Lake Oswego is a nice yuppyish neighborhood located right outside of Portland. It's notable for its nice restaurants and cafes. There's not really much of a nightlife though.Recommended for:

Lake Oswego is located primarily in Clackamas County with small portions extending into neighboring Multnomah and Washington counties. It's a short drive South of Portland and has a well-to-do reputation. My Son goes to school near here, so I have a chance to see for myself.
The Town was founded in 1847 and incorporated as Oswego in 1910. The city was the hub of Oregon's brief iron industry in the late 19th century and is today an affluent suburb of Portland.
