Moving to WA...Everett area

Just thought I would drop by and say hey to the future neighbors!
I will be moving to Everett in about 4 months.

Anyone know of nice places to live in the area?

The one thing that will take more getting used to, is the cruddy roads and traffic jams. Best to store your Camaro during the rainy days and drive it on sunny ones. Which we do have. Just not as many as AZ or Ca. The best part of WA is offroading in the mountains (not in a Camaro) and certain highways make for excellent road trips. Hwy 101 aroung Oly Peninsula is one of my favorites. Chuckanut drive is nice and Mt Baker Hwy is great too. Everett is not too far from Mt Baker.

Likewise, I'm a Texas boy myself. Don't miss those 100 degree days. Tons of stuff to do and see in WA. Wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

since you are from south cali you shouldnt worry much about emissions because washignton state & cali is about the same now, in some areas.

if you can it be better to live either north or east of where you are stationed at. housing prices can be out of control

Welcome, We say it rains all the time to keep the naysayers out.
All joking aside AZ is cool, but you can't beat the mountains and views in the summer. Plus if you enjoy the outdoors as I do then you will be in heaven.
As for Everett living not real sure part of the greater King County area housing is little more, but not as high as others in King area. I know a few people up their, but most live out side the King area and commute. That's also a problems do to traffic and such. Sorry not much help, pending on were you work and such someone from the area should be more help to you then I.

My step father worked in Everett and lived in Snohomish. I liked that area when I would visit. It's nice, met a lot of nice people and had pretty decent neighborhoods. Good schools from what my mom told me. Perhaps that's a place to look if you're still looking?

I live in Burlington which is about 30-45 min (depending on traffic) north of Everett. It's a really nice area with plenty of shopping and just close enough to the Seattle area (airport) for me. Our neighboring town, Mount Vernon, is also a really nice area. I know they are on the upper edge of your commuting limit but take a look. There are tons of houses for sale right now, including the houses on either side of mine (I guess they don't like me ).

I just moved to WA in June so I'm fairly new to the area. Tons of great people though, and tons of great Camaro owners as well. Welcome!

I think that would be to far for him to travel since hes Military hes got to look forward to that communte every day, not something worth wild to do during the winter months.

Mukilteo is a great place to live. It is close to everything and has quiet or busy parts depending upon where you want to live. Housing to buy or rent can be on the high side but it is a place I love and currently live there.

Well im not to worried about the price being on the High side.... Its worth it to be in a nice safe area for the wifey! So it has quiet and busy areas.... Is there a distinctive way to know whats what? Like north side is quiet...etc etc

Thanks for the info! I appreciate it

Noisy is any house or apartment that is in see distance of the Speedway. The speedway is the main road through and to Mukilteo. Old Town is good, water views. Harbor Pointe area nice very woodsy close to golf course. Picnic Point is older nice to very new nice homes and neighborhoods.

Mukilteo is a nice place. Watch out for that ferry traffic. Have you looked at Granite Falls. It seems like a nice place. Small town though. If you want shopping malls not so good. Closer to the mountains. Quiet. Also check out Camano Island and Stanwood. They might be within striking distance for a decent commute.
