Most Liveable City," 60 minutes from the famed Oregon
coast, and a short drive from countless golf courses, wineries
and vinyards, and any number of venues for outdoor activities.
Hillsboro was incorporated in 1876, and has grown from a small
farming community into a modern city of 70,000 residents.
