There is plentily of shopping to found in King City but if you don’t find what you are looking for, it takes no effort at all to venture out to other neighboring towns that also have plenty of shopping since Tigard, Sherwood and Tualatin are all very close by.

Like all of the neighboring towns, King City also has opportunities for hiking, biking and exploring.  There are trails and parks that offer excellent recreation resources.
