Review of Longview, Washington

Not a bad place to live
Star Rating - 5/26/2006
I've lived in Longview on and off for the last 10 years. It's really not a bad place to live. The house prices are certainly cheaper than Vancouver Portland while the commute is still very reasonable. The town had been lacking for a long time in the shopping and dining end of the spectrum but I suspect that as more people are forced out of the Portland-Vancouver markets the area will gain more options.

Crime is a big problem and will only be rectified by the public. Many sex offenders and drug addicts are shipped to Longview from other areas of the state. People are starting to take notice of it and put up a fuss. When the city gets a handle on it Longview will be a great place to live.
