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.
Review Bethany
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.
The city of Portland is one that offers extensive opportunities. The schools are continuously improving which is crucial for a student like myself, and the job market seems to be expanding. I love living in this city and I definitely picture myself starting a life here in the future.
