Why Happy Valley?

Happy Valley is an entrepreneurial hot spot that means business, but also boasts a playful side. Living among the region’s rolling ridges and valleys, you can have the best of it all. Big-city amenities like world-class restaurants, theaters and festivals sit close to miles of hiking and biking trails, plus acres of farmland. A vibrant community welcomes newcomers and diversity. Plus, you’ll experience an affordable cost of living, all while being just a short drive or flight from some of the country’s top destinations.
