Those looking for apartments in Northwest Washington tend to focus on the larger metropolises like Olympia, Seattle, or Tacoma. But the region is home to several charming smaller cities and towns that might be the perfect place for your family. If you want to get away from hectic urban life, here are two beautiful places to live:

Poulsbo
You might feel like you’ve taken a step back in time when entering this small waterfront town. Near Bainbridge Island on north Kitsap Peninsula, this is a friendly, charming, and unpretentious town. It is also located only a few miles from Silverdale, the region’s main shopping center.

Sequim
On the Strait of Juan de Fuca, this town is chock-full of crabbing, fishing, and aquatic charm. While it consists of a mostly older population, there is still a friendly community of young families.Sequim is home to the Olympic Game Farm, which houses a variety of animal species both endangered and non-endangered. Most of the animals are retired film actors and are eager to entertain. Visit this amazing sanctuary of friendly llamas, performing bears, and rare lions.
