Not many cities can claim to be an hour from the ocean, an hour-and-a-half from the mountains, surrounded by national forests and yet a short distance away from a major metropolitan area, but Corvallis, offers all this and much more as one of America’s Best Places to Live.
Corvallis has long been known as the home of Oregon State University and a progressive, intellectually vibrant community that has led in municipal sustainability practices and green initiatives. It’s also set in a beautiful area of the Pacific Northwest, resulting in a wealth of outdoor recreational activities. Corvallis was named to our list of 10 Best College Towns in 2017 and 2012. It's no wonder that houses in Corvallis don't stay on the market for long.
