"Busy but Family ish"

185th is a very long street.. .it starts at Farmington on the 'other side of the railroad tracks' and goes all the way down past Tanasbourne shopping center and into Bethany almost to Old German Town Rd (in other words... from Aloha High School all the way past Westview and PCC Rock Creek). At the Farmington end its mostly 'old' houses... ramshackle and side streets with nicer houses.... all from when Aloha was a Walnut Tree (or was it Pecan Tree?) orchard. Once you get to the Aloha Post Office and cross over to the 'nicer' side of the tracks, you get more affluent style homes and some apartment complexes. Past that you get main thoroughfare cross streets - Walker Road, Cornell and Baseline (off of which the Elmonica Max station runs) and then you get out of the residential area and into the shopping centers. You have the old Albertsons Shopping center and then the beginning of the Tanasbourne shopping center which has the Target and now a Best Buy and Safeway along with alot of smaller shops (Kinkos, Subway and tons of fast foods).

Keep going across the overpass, which goes over highway 26 and you have Westview High School and a much more affluent area of Beaverton called Rock Creek. Keep going and you end up at Bethany and the turn off for Portland Community College, Rock Creek Campus. Once you pass that turn off you go out into 'country'... which leads to Cornelius, and St Helens and out that way.

All in all 185th is a really nice 'main street' as main streets go. Ive lived alot of places and its not too crowded... not too busy and is very clean. Id much rather go along 185th than any of the other cross streets to get from one end to the other. Its about 10 miles I think from start to finish.
