West Linn, OR ranks in Money Magazines top 100 Best Places to Live

I've known that West Linn is a great place to live, because I've been living and enjoying it for two years now. According to Money Magazines 2011 list of best small towns to live, West Linn came in at # 69 .
Now..I will however admit that when living in and loving Tualatin for many years, I initially didn't have West Linn on my radar as a place I would eventually live.
Circumstances had us looking for a home with a possible seperate living quarters should my Mother in Law ever need to move in with us, and we fell in love with our current home from the first moment we walked in the door.
We live in the Willamette section of West Linn which is within walking distance to three parks, the tualatin river, and of course one of the things we love..Historic Downtown Willamette where lots of happenings go on through the year as well as being able to just walk (or take a very short drive) up to some great restaurants and shops. This from the article:
"On summer evenings, residents enjoy picnic dinners over concerts in the park. Locals also flock to a revitalized downtown area, Historic Willamette, which offers a farmer’s market and, occasionally, dancing in the street."
great thing is that Tualatin is just minutes away, so I get to enjoy
the best of both! Here are some blog posts where I've written about West
Linn. I'm so glad to see it rank in the top 100 and couldn't agree more
that this is a great place to live!!
