I liked that Tualatin is a place where there is barely any violence. It is very diverse in public schools and your kids will get a good education. Some of the favorite local restaurants here are Mashitas Teriyaki, La Isla Bonita and Roxy's Island grill. There are a lot of summer events such as the Crawfish festival, Art Splash and the Pumpkin Regatta festival. For entertainment there is a summer movie night where they put up a screen near the commons for families and they have a variety of food. And if that entertainment doesn't settle it for you then their are bands playing in the commons during summer and a lot of people go there for the fun.

The parks are great, as are the local shopping areas and incredible public library. The schools are great aswell, they have great afterschool activities. The restaurants are great as are the craftstore and New season store right near the library!
Tualatin doesn't change safety hazards such as school crosswalks despite calling the city of Tualatin repeatedly. They have also expanded shopping centers with no parking so commuting by car takes considerable time and vigilance. The cost of living is very high and they offer little to no affordable housing or resources for those individuals who are on a tight budget. Police response time is slow. There is rarely anything to do that is family friendly with the exception of some holidays. Public transportation is difficult to figure out and for the housing areas of Tualatin you must walk over a mile to access a bus. To get to the Wes commuter train you have to walk over 2 miles. Public transportation does not run frequently, especially after 9:30 am.
