Looking at Sandy, Boring, and farther east. Also considering McMinnville and parts farther west. Can anyone give me personal experiences about living in or near any of these places? I just need some peace and quiet for a change. THANKS!

Define "commute distance" - do you mean to live in McMinnville or Sandy and commute to Portland on a daily basis? Are you willing to be on the road for at least an hour and a half in the morning?

If you are going that far out, look at Banks instead of McMinnville. That way you avoid going through Dundee, and will shave 45 minutes off your commute.

Banks is a very rural town but growing fast with new developments because more people are commuting. It is a straight shot on the highway into Portland. There is a lot of farm land and rural houses around Banks. Pretty area. Good luck!

Default Rural Areas Around Portland

I am looking for rural areas that are no more than a 45 minute drive, but it may be worth it to live farther out. Banks sounds good. Thanks for this info.
