Review of Milwaukie, Oregon

if you're into suburbs and "quiet"
Star Rating - 4/27/2008
My parents currently live in Milwaukie. My family has been in the area for three generations now. My grandparents originally moved to the area because of the influx of jobs on the west coast during the depression. My parents lived in Chicago, Port Angeles, and other pockets in the Portland Metro area before choosing to permanently settle in Milwaukie. They bought their house for $280K in 01 several people in their housing area have sold since then because of the increased housing prices. They love the area because it is close to dog parks, is a short drive to anywhere important (the city of Portland, schools, work, etc), is incredibly quiet for it's accessibility, and its small town feel. There isn't any exciting nightlife in Milwaukie, but if you like the suburbs and are looking for a cheaper housing market for the west coast, it's not a bad place.
