I lived in the Seattle area my whole life. I remember being a kid in the late 90's and 2000's growing up in the south Seattle region and compared to what Seattle is now is an amazing difference. I feel like we have almost twice the population than we did 20 years ago. Seriously Seattle is so overpacked now I feel like im living in LA. And it makes it worse because Seattle is not designed for this many people (Hint why there is so many road constuction all the time) Seattle is definitley trying to expand and handle all these people coming to live here but they cant keep up with it. I love Seattle because it is extremley diverse, you can meet tons of different types of people from all over the world. Food/drinks is amazing in Seattle and there is a lot to do and if you cant find something to do then maybe you’re a bore. Yes Seattle is filled with homeless people almost everywhere and it is very annoying because most places in the city smells like urine and I don’t get why the city never cleans or trys to help with the homless situation. It seems like we are going no where and its just going to get a lot worse. And of course the prices in Seattle is just ridiculous. An old 1 bedroom apartment in Seattle will cost at the least $1,700. I currently live in West Seattle now paying $1,600 a month for a new open bedroom apartment and I feel like im living in Manhattan with these prices. I don’t know how some people can afford to live here. But another thing I like about Seattle is it is absolutley beautiful here. It is cloudy and drizzly for most of the year but around June-September is the best weather. And Seattle is surrounded by the most beautiful landscapes. Mt. Rainer is always amazing to look at and it looks like its so much closer than it is, watching the sun set behind the Olympic mountains is breath taking. You can be in downtown Seattle, literally drive to the mountains in just 45 min and your away from the crazy city life and are surrounded by the beautiful mountains and trees. I think Seattle is good for visiting but it is expensive (Seattle has one of the most highest prices for hotel rooms and I don’t know why.) But there are a ton of fun things to do here especially in the summer time. I think Seattle is definitley not for everyone, if you don’t like meh weather, super diverse people, are not a creative fun person, and have no patience in traffic then it its not the place for you. My advise if you are moving to Seattle for whatever reason, try not to move downtown. There are a ton of nice citys and neighborhoods that surround the city that are a little cheaper to live and are less crowded. As for the people in Seattle, there is mean and nice people everywhere you go and if you say everyone in Seattle is snotty and rude then you just sound ignorant. I have met tons of pleasent people from Seattle and dickheads too, but thats every city I go to. The music life in Seattle is only good if you know the right people because there a lot of hidden not advertised events in Seattle. So if your saying Seattle has bad music then you probably just went to all the tourist traps. But to all the people who gave 1 star reviews for the city of Seattle thank you!!!!! People from all over will read the reviews and might avoid moving here(: We have no room for you.

Preparing to move from Los Angeles area to the Seattle area My wife and I are at the beginning of long term plans (about 1½ years) to move to Seattle.
