The weather is great. We get all four seasons. The winters vary a bit. Sometimes we get snow and other times not. The summers are always fantastic! It typically doesn't get too hot. There will be a few days in the 90's, but July and August tend to be in the upper 70's and 80's in terms of highs.

Bethany is a beautiful area in the suburbs of Portland. It's rapidly growing with development. New Schools are currently in the process of being built. Local mini shopping area and restaurants as well as Gulf Course are located in Bethany Village area.
Some evidence of suburban sprawl and growing crowded-ness, but pretty convenient commercial centers, good security/safety, high diversity
