Seattle is a growing hub in the Pacific Northwest that is known for more than the Space Needle, strong coffee and regional rainshowers. Residents have the freedom - and the green space - to walk, jog, ride-share, bike and even kayak to work from their unique Seattle apartments in any of the Emerald City’s 18 charming neighborhoods, all beneath the majestic Olympic Mountains. Say goodbye to the grunge scene and hello to this sparkling metropolis that draws nearly 20 million visitors annually.
The city’s neighborhoods are much like the area’s Seattle apartments - all offer a little something different, depending on what you’re looking for. Downtown Seattle offers residents all the modern amenities of big-city living, but with more green spaces, parks and walking trails than most other urban hubs; Ballard attracts a hip crowd of locals and visitors with its laundry list of trendy restaurants, bars and art galleries, plus a stunning waterfront location; and Bellevue is a nature lover’s paradise across Lake Washington, boasting 100 parks, close proximity to Woodinville Wine Country and amazing views of the natural landscape and urban cityscape that makes Seattle such a unique place to call home. It truly is the best of both worlds.
Visitors and locals alike find plenty of entertainment and recreation along Seattle’s more than 200 miles of fresh and saltwater shoreline, and getting around the area is easy thanks to local and national bus routes, regional bridges, highways, state ferries and city light rail lines. Major area employers call the Puget Sound home, just a short commute from most Seattle apartments, include Costco, Amazon, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Microsoft and Expedia, which bolster the local economy and attract nearly 20 million visitors to Seattle and King County annually. When it comes to after-work entertainment, there’s no shortage of things to do, from local farmers markets, art festivals, top chef-run restaurants and amazing shopping opportunities. Don’t ignore famous destinations like Pike Place Market and the Space Needle, which are fantastic options for non-tourists, too!
But perhaps what residents love most about living in Seattle apartments is the city’s green city initiatives. Seattle’s Office of Sustainability & Environment is hard at work creating a sustainable city, which is a constant work in progress. Major strides have been made, from the city’s increased number of LEED-certified buildings, emphasis on alternative transportation like biking and walking, improved recycling programs, and more parks, trees and community gardens made available to Seattle’s residents. The Emerald City nickname has never been so fitting, and with so much outdoor recreation available to Seattleites, it’s no wonder millions take advantage of everything the natural urban playground has to offer.
