Western Washington climate - 9/4/2009
Western Washington has a moderate climate with summers that do not get too hot as a rule usually the upper 70's to low 80's for a couple months then dropping back to lower 70's. It is an area that has the ocean to the west and the mountains to the east so it gets a lot of rain along the coast, grey cloudy days inland and snow in the mountains during the Read More

Traffic - 11/17/2007
Kent is nice for driving because it is close to 4 highways/freeways. If your are commuting, I would suggest working south of Kent. Going North to or through Bellevue or Seattle very congested. Kent is also close to the Seattle/Tacoma Read More

Good Neighborhood ... The Lakes - 10/14/2006
I lived in Kent for 2 years at the Hampton Bay Apartments. I loved my neighborhood, apartment and the Kent location. There were nice walking trails along the river and golf course. There are a lot of corporate business right in Kent. Kent felt like a small town relief from the bigger surroundings communities like Federal Way. I was close to the SeaTac Airport, easy freeway and highway access. Can easily go anywhere from Kent (Auburn, Puyallup, Federal Way, Tacoma, Seattle, Bellevue). There are iffy and bad pockets in Kent so be cautious, but there are treasures to be found too! Easy access to shopping up in South Center. Beautiful views of Mt. Rainer on clear days.

I felt safe in my neighborhood, not a lot of crime that I heard of. A melting pot community, all races, and mixed relationships not a huge problem. Good for both families and Read More

Feels Like a Desperate Place - 7/17/2006
I love Seattle, so moved here to Kent last year because I cannot yet afford to live right in the city. Kent has a lot of industry here and a lot of decent jobs, so I do not know why it has so many desperate people as well. Could be because of the large county jail smack in the middle of town. And the two very busy train tracks within 4 blocks of each other. Very loud freight trains as well as two different commuter trains create a LOT of noise and traffic here. The crime is high (I don't have any statistics). Seems like a lot of folk with heavy substance abuse problems live here. That is what drove me to this site, trying to find a better place to live. I wish this town Read More
