The 10 Best Places To Live In Oregon – Job, Retire & Family

For those who have an avid love for the great outdoors but also like to be able to mingle with city dwellers, Oregon is the place for you.
Neatly divided into distinct eastern and western regions by the Cascade Range, Oregon’s most family-friendly cities are as diverse as its landscape.
With access to breathtaking wilderness areas, sweeping deserts and long stretches of coastline, families who value outdoor recreation thrive here.
Similarly, those seeking access to arts and culture will find exceptional theater, live music, and art museums even in the smallest towns.
Although the Oregon state capital is Salem, the city of Portland is where the action is at. This city is famed for its progressive and trendsetting culture.
Because of its diverse landscapes and waterways, Oregon’s economy is largely powered by various forms of agriculture, fishing, and hydroelectric power.
Technology is another one of Oregon’s major economic forces, beginning in the 1970s with the establishment of the Silicon Forest and the expansion of Tektronix and Intel.

  1. Moving to California is ass backwards. Volcanoes, and two fault lines is begging for something catastrophic. And it's coming. Aside from it being overly expensive.

  2. Don't move to Portland unless you want to pay way too much money to live in crowded spaces where you have to constantly worry about your vehicle getting stolen or damaged.

    lol this video should be called "all the most expensive places to live in Oregon"

  3. Gosh, reading through all the comments. Seems everyone is miserable living there and blaming their own states problems on other folks visiting and politics. Geez, was looking to travel here as a RN but now I have my doubts. Is everyone living here miserable? I grew up in Alabama, so much poverty, poor education, poor housing, horrible healthcare and economy and just as red as Crimson. I don't know.. blaming everything on a political party seems counterproductive. People just aren't flourishing like they use to anywhere. Seems like its more capitalism to me. Will keep looking…

  4. Friends of mine in White City said that the COVID refunds were taxed by the state. Later the state said they would refund that money but have not. All I can think of just be carefu of the political culture in Oregon.

  5. Springfield was a major Meth den when I lived in Oregon from the 90s to 2014, I wouldn't suggest it to anyone but maybe it has gorten better in the last 7 years.

  6. Eugene … yuk!! Rain and pachouli! Not a good mix. Portland… if you like rain, riots, graffiti, garbage, boarded up businesses and the smell of urine it’s great. Bend is not small and not affordable lol. No jobs that pay enough to allow you to pay rent. Californians have moved to Bend and ruined it. I’ve lived in Bend my entire life and want to leave because liberals ruined it. Springfield is Eugene on meth. Gross place! Brookings is nice. You can’t smell Portland there. Sherwood is just Portland suburbs. Organic living = expensive. Ashland … would be great if it weren’t for the liberals who will destroy it soon. They will try their hardest to turn it into California. Florence is nice, if the tsunami’s don’t get you. Lake Oswego is a rich area and really nothing special. It rains all the time on the west side of the cascades. Bethany??? I’ve never heard of it and lived here my whole life lol.

  7. What's with the terrible narration? Sounds like a human trying to sound like a robot trying to sound like a human.

  8. This video it’s the opposite of what Oregon is. I think it’s a promotional video trying to get good people back into the state in order for to invest into the state and keep supporting homelessness.

  9. Honestly when I found out I had herpes cancer, I was completely lost because I didn't know what to do and worried about how the accident would affect my relationship. Not until I got in touch with Dr. kojo on YouTube who helped me recover my health and save my relationship. You are the best sir, thank you

  10. You need to come to Oregon to know what you’re talking about. Come to Eugene and see the tent cities with the filth left for the tax payers to pay to clean, Portland and Springfield are no better. Too bad our Oregon politicians don’t work for the people instead of their pockets!!!

  11. Settling up an investment that would benefit you is something one would be aiming towards. I wasn’t really a fan of online business because I have actually been doubting this all my life because I have been taken before by several scammers. But after my encounter with AUSTIN my prospective of online trade changes and I I’m now a millionaire from bitcoin..

  12. Eugene Oregon is where the University of Oregon campus is. The ducks. If they weren't expensive meaning the tuition for out of state students I would transfer there.

  13. I'm nervous cause I don't have that much income but I'm taking my chances on this state. I might not live in Portland all my life

  14. So, Oregon’s ‘best places to live’ are all located on the west side of the state (with the exception of Bend)??? Cool! I’ll continue to live in beautiful (and affordable) Eastern Oregon with little company
