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.
Currently a resident in Beaverton, Oregon, and although it rains a lot, there is so much character to this town! Not only are the locals are friendly, but there is such a variety of activities to get involved with like the Beaverton Saturday market. Everyone is welcomed in Beaverton, and I could not ask for a better town to live in.
