North Bend is a lovely town, with both pros and cons. Its location is in a perfect distance between hikeable forest trails and beautiful Oregon coast shores. The people, for the most part, are friendly and kind. I've met many wonderful people here since I've moved from Texas last May.

It does have downsides, being an older coastal town it is a bit dingier than I am used to, although some could say that adds to its charm. The other downsides are its significant homeless population and rampant drug problems. Much of the community has banded together to provide food and lodging for the homeless, in the area, many of whom have come from neighboring Eugene, and Portland. Despite the homeless problem being so prevalent, It's a beautiful thing to see the community come together in response, to help their fellow man.

Before my family's move to this area, we investigated many towns, to find the best choice for our family. At the end of the day, I'm very happy that we ended up where did.

Although beautiful, North Bend Oregon is not especially wonderful. The mayor in this town tends to avoid allowing bigger chain restaurants, shopping centers, or stores in this town. It's frustrating and I think it creates a problem with homeless people and drug use in the area.
I have lived in North Bend Most of my life, its a very family friendly place! The only thing I would change is just having more things to do at night.
