2018 announced their annual listing, which ranks Beaverton at number three.

“It’s wonderful and rewarding to receive this kind of recognition and continually see Beaverton at the top of national rankings,” said Mayor Denny Doyle. “We are a friendly, active and responsive city with wonderful parks, schools, services and neighborhoods. I’m proud of this honor, and thankful to our residents and many partners who make Beaverton the amazing city it is.”

Beaverton was noted for its great schools, public transportation, outdoor natural areas, scenic parks and big area employers such as Nike, Intel and IBM. Family (and pet) friendly attractions and eateries, as well as proximity to “date night” spots like wineries, also helped propel Beaverton to one of the top spots.
