Hillsboro, Oregon: Where Beer, Birds, Baseball, Farms and Technology Meet

Hillsboro is Washington County’s largest city—and the county seat—with a population approaching 100,000, and also is among the oldest communities in the state.

With the emergence of the technology sector, as part of the region’s “Silicon Forest,” Hillsboro is home to some of technology’s biggest and brightest names, and this city continues to grow.

The city boasts several parks and sports fields, and Hillsboro has a state-of-the-art stadium, which is home to a Single-A, minor-league baseball team, the Hillsboro Hops.

Hillsboro is the Tualatin Valley’s “beervana,” with several craft breweries centrally located near the eastern edge of the city.

Hillsboro offers a plethora of activities in addition to sports. The Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve, attracts hundreds of birds—and bird watchers— annually, while  unique museums showcase a variety of exhibits from yesteryear and today: Washington County Museum, and Classic Aircraft Aviation Museum.

The Aviation Museum is located near the Hillsboro Airport, a general aviation airport used by private and corporate planes and jets, and is home of the annual Oregon International Air Show, held each summer.

The Washington County Fair Complex, located near the airport, and with a dedicated stop along the MAX light-rail transit line, is home to many of Tualatin Valley’s largest annual events, such as the Rang Barse Holi Festival and the Washington County Fair.

Hillsboro’s quaint downtown area has transformed into the city’s arts and cultural hub with a selection of galleries, antique shops, a museum, live music venues and a live theatre company, all located on Main Street.

Main Street Hillsboro is the city’s cultural center, with attractions such as the Walters Cultural Arts Center, which features art exhibits and live performances, and Bag&Baggage Theatre Company. Several shops, antique stores and restaurants—including one of the very few pharmacy lunch counters in the region—and Primrose & Tumbleweeds, which houses the largest selection of Oregon wines available under one roof, also are located on Main Street.

The Hillsboro Farmers Market (Saturdays, May through October) and the popular Hillsboro Tuesday Marketplace (Tuesdays, June-August), and the First Tuesday Art Walk, an evening of new exhibits, receptions and conversations, each set up shop on Main Street.
