Living in Sherwood has been nothing short of amazing. In my opinion it is the perfect place to raise a family, and eventually retire. From the quiet, safe neighborhoods, to the fantastic school systems and low crime rate. There really isn't anything negative to say about living in Sherwood.

When I relocated here to work in Portland, I checked out each surrounding city before deciding on Sherwood. What a great decision that was. If I had to choose my favorite thing about Sherwood, it would be the overall safe feeling that you have when you're in the city. One of my favorite places to eat, is Fat Milo's Family Kitchen. Good old home cooking, and great place for breakfast.

All in all, while it is hard for me to find negative things to say, there is the cost of living. It is not the cheapest place to live. So having a solid source of income is a must to own a home in Sherwood. That being said, you get what you pay for, and I know that I will be here until my golden years, and then some.
