Hillsboro, Oregon

Residents of Hillsboro, a suburb 16 miles west of Portland, know how to keep busy: Activity options on a given day might include the symphony, a baseball game, a 60-voice choir performance, an air show, the county fair, or a wine tasting. No need to leave town for any of it.

You won’t necessarily need to leave town for work, either. Nike, Intel, and IBM all have major corporate offices in Hillsboro. (Residents have relatively modest commutes, averaging 23 minutes.)
