The Beaver is Oregon’s state animal, and Beaverton is one of the best places to live in Oregon. Just seven miles west of Portland, Beaverton has a bevy of choices when it comes to homes, entertainment, careers and activities. Beaverton was once considered simply a suburb of Portland, but it has come into its own as a city in the past few decades. Our city was even as one of the 100 "best places to live", among smaller cities in the country named by Money magazine. Beaverton’s economy is thriving. Both Nike and Columbia Sportswear call land close to Beaverton home and many Beaverton residents work at these companies. As part of Oregon’s Silicon Forest, Beaverton is also home to several tech companies, include Textronix and the Linux Technology Center of IBM. The Terpenning Recreation Complex, which is maintained by the Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation District, encourages Beaverton residents and people in nearby towns to stay active. The Complex hosts a pool, athletic center, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, baseball and softball fields, multipurpose sports fields, skate parks, basketball courts and walking trails. Homes in Beaverton range from midcentury classics to luxury new construction. With easy access to both the Oregon coast and the Cascade mountains, outdoor activities are just a drive away.
