Crime & Safety
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!
Beaverton is a very diversified suburb of the greater Portland, Oregon metropolitan area. It is a melting pot of cultures and financial means because of the wide array of international businesses and supporting companies. Beaverton attracts some of the highest paid high tech engineers from around the world to the hardest working migrant farm workers. Beaverton has a vast history of farming and once was filled with orchards. Now this area is known as the "Silicon Forest" and houses many high tech firms from around the world. Beaverton is also home to the world's most famous sports apparel company, Nike. Public schools are very diversified and reflect the community we live in. Beaverton has all the large town amenities but still has a small town feel.
