Hillsboro is the government seat of Washington County and is now Oregon's fifth largest city with over 100,000 residents. The city is a thriving center
of agriculture and high-technology industries. Many high-tech companies are located in Hillsboro including Intel, Qorvo, Solar World, Yahoo! and FEI
a division of Thermo Fisher Scientific - allowing many Hillsboro residents to have the opportunity to work at some of the world’s largest advanced technology companies.
Yet Hillsboro has retained its small-town charm and tradition. Downtown Hillsboro hosts both a Tuesday evening Market and the Saturday Farmer’s Market, and offers a downtown drug store complete with a soda fountain. You can also find several boutique shops lining the main street of town, as well as several restaurants where you can enjoy an evening meal before being entertained by our local Bag & Baggage Theater Productions.
Hillsboro is an ideal place to nurture your family’s mind, heart and body with its many community theater productions, libraries, festivals, athletic
events and art shows. One of the most popular events is the annual Oregon International Air Show. The show brings 80,000 plus people to the
Hillsboro Airport each summer for one of the nation’s best aerobatic extravaganzas.
Hillsboro is the home of 21 public parks, some of the area’s premiere wineries and the 710-acre Jackson Bottom Wetland Preserve. The
Preserve offers superior resources for services related to wetlands and aquatic education. Hillsboro is home to five golf courses, including the
Reserve Vineyards and Golf Club and Meriwether National Golf Club.
