Beautiful neighborhood to raise a family. I am originally not from the area, but since moving to Beaverton I have fallen in love with this area! People are super friendly and are overall animal lovers! I love walking my dog around the neighborhood, she gets to meet & greet many other dogs that are also walking by.
Review Beaverton
I love Beaverton, I grew up here going K-12. It's very family friendly with lots of parks nearby. You're an hour from the coast or the mountain whatever you fancy. They have plenty of local chain restaurants yet some original too. Not too far from wine country or nightlife of Portland. We have beautiful mild summers with occasional heat spells and not too cold of winters. The rain can get overwhelming sometimes but there's nothing better than the fresh sent of trees after a brief shower when it's been dry. Love Oregon and it's lanscapes!
Excellent public and private school options, friendly and helpful neighbors in the multiple neighborhoods we have lived in, and there is ample access to work and play anywhere in the city. Be sure to check out Tualatin Hills and Cooper Mountain Nature parks!
