I've only spent a few weekends there mostly watching my kid play ball, but probably half dozen times the past couple years. Not a bad place to visit, kind of secluded but fairly close to the coast or Salem/Eugene which are a bit larger. Mostly agriculture around that area. The old part of downtown is cool, lots of shops, restaurants and what not but not too big. The town is sort of spread out, almost two parts. Close to the college is the old downtown and then heading North there is more shopping and appears to be newer with residential in between. Personally don't know anybody who lives there, know a few who went to OSU but that's about it.
