The hidden gem of greater Portland – Lake Oswego, OR
Lake Oswego is one of the best Portland suburbs with top schools, sports programs, nature trails, restaurants, golf courses, wineries, and (of course) a stunning lake. Although not every home in Lake O’ can see the lake, homes in the area are surrounded by towering fir trees, making the community a beautiful and established place to live. Lake Oswego is a wonderful place for those who enjoy an active lifestyle, shopping at independent downtown shops, and a tight-knit community. If you’re looking for beautiful landscapes and an escape from larger city life, look no further than Lake O’! Plus, when you’re here, downtown Portland is a quick 10-mile drive north.
