Centralia is a small town located about 25 miles south of Washington's Capitol City, Olympia. Living in Centralia is significantly cheaper than living further north in the State's more populated cities. With a small population of 16.7K, Centralia has plenty of amenities for the city's residents. I often find myself enjoying a meal at one the many ethnic cuisines located around Centralia's Main Street near Centralia College.
As a Washington native, I love discovering new places to get coffee, especially during the colder season. When I left Seattle and decided to move South to a less populated area, I was afraid I would not be able to enjoy coffee to the same extent I did when living in the city. Centralia surprised me with many individual coffee shops located near my neighbourhood. One of the best areas in Centralia to find coffee shops is on Harrison Ave. off of the Interstate 5 freeway.
Although the winters can get cold in Washington, the summers are climate is enjoyably mild, I found my place here in Centralia and I don't think I'll ever be leaving.
