If water activities such as boating, river rafting and salmon fishing are your thing, and if you enjoy hiking both beaches and mountains, relocating to Lynnwood would put you within a short drive of it all. Lynnwood is a community situated between Seattle and Bellevue (around 15 miles from each), where both retail businesses and science and technology companies thrive.
While many people both live and work in Lynnwood, it is still considered a “bedroom community” for professionals employed in downtown Seattle. It does boast a unique mix of urban lifestyle, suburban comfort, and small city life, with ample shopping, recreation opportunities and a cooler, wetter climate than Seattle.
Adjacent to Lynnwood is the oldest town in Snohomish County, Edmonds. It is a delightful waterfront community located on the shores of Puget Sound. This small town is an active arts and cultural area, with well established neighborhoods and spectacular views of the water and Olympic mountains. Apartments in Lynnwood/Edmonds average $600-$800 per month for one bedroom and $900-$1200 for two bedrooms.
