Corvallis is a wonderful place. There are many great places to eat, hike, and relax. The library is full of amazing books and very helpful people. The riverfront is beautiful and a lovely place to walk and stroll around the Saturday market. If you're looking for more adventure, there's Mary's Peak close by or Bald Hill to go for hikes. If you have children, there are many parks to go and enjoy. Corvallis has a wonderful pool too, with a fun slide and an outdoor area to relax and soak up sun. The community is very pleasant to be in and there are fun stores to peruse downtown. There are a bowling alley and two movie theaters for rainy days, which there are a lot of!

Corvallis a wonderful college town! It has plenty of coffee shops and book stores for the relaxed reader, while there are multiple bars, diverse restaurants, and events happening continuously that keeps a person with an active night life happy. Not to mention, it is a gorgeous town that really focuses on its landscaping year round.
Corvallis is a quaint little town that might be the setting for a typical high school movie. It's a college town that is mainly populated with HP workers or college students. Almost everyone that grows up here leaves. Corvallis is a town full of privileged people that don't know what lies beyond their town borders. We have tons of grocery stores, and some unique shopping opportunities downtown. Almost all of the restaurants are brew pubs with fantastic burgers. Overall Corvallis is a small gem found between Portland and Eugene in the Oregon valley- definitely visit!
