While plenty of entertainment and employment opportunities exist in Stanwood’s diverse enclave, the town’s proximity to Seattle is another big reason people from all walks of life love to call it home. One of the first things that may come to mind when considering Seattle is rain. While they certainly do get their share, it doesn’t actually always rain there. In fact, many east coast towns get more annual precipitation than Seattle does and they also experience dry, sunny weather in the summer. What Seattle does have is mild year-round temperatures, with outdoors enthusiasts enjoying the many parks, trails and climbing opportunities every month of the year. While the most common Seattle weather is cool and overcast, creating a mystical ambiance to the lush green hills that have earned Seattle the nickname “The Emerald City,” rest assured; whether you’re visiting or relocating to Seattle, you won’t need your umbrella every day.
The second thing you may think of is the culture. Widely known for its influence on musicians and artists, Seattle has drawn craftsmen and women of all persuasions for years to the unique texture of its many distinct districts. But there’s a wealth of other sorts of recreation and entertainment here too. There is something for everyone here, from orchestra and chamber music venues and countless performing and literary arts of all kinds to parks, fitness, theaters, museums, restaurants, bars, clubs and some of the nation’s best coffee shops.
Seattle is also visually stunning. Its lush green hills and breathtaking skyline are punctuated by the famous space needle and is surrounded by the blue water and stately mountains. A thriving economy, celebrated focal point of the arts and excellent educational institutions add to the countless reasons Seattle is one of the best cities in the nation to take up live, work and play.
