While this Portland suburb may not be as well-known as its larger neighbor, Beaverton displays much of the same Pacific Northwest charm with a more relaxed local atmosphere…and that’s saying something. The relatively small city has earned recognition from Money magazine as one of the best places to live in America, citing the low cost of living, excellent schools, cultural diversity, and strong economy.
That last item is heavily thanks to a growing tech sector in Beaverton, as well as the city’s most famous corporate resident: none of the than the world headquarters of Nike. The natural landscape is a huge plus as well, with large public parks in the city and stunning nature preserves along the Willamette River nearby.
The city center is a modest yet fun collective of storefronts and cafes, with the majority of the community adopting a quiet suburban atmosphere; combine this with the fact that it’s less than thirty minutes from downtown Portland by car, and it’s easy to see why so many folks choose to live in Beaverton and commute.
