It's an ok town but its kinda far from big cities (Portland and Salem) so I have to drive to most of my activities (things like music lessons, orchestra, sports, gyms, grocery stores that aren't Walmart, etc) However if you don't mind that, it is a unique town to grow up in. Everyone associates Woodburn with the outlet mall but once you actually drive into the town you will realize the rest of it is nothing like it. Its been pretty run down/poor for years but this past summer they have been doing some renovations to make our small downtown area safer. Woodburn has amazing food and some cultural activities which is pretty much the only thing that makes the town stand out. Also if you care about a good high school do not come here! It's split into four small ones but they are all still in the same building and it is overcrowded, not that safe, and doesn't offer many extracurriculars outside sports.

I grew up in Woodburn and it is an amazing town for anyone. It is surrounded by amazing attractions that must be visited by anyone who is visiting Oregon. For starters, Woodburn is only minuets away from the wonderful tulip festival that happens during spring. Likewise, Woodburn is most visited by people from the neighboring states of Canada and Washington who visit its famous outlet mall. An outlet mall that has amazing prices and merchandise that on one else offers. Lastly, Woodburn's downtown is filled with history and has with amazing restaurants. Its restaurants are well known that even President Obama made a stop at one of its restaurant during his campaign.
I like that it's a relatively small town. Depending on where you live and how you interact with others, it's easy to make friends. The city isn't chaotic and is a good distance away from Salem and Portland, sort of in between. Also, there are locally owned restaurants that have great food and service. Lately, our mayor has made a few changes that I am content with. Depending on what type of place one is looking to live in Woodburn could be a good fit or not an option at all. I hope at the very least they take a chance to visit.
