Living in Boring
Boring is a sleepy bedroom community located at the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range, only approximately twelve miles southeast of downtown Portland and fourteen miles northeast of Oregon City. This quiet unincorporated community is located just along Oregon Route 212. Residents can choose to head up the mountain to enjoy some recreation on the slopes or stay in town for some local activities.
By name only, Boring may sound like it's not the place you want to be but, the name is the opposite of what you will find. The town enjoys the play on words surrounding its name, such as the Not So Boring Bar & Grill or Boring & Dull Day celebration held every August. The event honors the partnership between Boring, Oregon and Dull, Scotland providing entertainment by bagpipes and drummers in kilts, barbershop quartets and ice cream trucks. Liepold Farms offers fun fall festivities such as corn mazes, pumpkin patches and hayrides for the entire family to enjoy. The Nutz n Boltz Theater Company offers exciting performances throughout the year. Of course there is biking on the Springwater Trail that runs 40 miles from Boring to downtown Portland and along Johnson Creek. Hiking is plentiful throughout Boring where you will likely find huckleberries, blackberries and wildflowers.
Boring consists of a good mixture of white and blue collar but also a large telecommuter population. Aside from the blue and white collar workers and telecommuters, there is also a decent amount of workers that are self employed, operating successful businesses. Boring unfortunately does not have a public transit system, but being such a small town there wouldn't be much of a need for it either.
