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!

Beaverton is a great area to grow up in. The schools are wonderful. The communities are great. The people who live in Beaverton are all friendly and help each other out when needed. There are plenty of stores to shop in and there is a wonderful mall just a few minutes away. Nike has their headquarters here in Beaverton and is a beautiful campus to walk around. Intel is also based here which makes for great job opportunities. The weather during the summer is beautiful! There are many places to go hiking and to enjoy nature. Portland is just a short drive away and is a great place to visit.

I moved to Beaverton about 4 years ago and it been one of the best decision in my life. Beaverton offers many opportunities and resources for its resident, visitors, and local neighbors. One my favorite things about the city is there public transportation. The second is the community. The people are very friendly and willing to help each other. Beaverton offers events and programs, so all can come together. One event would be it International Night Market because of its cultural diversity. That brings me to the third favorite thing about Beaverton, its diversity in cultures. A way it could improve is in its sustainability. As a participate of the U.S. Department of Energy's SolSmart recognition program, Beaverton has done many things to help its community and its streets. There so much the local government can do but we need the people of the city to come together to improve. Beaverton is one of those places where I can see that happening.
