It's close to several well-kept parks that have fun designs. I feel safe. Easy access to lots of options for shopping, particularly groceries. Easy access to commute out of Beaverton.

I have lived in the Central Beaverton area all my life. It's been a fun and interesting experience so far. Trimet makes getting around fairly easy. It's almost like Downtown Portland but for beginners.
Central Beaverton is very suburban in character, but has excellent transit access and is the only area in Washington County (outside of the Orenco Station area) that is truly walkable. I haven't owned a car since I moved here 4 years ago, and I've had no issues with my day-to-day life. (Commute time is based on a transit commute to either Portland or somewhere close to Beaverton.) You get the Portland "locavore" vibe, but also can get a cheeseburger at McDonald's if you want. Almost none of these rankings apply anywhere else in the city (the cost of living and real estate market are even worse).
