Beaverton is such a beautiful city! Less than 10 minutes from downtown Portland (depending on traffic of course), the hustle and bustle fades away into a city of great food, outdoor activities, and business. I've lived here a little over a year now and I absolutely love how everything is within a good distance, but also not too loud. The roads are kept very clean and the residents are amazing as well! I would definitely love to settle down in this city!

I moved to Beaverton from Portland because i felt like Portland was becoming less safe and has less oppourtunities to grow. Since living out in Beaverton my life style has gotten healthier, ive gotten a better job, and the area is alot safer. Out here oppourtunities are every where and ive even decided to persue school! Beaverton has nice weather and less rraffic I am very glad i moved out here!
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!
