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!
Review Beaverton
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!
Very safe area with major employers located in or near the city such as Nike, Columbia, Intel, Tektronix. Unfortunately this has led to traffic congestion and on top of that, lots of construction projects. Ample housing opportunities for renting, real estate is pretty pricey- a seller's market for sure. Lots of shopping options and typical suburban activities. Public transportation provides a great alternative to sitting in traffic for your commute. Great downtown area and the farmer's market is the best around.
