Lake Oswego, OR


Less than ten miles south of Portland along the Willamette River, Lake Oswego is suburban community characterized by lush greenery and a first-rate personality all its own. The local school district has been recognized as among the best in the nation, the crime rate is low, and the League of American Bicyclists has named Lake Oswego one of the most bike-friendly communities in Oregon (which is saying something). The lake itself is surrounded by gorgeous homes and old-growth evergreens, and large parks and nature preserves are never far away. The area closer to the river is a nice mix of homes and small businesses (cafes, shops, nightlife) in a highly walkable configuration, and trolley service to Portland is available from the Oak Grove Station on State Street.
