    Beaverton Reviews

    2 reviews
    Beaverton is a tiny little town with some amazing people in their community. The newly renovated activity center is a wonderful place to go have a cup of coffee and muffin at the cafe, read a book at the library , take in a yoga class, or walk through the Beaverton history of the plastics industry which is huge in the area. Stroll down the street to have the best wet burrito at the Beaverton Tavern. Also, have great fireworks on 4th of July.
    Review Beaverton
    Great small town community. Perfect for raising a family or vacationing on the lakes. Education system could be improved.
