Beautiful Place - 9/22/2017
I moved here 5 years ago to keep my career moving after a layoff in sunny Colorado, where I had lived for over 30 years. I was so afraid of the supposed gloominess that most people report. What I found was an amazingly beautiful place that I am thankful to be a part of. Yes, November through February is mostly cloudy and wet, but the trade-off is lush vegetation, gorgeous flowers, fresh air, and the Northwest climate...where it rarely gets much below 30 at night. The summers and fall are amazing. However, if what you want is lots of solar radiation...maybe another place would be more sutiable. Bothell is a clean, neat, attractive town with nice restaurants, plenty of jobs, and quick access to both ocean water and stunning mountains. It was a bit expensive I'll have to admit, but you don't have to live right in Bothell. There are outlying areas close by that are a bit more reasonable and still very nice. The taxes are high in comparison to the average, but not the worst by any Read More

Quietude - 12/10/2010
This small town on the edge of the Seattle megaplex is a fairly quiet family oriented collection of bedroom neighborhoods. Life here is oriented around schools, churches and other organizations. Not really the place to walk around meeting people. However, it lies at the apex of an excellent road system and has many public transportation opportunities, allowing anyone with the need to do so go to where they Read More

Bothell Washington - 12/3/2008
Nice, clean, friendly, low crime, easy access to Seattle, Everett and Eastside(Kirkland/Bellevue/Redmond). Great job opportunities with Boeing, Microsoft, telecoms, HP etc. Not seeing too much of the recession here except for recent layoffs at WaMu. Can't wait for more Read More

Nice place bad weather - 9/12/2007
I have lived in Bothell for 5 years. The upside is that people here are very nice. You have access to Seattle, although if you have to commute it is not great, because it can run you 45-60 minutes. The economy is vibrant with a lot of jobs.

The downside is the weather of course. From July to October it is absolutely gorgeous. However, from November through February it is very gray and rainy. March - June is a mix between nice weather and Read More

tough job market - 7/12/2006
Despite what the statistics may say, there are few full-time jobs for college graduates here. For example, when certified, qualified school teachers are cleaning houses for a dollar over minimum wage (no benefits, no health insurance) for two years, that's a problem economy. When certified, qualified computer programmers are doing in-store demos of everything from shampoo to pet food to crackers because those are the only jobs they can get, that's a problem Read More

It's Getting to Me--GREY! After 4 generations, we - 6/22/2006
Cost of living high, but, so what. People were distant, but, now they're simply rude and insincere. It's a city totally stuck on itself but unable to substantiate any true claims to fame other than it's previous "Best Places" recognitions. I'm almost 50 and a fourth generation Seattlite (family came from Scandinavia and Britain in late 19th Century). There are many good things about Seattle, but, #1 thing going against it now is: GREY! Used to be I could take it, and I've lived in Honolulu, Anchorage, NYC, San Francisco but most of my life in Seattle. It's soooooooo greeeeeeey! Family always said, "We left a cold, dark depressing place for another cold, dark depressing place." It's not rain that bothers me, it's the lack of definition. No shadows, no definable clouds (they're up there somewhere), no rain, no sun, just that eerie, bleak, "blues-inducing" grey. Sorry all you new comers, but it's not the rain that'll get you, it's the monotony of monochromoatic Read More
