With a funny, quirky name like Boring, you can’t help but create an equally quirky motto: “the most exciting place to live!” Boring is technically considered an unincorporated area of Clackamas County. It has less than 8,000 residents and the name ‘Boring’ is embraced by locals, and included in various business names. It overlays a stretch of Highway 212, the thoroughfare between Hwy 26 and 205 in Clackamas County. This farm town has the advantage of easy access to both the Portland Metro and the Mountain. It also happens to be home to some of the best pumpkin patches on the East ide of the Portland Metro.
