Best neighborhood near or in Seattle for familiesMy family and I (husband and son) want to move to Seattle within the year...possibly much sooner. We are heading out at the end of August and I'd love to be able to check out some neighborhoods. We are coming from the DC Metro area and have lived in suburbia for quite some time now. We're looking to change it up a bit :)Criteria for us:- max house price we're looking for is $600k-$650k- great schools are a must- my husband is an ultra runner so wants to be closer to the mountains vs water (but I love water) - is there a great middle ground? - We have two dogs so walking trails are a nice to have- We love to cook, so great grocery stores are also a big plus even over restaurants.We're not sure where we will be working yet, but want to consider Seattle itself as well as the surrounding areas.Thanks in advance for your input!MeridethJuly 24 2013 - Seattle00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
