Nestled along the Puget Sound, Shoreline is a city just north of Seattle. With Interstate-5 cutting right through the middle of the city, getting to and from the freeway, and going south to Seattle or up into Snohomish County and all points north, is easy. There are several neighborhoods with small hubs, but at the present, Shoreline does not have a ‘downtown’ area like many cities its size. That may change with Light Rail coming to the city in the next few years.
Described by residents as a growing, well-run city with scenic vistas and a long list of conveniences, Shoreline is a top choice for many in the region. Its excellent schools make it especially attractive to families with children in school, and its many parks, restaurants, shops, and cherished annual community events make it all the more appealing. Many people like being right next door to Seattle as well, whether you commute in for work or enjoy exploring the city.
For those who are interested in moving to Shoreline, you can expect to find a good variety of real estate. Mid-century homes, new construction, older properties, ramblers, and Lovell style homes are all in the mix.
“I love the parks in Shoreline—Hamlin Park, Paramount Park (a great place to take kids, and there is a skateboard ramp there as well), Saltwater Park and Boeing Creek Park provide plenty of year-round activities.” –REALTOR® Samantha Arango
Shoreline has a public pool, two recreation centers, athletic fields, and a bustling schedule of community events, such as the annual Strawberry Festival, Summer Concerts in the Park, Farmer's Market, and a stop on the Christmas Ship™ parade.
Don't miss Sky Nursery, the family-owned & operated destination gardening center. Or the Landmark Crest Cinema Center, an icon in the area with $4 movies, always fresh popcorn with real butter, and they now serve beer and wine.
“Commuters love Shoreline because it’s halfway between Everett and Seattle, so whether someone is going to Boeing or Amazon, the commute is not overly painful. Plus there are so many Rapid Ride options; transit stations nearby and soon the Light Rail. Easy back roads to Ballard and Queen Anne, and just a quick trip to Edmonds to hop on The Sounder.” –REALTOR® Cori Whitaker
“People use mostly cars in the area, but because there is a large transit center at Aurora Village, riding the bus is very convenient. The Interurban Trail provides a great way to walk or bike & is connected to the north to Snohomish County’s & to the south to Seattle’s Interurban Trails. With 2 light rail stations coming in the future, that will only increase the options.” –REALTOR® Jill Langer
“In Shoreline there are mid-century to newer homes with a few, much-older, ‘homesteads’ mixed in. There are many flag lots where homes are built behind original houses—this option offers great privacy yet easy access to main roads.” –REALTOR® Jill Langer
