It is a nice, safe, reletively small town with easy acess/commute to surrounding areas. There are boutiques, shopping, food, and lodging available and a somewhat diverse population.
Great town that is on the up and up- the entire valley is really. I predict we see a significant amount of people moving here- as it is beautiful nearly year round and there are plenty of jobs for those willing to work. No need to go any further north into Oregon than here, this area is heaven. The only bad part is rainy cold winter but I leave town for San Diego then. :)
