Beaverton is near Portland area. Thus, people can enjoy city life. Here is quite rainy area because this is in Oregon. Thus, you should like a rainy weather. Recently, housing rental fee is constantly increasing, but it is not quite expensive in the West coast. Also, this area does not have top-schools, but students can have a fun with campus life because Oregon is the one of safe state in the U.S. You are welcome to Beaverton, Oregon!

Having lived in Dallas, Texas for the majority of my life, moving to Beaverton was a real shift. While Dallas is a big city full of business-oriented, Beaverton is more relaxed. Everything from the stores to the schools screams organic and real. Beaverton's community tends to be very passionate about certain things, such as the boundaries set by a recently added high school but does not tend to get heated over more radical arguments.

My only critique is that pacificism can lead to laziness. Being too laid back has resulted in the frustration of myself and my family on more than one occasion. It is not uncommon to see cars with only one light working, as the auto shops do not require checkups.

Overall, if you want to be in a community that has a kind vibe, with limited arguments, Beaverton is the place for you.
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.
