Forest Grove Reviews
Forest Grove is a nice small town that encompasses Pacific University. You have the convenience of being close to a major metropolitan area (Portland) while at the same time being a bit removed from the hustle and bustle that goes along with living in a city. Lots of fun restaurants and a cute downtown with many local wineries and farmers markets year round!
Small college town. Great restaurants! Real Estate prices are going up as people from Portland move out west. Still, great commute of Googel, Intel and other tech companies
One thing i like about forest grove is the community and how friendly and welcoming everyone is. Although the forest grove school district can use a lot of improvement on their academics, the staff is very supportive and friendly. Another area that can be improved is the lack of activities and events forest grove has to offer, you'd have to go out to Hillsboro if you're looking to have some fun
