Hello. My boyfriend and I are planning to move to the Seattle area next year. Neither one of us has been there and we are planning on visiting before we make any major decisions. We are wanting as much information about the area. Maybe a little about us first...We are in our early 20's and moving from a small town in Missouri. We want something that will be easy for commute and looking more at the suburbs of Seattle rather than Seattle its self. Moving to a big city after all our lives in a small town is more than we want. We want a place that is safe and has a range of activities to do. Also we are wanting a place that is affordable. We are hoping for around 1000 dollars a month. I do not know if this is possible, however. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Being from Arkansas once upon a moon, a move to a larger city seems intimidating but you find that once you are in your neighborhood, whether in Seattle or the burbs, it does not feel that big, until you are stuck in traffic. I would base on where you live on where your job is. A rent of $1000 is possible, depending on the suburbs. I live in a nice place in the middle of Seattle and pay about $1000. The Eastside suburbs, Bellevue, Kirkland, are pricier but are nice areas. The northern suburbs of Edmonds and Lynnwood are nice but are too cookie cutter for my taste. Southern suburbs, Renton, Federal Way, Kent, Auburn are nice depending on the neighborhood. Typically, the closer you are to the lakes or the Sound or on the hills, the nicer the neighborhoods usually. Best of luck.
