Don't expect much...

I moved here over a year a go. I was told there is less crime up north of Seattle than south. I bought a beautiful condo on West Casino Road just steps from the Boeing Plant. Bad move! This place is so 'ghetto'. People on drugs all over the place, drive by shooting and murders. There have been 2 fatal killings since I've been next door and one down the road. Most of it is drug-related. This is a very poor Hispanic community. I used to live in Kent, wa and found it so much better. I would stay away from the south Everett area.

A convenient city

Everett is conveniently located off of I-5, not too far north---about 30-35 minutes from Seattle without traffic. In terms of food, there are TONS of restaurants of different types. Shopping is super convenient too, and the downtown area has some cool pubs and eateries. There are also multiple microbreweries because that's how we roll here in the Pacific NW.Weather is... well... it's the Pacific NW. So generally beautiful summers (not too hot), mild (but very rainy/wet) winters, etc. Yes, we get lots of rain/drizzle here. The flipside is we have great food, great beer, and are surrounded by beautiful mountains. Cost of living in Everett is surely well over the national average but much MUCH more affordable than Seattle. It is still possible to buy a house here at a not-so-terrible price though prices are going up as we speak.

everett is not such a great place, been here 4 yrs now

I don't really like it. Everett sucks to be quite frank. I have lived in many cities, from Florida, to NYC, to Denver,Colorado, and have never encountered as much rudeness and inconsiderate people. The people I have met that were born an raised here all seem to be mentally unstable, as if there is some weird force field over the city that makes people weird. Stay away from everett. There is no sense of community, or friendliness in everett. There is a great video of a fireman from everett that was on the tv show, the weakest link. Search YouTube for everett firefighter on weakest link. This guy will show you what the typical, arrogant, attitudes most people from everett have. Thank you.

My Experience in Everett, Washington

I visit my mother in Everett Washington twice a year and it is a gorgeous place all year round. The trees are huge and the flowers bloom in all kinds of different colors. The city itself is a little sleepy compared to the big city of Seattle which is not too far away, only about 30 miles to be exact.

In Everett, some of myy favorite things to do include going to the childrens' museum because it's such a big place and to check out the cinema under the stars which goes on at Silver Lake (on Silver Rd.) every Friday in July and August. With the marina and the laid back lifestyle, nobody ever seems in a hurry in Everett and you will find plenty of fisherman and park goers about, anytime of day, even when you would expect everyone to be at work! It can get rainy during some parts of the year in Everett but I suppose that is what keeps the trees green and the flowers blooming. Overall it's a great place to visit and there is never a time when there's nothing to do, what with all the parks and recreation.
