There's really not a whole lot to do in this town, unless you like eating out fast foods, drinking wine, and have a lot of money to spend. The driving here is ridiculous. It isn't very diverse here, compared to towns in Washington County. The police here like pulling over people for any reason, and seem to hand out tickets like candy to meet their quotas. You can't get far if you don't know someone in town. I've seen a large Caucasian population that seem to be stuck in another time. They're snobby in this town. Overall, I like the secluded feel, I wish there was more activities to do. It's up and coming area, but they're charging more to live out here than anyone can afford off of minimum wages. The town really needs to adapt into a new era.

I grew up in Newberg and didn't appreciate it until I left. It's an amazing town for families. For young people without kids, its not so hot. It's a safe, quiet town with good schools and good neighborhoods. There's enough things to do. It's beautiful and the community is so together and strong whether you are new to town or a local. People know each other but not too much, like a really small town. I love visiting Newberg and may be will move back someday. But it doesn't have a lot of jobs and there's not super exciting things to do; you have to leave town for both of those things. But it's not super far because Newberg is so close to Portland.
I have lived in Newberg for over 20 years, my children grew up here. There are minimal local options for employment, very little affordable housing opportunities and we need to have more local programs that help our people who have mental health and substance abuse issues. And we not a lot less wineries. Less touristy and more taking care of our own community.
