I enjoy being so close to Mt Hood Community College and just about anything else I could need. Everything is a 30 min bus ride away, or shorter by car. You're positioned perfectly between the mountain and the city, each are only 30 minutes away driving. It's the perfect spot, especially for community college.

The city of Troutdale is well-known for it's Landmarks. It has a Historical Columbia River Hwy that stretches over 75 miles, with amazing views of waterfalls, hiking and river. Chanticleer Point is the place to see when it comes to breathe taking spectacular views overlooking the Columbia River Gorge. It's close proximity to shopping outlet at the Gorge Outlet at great deals. Schools lack security and academic specific courses. The safety overall has improved, including the nightlife has productively increased. Overall Healthy living is on the lower scale, many fast food chains in the area. The diversity is minimal in the area majority is White. Most places would need to be commuting to reach destination city is widespread. The job opportunity is small in comparison to Portland, OR. In regards to the Real Estate Market it is steadily increasing, because cost of living is less, will need to travel for work. Definitely recommend to visit all the scenery.
Troutdale is far enough away from Portland that it's nice and quiet. However, there are quite a few Trump supporters, and the East wind from the Gorge makes it bitterly cold sometimes.
