Question ID: 470525
I am going to be moving to Washington from Berkeley, California this summer, and
I am having a tough time finding information about the specific area I
will be moving to.  What is the best town to live in near the Boeing
Everett facility (quick commute by car, nice area, preferably near a
beach)?  Also, what are some good apartments in this area (I am
probably going to be getting a border collie)?  Further information I
would like, besides the general "just moved here" stuff (i.e.,
restaurants and bookstores), is where are
good places to go running and hiking, horseback riding stables in the
area (English), and is there somewhere I can continue sailing lessons?
 Especially for the running, I would prefer to know of places within
as short a commute as possible.  Thanks!

Hi jac84, 

Thanks for the question. I think Everett is probably your best bet. It
has all the resources of a city and is also close to Puget Sound and
many parks. And, of course, it is only a few miles from the Boeing
Everett Facility.

I hope the following information helps. I will be happy to provide
more detail if necessary. Just let me know what you need more
information on.

Good luck!

Thanks to omnivorous for the comment!  Omniverous is more familiar
with the area than I am, so his opinion should definitely be

I meant to mention earlier that if you end up not wanting to live in
Everett and want information on other areas, I will be happy to
provide you with it.

It really all depends on how far you are willing to go from the Boeing
facility. I wasn't sure, so I went with the closest area that met your
specified needs. Let me know if you want to investigate another

Best regards,

Hi Anthony,

Thanks for your answer.  I just have one quick clarification request:
could you go into a bit more detail on places to run in the Everett
area?  I run on average for 2 hours each day, and dislike street
running.  Are there any parks (safe ones that are dog-friendly) with
long trails?  Thanks!

"This 100-acre wood is as big as the Pooh forest. It's Everett's

I hope this helps. If you need help selecting a particular area of
Everett, I will be happy to further assist you. What type of apartment
are you looking for? Size, number of rooms, price range would help.

Thanks again for the question. Good luck with your big move! It is a
beautiful area.

Jac84 --

Adiloren-GA says "go north young man" but my recommendation matches
that of Horace Greeley -- go west.  I live in Mukilteo and I'd make
the same recommendation for the search that we followed when we moved
here 12 years ago: pick a residence west of WA525 or WA99 (if you want
to go further south towards Edmonds).

Specifically, I'd recommend the mixed-used community of Harbour
Pointe, which is built around a golf course.  It has ample rental
apartments, condos and single-family homes.

Harbour Pointe Boulevard itself is 3 miles long and used actively for
jogging.  The area's home to a brand-new YMCA:

Here are a couple of the apartment complexes nearby.  All have their
own exercise facilities and swimming pool:
On the Green,48,122&wsv_psPropertyID=7676

Bay Court,48,122&wsv_psPropertyID=8315

For sailing, I'd strongly recommend a sailing club on the N side of
Seattle called Windworks, as they do an excellent job of mixing
different types of sailors -- and have bareboat charters for rental. 
Shilshoal may look like it's a long way from Everett/Mukilteo, but
it's not:

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease don't get a border collie if you'll be living in an
apartment. They're too smart, too active, will have major psychotic
episodes if locked up all day. Don't think a 30 minute walk each day
will do it- unless you're in serious training for ultra-marathons,
your dog will need more exercise than you can give it.
I live on a 100-acre farm, my border collie chases kangaroos and
rabbits all day, and still wants a 1-hour walk each night, getting
very ugly if she doesn't get the exercise.
How about an Aibo?-
Good luck with your move.

I agree on not getting a border collie.  Please read up on the breed -

I agree with Whino and Tlspiegel....

As a previous owner of a border collie, I cannot emphasize enough that
they are VERY active and cannot be left alone without exercise for any
length of time. My dog never tired of running, jumping and just being
on the move.

Please, please read up on this breed before making any commitment.

Thanks, Omnivorous, I'll definitely check out Mukilteo, as well.  For
all the people who posted comments about the border collie idea, I do
run for two hours each day, go home at lunchtime, and hike on the

Jac84 --

I may be able to help with the running though the best choice is
probably just N of the town of Snohomish.  The parks on the west side
of the county tend to be smaller, as it's near the water and more

Choice #1: Harbour Pointe: the path goes alongide the street and is 3
miles from end-to-end.  Kamiak High School and H-P Middle school each
have running tracks and are along the route.

Choice #2: running on Boeing property.  Though I'm not familiar with a
circuit, it's a huge piece of property.  And, they joke about running
in the tunnel under the 747 production lines.

Choice #3: the town of Snohomish has a 7.5-mile long bicycle trail
running N out of town called the Centennial Trail:

By, the way, the town of Snohomish is probably 20 minutes from the
Boeing Everett facility -- depending on traffic.  It's really more of
a rural town (you'll see some of Adiloren's riding suggestions are
over there).  It has a main street well-populated with bars,
restaurants and antique stores but is on the edge of farmland.

There's also a trail on the west side of the county call Interurban
Trail, following the tracks of an old Interurban trolley.  But it's
very close to congested streets and not recommended.

Should you decide to go the more urban route -- living in Seattle
around the UWashington, you'll find two popular trails:
1.  Green Lake
2.  Burke-Gilman

In addition to Mukilteo, I lived in Lake Steven's/Marysville area and
thought it was wonderful, although it will be a more significant
commute. If you run daily and don't like to get wet you may want to
look for a gym near your future home or invest in a treadmill. I have
lived in Alameda as well and No. Cal. is nowhere near as wet as

Kirkland is beautiful and 'happening'. Mukilteo is nice but very
quiet, as is  Everett. Kirkland is rather far south though, and
commuter traffic is very heavy.
