I love Newberg! I've lived here for the past 4 years for college and plan on staying for a while. The town overall is great. Fairly small so it's easy to get from one side to another in about 10 minutes. With rush hour traffic you might hit 15 minutes, so either way it's not bad at all. The restaurants are good. Not very many options for late night snacking which is weird for having a college campus at its center. Newberg is very safe. I currently work as a private security officer and have worked with the local police dept on several occasions and I enjoy working with them. Very respectful and are well trained.

Newberg is my home town. I even stayed in my home town to go to college. I enjoy my school and my town, but Newberg could become more of an enjoyable place if some things changed. Any shopping area in Newberg closes before five or at five. Hardly any restaurants stay open late and most places down town are adults only after a certain time because they serve alcohol. There needs to be more diversity in restaurants, and family friendly places.
Many people living in Newberg now are here for college only and they feel like they do not have anything to do that is fun and enjoyable on a Friday night. Most people have to go to Sherwood or further. There are just not many things to do in this tiny little town.
But Newberg will forever be my home and my favorite place to be.
I absolutely love this town! Moving here has been wonderful. It is close enough to portland that you have a relatively short commute if you like the city life but far enough away to still keep that small town feel. Biggest down side is that housing is limited and very expensive.
