Forest Grove is a quaint little town located about 30 minutes west of Portland. Surrounded by farmland and vineyards, Forest Grove provides that feeling of being in the country yet you can drive to many famous Oregon attractions in less than an hour. From the Oregon Beaches to the Columbia River Gorge. Visit Historical Pacific University and the downtown area. It's 2016 and this area is being discovered as one of the best places to live in the Portland area. Let me answer any questions you might have. I am the Forest Grove area expert.
