Klamath Falls ( KLAM-əth) (Klamath: ʔiWLaLLoonʔa) is a city in and the county seat of Klamath County, Oregon, United States. The city was originally called Linkville when George Nurse founded the town in 1867. It was named after the Link River, on whose falls the city was sited. The name was changed to Klamath Falls in 1893. The population was 20,840 at the 2010 census. The city is on the southeastern shore of the Upper Klamath Lake and about 25 miles (40 km) north of the California–Oregon border. The Klamath Falls area had been inhabited by Native Americans for at least 4,000 years before the first European settlers. The Klamath Basin became part of the Oregon Trail with the opening of the Applegate Trail. Logging was Klamath Falls's first major industry.

lots of community opportunities to volunteer, clubs and groups, activities. They do lack some events for retirement age people that work dring the day. many of us do.
We do have a very active senior center that helps with meals-on-wheels, activities, transportation, and some entertainment, among other things. There are also several areas including trailer parks that are set up for seniors. Prices here are lower than in larger cities so in that way it is age friendly also.
I believe Klamath Falls is friendlier for more adults as there aren't many places for kids and teenagers to go to for activities. I believe there are a lot more areas like restaurants and bars, making it more friendlier for adults to hangout. Working options also seem to be more professional (the hospital) and for more experienced people.
Klamath Falls is a great place to live. There are more days of sunshine here than anywhere else in Oregon. We also get some snow which is very pretty. We have many places in town that have senior discounts, and I notice seniors working here as well.
General livability. Everything is close by and convenient to get to. Most people seem polite and willing to help.
