I love Talent, Oregon. I have been living here for 20 years and I plan to be here for many more. It is one of the few places that I have found that has both a comfortable small-town feeling while also having plenty to do. Talent is awesome!

Talent is a pretty decent town to live in. There are various convenience stores in the area that can easily be walked to. The apartment complex that I live in sits in a safe area and is well-maintained. The people in the area are kind and diversity also plays a role here. Though, there isn't much to do as far as activities until you drive out into the next towns over. The only problem I have is that the commute to school or the local soccer fields, for example, is pretty far out.
A very safe town, small, has everything that you need and near all other cities. The people that live in Talent are very friendly. They are slowly expanding, especially when it comes to food, delicious. They have a school park which is great, and another local park that many people visit. The neighborhoods are great and the Talent is an all around great place to visit.
