It's no surprise that Oregon touts the Nation's 10th-fastest rate of net migration. What does this mean? People are moving to Oregon and not leaving. Here are 7 reasons why people love Oregon.
Oregon is beautiful. You don't have to drive far to experience towering redwood trees, clean coastal beaches, gorgeous Cascade mountain range, flowing rivers, and tons of wildlife. There is so much to do outdoors; from biking, hiking, skiing, fishing, rafting, or simply taking in nature at its finest.
Oregon is friendly. People tend to be more patient and kind here. Perhaps it's the clean air, or the chill lifestyle that puts them at ease. In any case, don't expect to rush through the coffee line without chatting to the Barista about your plans for the day. They genuinely want to know =)
Oregon has clean air. Maybe it's due to all the trees, but it sure is nice to breathe clean air. There tends to be less litter too, as the locals are environmentally minded.
Oregon has low DMV registrations. No matter what type of car you drive, DMV registrations are $116. for two years! Crazy good!
Oregon roads are the best. You would think with low DMV registrations, the roads would suffer. But, that's not the case. Oregon keeps their roads and highways in great shape.
Oregon provides full-service at the gas pump. That's right, you never have to pump your own gas in Oregon. Furthermore, gas is cheaper here than in neighboring states. It's win-win for everyone.
Oregon has affordable housing. This may be a little subjective for some, but if you're coming over our southern border from California, you're going to feel like you hit the housing lottery... for real!
