Friendly, Clean and convineient place!

Jan 27/ 2013 review Our family lives in Renton since 1999. This city is safe, clean, lot's of outdoor activities, and has good shopping spots. Relative to other King county places Renton is one of the most affordable cities. Cost of living is lower than in Seattle, Bellevue or Kirkland. There is new shopping center in Landings, Very close is South Center mall and local shopping plazas all over. It is ultra convenient to Seattle or east side employment centers and SeaTac airport. Since 1999 we have never been victim of any crime and consider Renton to be very safe. Climate is very mild with warm and dry summers and wet and cool winters. In March we already have spring flowers and good weather lasts until almost Halloween. Air and water quality is excellent. Utilities are reasonable except that water and sewer charges are getting somewhat pricey ($125 a month including all taxes). Cedar river, Jim Coulon park and near by Mount Rainier and some of outdoor attraction. Housing is dirt cheap compared to Seattle or east side and taxes are very reasonable (We pay $2540 tax for our 1880 sq ft house with 9000 sq ft lot and 2 car garage). Food prices are good and during summer months there are several farmers markets where you can buy fresh organic farm produce. Very close to major blueberry\apple\veggie farms and markets. We are also close to UW, BCC, and other higher education centers. Schools are reasonably good and safe and we were lucky that elementary and middle school where our kids went offered "Discovery" programs. We lived in Toronto Canada, Sarasota FL and Renton is much better choice that either for us. If you are new to the area try looking for housing in Talbot Hill, Victoria Hill, or a bit out of downtown core and you will find many great choices. If you are able to afford Kennydale are that is great location as well (a bit pricier housing).
