      I remember when I was first discussing with my grandmother my move to Hermiston. She clearly though the whole time I was talking about my grandfather named Herman for some reason. After talking with grandma and moving here, I've found living in Hermiston to be unique for sure.

      I've lived on the east coast my entire life and never once expected to be here on the west coast. Fast forward 18 years and here I am going to school in Hermiston. I think it's nice, easy to maneuver, and plenty for someone like me to do. Not one to be into the club scene, I'd rather get a pizza and sit at a nice park and eat it.

      Crime is low and the weather is cool. I think that a person looking for a glorious living arrangement will find that this place is more laid back. I hope this review helped anyone looking to check Hermiston out. Give a visit and see for yourself!
