I’ve lived all over the country and McMinnville is the best! Small town charm in the Oregon wine-country, just one hour to Portland, one hour to the coast, and two hours to the Mountains. With the best restaurants in Oregon, a small liberal arts college, and an air and space museum- what more could you want? Oh yeah- the people? Friendliest ever.

Best town to start a family! We relocated from Sacramento, CA. The environment is better and the community is very safe and giving. One of the best parts of Mac is the fact that its only a short drive to Portland and about an hour from the coast.
McMinnville is a growing community, with the wine industry booming in the Willamette Valley, art and culture has blossomed in the Valley. Home prices are rising which is good for current homeowners and those looking to invest. McMinnville lacks some of the opportunities of the bigger cities but what it lacks in convenience it makes up for in personality- the farms in the area are bursting with seasonal deliciousness especially during the summer season!
