Hillsboro is a quiet country town. People are friendly and the view is beautiful both day and night from anywhere. The view of the night sky alone will make you fall in love with this area. People are always willing to help each other and are not expecting something in return.
It's a small town, where everyone is friendly. I would like to see more things done for kids. A watermark, maybe a better park.
