Baker City is a great community to raise a family. Its a safe place to live, and has a lot of outdoor activities. Beautiful mountains, lakes and rivers. The people in this area are very kind and friendly.
Review Baker City
Overall, the atmosphere is great and I'd definitely choose to live here again. The scenery is amazing and one of the only places where one could find it.
There are not many options, and everything is similar.
