Living in Seattle

Like living in any major city, living in Seattle comes with a number of pros and cons. The inhabitants of Seattle are, for the most part, very open-minded and into expressions of art such as music, painting, glassblowing, theater, etc. It has a very active nightlife and the best restaurants are always packed with the freshest seafood. Another major advantage is that Seattle has no income tax, only a high sales tax that does not apply to groceries and home purchases. It also attracts a lot of well-educated and young people so you should have no difficulty locating a job or finding a hip social circle. Unfortunately, Seattle is infamous for its bad weather and has terrible traffic. Living in Seattle costs a lot compared to other major cities and requires a high paying job to afford the added expense and high property taxes. In recent years, the per capita crime rate has become greater than that of New York City.

Things to do in Seattle

Everyone knows when you come to Seattle, you do not want to miss the Space Needle and the Aquarium. It is perfect if you are traveling with children, your family, or as a couple. You and your significant other should not miss the Chihuly Gardens of Glass, which is located right below the Space Needle. Pike Place Market and the Experience Music Project Museum are also ideal destinations for couples. If you’ve got children to entertain, the Woodland Park Zoo, Pacific Science Center, and Woodland Park are the places to go. The most iconic shopping center in Seattle is Pike Place Market, but University Village and Fremont are also worth checking out. For when you don’t feel like spending money, some of the best free things to do include visiting the Olympic Sculpture Park, Seattle’s Art Museum, Seattle Asian Art Museum, and Gallery Walk. There are also plenty of great places to walk your dog or spend some family time outdoors. The best parks include Camp Long, Carkeek Park, Lakeridge Park, Matthews Beach Park, and Lincoln Park. The biggest annual events to happen in the city include the University District Street Fair, the Northwest Folklife Festival, Freemont Fair and Solstice Parade, and the Bite of Seattle. With all of its live music and art festivals, Seattle is one of the best cities to experience unique expressions of culture.

Tips for Renting in Seattle

If you’re looking to move to Seattle from Portland, you will notice that people are more obsessed with education—there are dozens of universities here. In Seattle, landlords are required to give a minimum of 30 days’ notice of the termination of a year-to-year lease contract. A month-to-month agreement continues until either the landlord or tenant gives the other a written notice at least 20 days before the end of the rental period. Tenants come under the Washington State Residential Landlord-Tenant Act, which is although very similar to Portland’s current legislation, there are some important differences. For example, with a month-to-month rental agreement, either you or your landlord can end the agreement with a 30-day written notice in Seattle. In Portland, however, tenants are required to give a 90-day notice for no-cause evictions—the landlord does not have to tell you the reason for the 90-day notice, yet the reason must be a lawful one.
