There's a place where pretty much everything is nearby- a local WalMart, Fred Meyers, Winco, heck even a Tigard Music store that is great with repairs and tutoring. The PCC Sylvania campus is right nearby and there is a small mini-store and 7-11 within walking distance, as well as a playground, elementary school, and public library. The local businesses here are excellent at what they do, and they are very literate in the English language, regardless of whether it is their first language. Even family-owned businesses are friendly, fast, and easy to talk to.

The general atmosphere of my neighborhood is safe. I live close to several schools and parks which is nice. There is also quaint shopping places and I live close to several other suburbs of Portland. I live 5-10 minutes from downtown, 15 minutes from Tualatin and only 5 minutes from Lake Oswego. There is a lot of shopping and family activities to partake in.
Most jobs here include being store employees. Most employment opportunities include being in customer service, being a cashier, or being an assistant. Most of the office jobs and such are located farther into the town, where the bigger companies are based in.
