Beaverton is a normal town that is a very good distance from Portland and other towns around. My favorite parts about this town include the location, the diverse and common nature preservation areas, and the affordability. Beaverton is in the middle of the road for many things, and that holds especially true for its location and affordability. Located next to the country, the city, and other towns around, Beaverton is a perfect spot for getting places quick. Money is also not a worry here either, as there are generally expensive and inexpensive options for anything everywhere. There are many large and small businesses and corporations of just about everything, including eateries, stores, and businesses. There are some downsides though. There are many underdeveloped areas with no sidewalks, old buildings and sometimes unsafe situations at night. There are also numerous amounts of construction happening all the time here and it is increasing significantly every year. Beaverton is solid!

Beaverton is a diverse community with a lot to offer. I have now lived in Beaverton for 2 years and am still learning about the area. The last neighborhood I lived in was not the best in regards to location and surrounding areas. However, now that I have moved to the Tanasbourne area it is a developing area that has much to see!
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.
