Beaverton is an absolutely lovely town. Everything you could possibly need is here in your backyard. I love how versatile this place is, you have a balance between the city life, and the outdoors life! There are so many beautiful trails that lead you to the most astonishing places. Places you wouldn't have even thought existed right in your own town. Similarly, restaurants and shopping centers are aplenty too. You truly get the best of both worlds.

The city of Beaverton is much like the LBC, there are nice parts and not-so-nice parts. There's definitely a lot of food options around, but they all close early. There is a constant slew of fire trucks and police officers passing by, but in a sense, it makes you feel safer. Like they're just a short call away! Overall, the neighbors are friendly, the neighborhood is clean and there are a lot of job opportunities around.
Beaverton is such a beautiful city! Less than 10 minutes from downtown Portland (depending on traffic of course), the hustle and bustle fades away into a city of great food, outdoor activities, and business. I've lived here a little over a year now and I absolutely love how everything is within a good distance, but also not too loud. The roads are kept very clean and the residents are amazing as well! I would definitely love to settle down in this city!
