Vale Reviews

Vale is a quiet small town. but that isn't always good, it can sometimes be boring especially for teenagers but if you are looking for a quiet uneventful life then vale would be the place for you. The biggest events we have are highschool sports and then we have the 4th of july rodeo in the summer that brings in people from all over the state. Other than that it is very quiet and a very comfortable life for someone who is ready to settle down.

Vale is a old town in good old Oregon. Vale, Oregon has many traditions from watching the football boys every Friday night to have our basketball salmon stake dinner every year ending with an auction. Becoming together a whole community to help each other out. A small town with a big heart.
This is a quaint little town. A few buildings have collapsed under the record snow for our community. The snow has caused frustration around here, yet we all find it more pleasing to the eye. Most of the year, the fresh farmed fields look more like 50 shades of beige.
