West Linn, Oregon is a cute town on the banks of the Willamette River. Located minutes from downtown Portland, it is also convenient to Oregon City, Lake Oswego, and Beaverton. If you’ve just moved there or are about to become a new resident, we have a few tips to help you blend right in with your charming new neighbors.
Here are some moving tips to settling into West Linn!
Easier said than done, but try to schedule your move for the non-rainy season.
You may need to stand ahead of weekly forecasts and time the move perfectly. In the case that it may be predicted to rain on moving day, take extra precautionary measures to stay warm and dry.
Tarps, rain boots, and rain jackets are great items to have handy. Rain or no rain, your movers will be more than prepared to handle a move.
Prepare for Ski Season
If you are moving to West Linn, you will be closer to some of the best year-round skiing, snow-shoeing, and snowboarding resorts in the country. Mt. Hood Meadows, Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, and Timberline Lodge are just to name a few.
For optimal driving safety, we recommend investing in all-season tires. Having chains for your tires also provides added traction on snowy and icy roads.
Art and Culture
If the arts and culture are your passion, you are in luck!
While the art scene in West Linn itself may be a bit small, Portland is less than a 30-minute drive away. There, you can find countless music shows, live theater, and some of the healthiest and most delicious food that the West Coast has to offer.
Portland is a literary city, too, and world-renowned authors are visiting nearly every month. Add to that the opera, symphony, and many jazz clubs and concerts.
Visit the Portland events calendar for upcoming shows.
