Seattle and seattle area information

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I recently moved to Olympia, WA, and currently staying with my brother until I can figure out where I would like to live in this area. I would like to live closer to SEATAC (Seattle/Tacoma Airport) or in the city of Seattle. I'm hoping to be in my own place sometime early next year and would like some feedback on a few things.

 

I would like to know what neighborhoods I should start searching for my new place to live. I am willing to live in a suburb of Seattle as I do not feel the need to be right in the middle of everything. What I am looking for is a neighborhood with reasonably priced (for this area) apartments or homes for rent, that is safe, gay/gay friendly, and close to whatever I might need such as gym, grocery, open space such as trails and places where I can have my dogs off leash, easy route to airport etc.. I would also like to know if anyone can recommend an off-site airport parking facility that doesn't break the bank and is convenient, safe, and possibly have a frequent parking program. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

 

I couldn't be happier to be out of FL. Moving this far away was not an easy task with three pets and a car that my brother and I drove from FL, but beyond that I am excited to be in a new place. I love the weather and I have enjoyed walking through the woods with my dogs. Living with my brother's family has required a lot of compromise on my part, but as a temporary inconvenience I can live with the rewards of being in the beautiful northwest.

 

Again, any information would be greatly appreciated!

Hey Michael, Unfortunately I do not have specifics, other than to say that my aunt and cousins live in Tacoma. When I have visited, which is twice a year I found that the inlet was amazing, although everything else is a bit low key.

 

So glad that you made the drive safe and sound. I just went the other way, so I know what a haul it can be. Take your time exploring different locals, and from this Floridian to you, I wish you the best in your new home.

the greatest beauty is

Organic wholeness, the wholeness of life and things,

the divine beauty of the universe.

Love that, not man apart from that,

or else you will share man’s pitiful confusions,

or drown in despair when his days darken."

having visited that city on numerous occasions it would seem to me (for business reasons and for lifestyle reasons) you would want to be near downtown Seattle or perhaps in a place very near the airport. That is where 90% of the clients will be. I love the place but too cold there for me in the winter.

You say that now, but just wait. :)

 

I've been there a couple of times and it's absolutely glorious. One of my best friends lives near Capitol Hill off Madison (which is conveniently near Steamworks!) The neighborhood has pretty much everything you're looking for and is stunning with views of everything. It's pedestrian friendly and there's shops, stores and it's convenient to downtown too. Whatever you do, plan around traffic and avoiding it like the plague. It's horrible there, but you probably already know that. Anything north of town sucks for traffic... when we drove to Vancouver it was bumper-to-bumper the entire way.

 

Queen Anne is a great area as well, but can be pricey like CH. All the neighborhoods around UW were very pretty, in my opinion. There's another great neighborhood around what's called "Fakebucks," or the Roy Street Coffee/Tea Shop, which is a prototype high-end Starbucks. The area is beautiful as well... one of my clients out there walked me around the entire area and gave me a great tour. I can shoot him an email if you like, he's got the low-down on everything pretty much.

 

Good luck, I think you'll really enjoy it there.

I agree that Capitol Hill seems to be a nice area, and my understanding from when I was last there this last July, was that they're extending the subway (downtown Seattle transit tunnel) to Capitol Hill, making access to downtown and the airport even easier.

Don't forget Ballard but you'll need a car if you live there.

I live in Burien which is just west of the airport. Reasonable albeit slightly off the beaten track which is fine for me. Easy access to Seattle via mass transit or a freeway (509) that goes directly from Burien, connecting with the 99 into downtown. Really convenient and east access.

I know I'm a little late to this party, but we can't say the same to my friends in Minneapolis who wouldn't mind a little Florida weather when it's getting down to negative 60 degrees below 0 this weekend. Temperatures that cold, you don't get sun burnt...you get freezer burnt to a crisp lol. I thought I was going to lose my hands in -10 degree weather, I can't even imagine what -40 feels like. Probably like sticking your hands in a mitten full of glass chips lol.

 

But then again, Florida's barely changing weather can get a little mundane after a while.
