With more than 1,000 acres covering over 100 parks, 30 miles of hiking trails and 25 miles of bike paths, the outdoors are never out of reach.

Things to do in Beaverton OR
The Tualatin Hills Nature Park offers about 5 miles of trails through 222 acres of wildlife preserve. The park includes wetlands, forests and streams and is a great way to escape the city without having to actually leave it! The one caveat is that since it’s a wildlife preserve, this means the pooches have to stay home.
Vineyards are plentiful in the valleys of Oregon. You can easily access Copper Mountain Vineyards and Hamacher Wines within the boundaries of Beaverton, or you can spread out and visit any number of wineries in the Tualatin Valley and its nearby neighbor, Yamhill Valley.
