the talk of the town and a great place to socialize. The local bands are always harmonious and play each Tuesday evening in the shadow of the courthouse square.

Hillsboro, Oregon, is located halfway between the Pacific coast and Mount Hood. Although it is rainy during winter, the rest of the year it is temperate and beautifully green with highlights of color. Hillsboro is a suburb of Portland with easy access to “big city” amenities, but with the charm and benefits of suburban and rural lifestyles.
