Hillsboro is in the heart of the Pacific Northwest’s Silicon Forest. Known for global employers such as Intel, Nike, Tektronics and IBM — to name a few — the Hillsboro neighborhoods offer convenience to those working in this industry. Business parks and high-tech campuses are intersperced throughout many desireable neighborhoods, and finding the right home shouldn’t be a problem.
Hillsboro has had some major renovations in the past few years, focusing on the Orenco Station area in particular. Orenco has a great shopping center at the heart giving this a very local, community feel. Brownstone townhomes make this an extremely attractive area. An active Saturday Market offers shoppers fresh produce from local family farms that have been in the area for many years. Fruits of the season, and fresh greens are a main staple of the Saturday Market fare.
The added feature of having the MAX — a light rail train system — with many stops along the way, offering commuters a quick ride into work is another great advantage. Hillsboro is about one hour’s drive away for the Oregon Coast (heading due west), and heading east, how about skiing year-round at world renowned Mt. Hood. Work, or play the City of Hillsboro is a good place to call home!
