I'm actually about to take a job where I would split my time between Everett and Woodinville. I'm wondering where people think I should consider living when I move?
I'd prefer to keep the commute to 25 minutes or less.
What are the pros and cons with the different areas, I'm a 30 something guy with a wife and small child.

Thanks for the help!

Everett: You'd be further from Woodinville, and in the "convergence" zone , meaning maybe a little more rain and/or stormy weather. Everett also has some slummy areas, but nice areas as well. Lower housing costs.

Edmonds: Great downtown, charming and walkable with nice restaurants. More expensive housing than Everett, but less expensive housing than Woodinville. Has a ferry terminal for a quick escape across the water.

Woodinville: Some people really love Woodinville. Horse farms, megamansions, and expensive housing. Scenic. Wineries. Bad traffic. Good places to walk.

Shoreline: Closer to Seattle. Mostly quite nice except maybe those parts right near Aurora Avenue. Less expensive housing than Edmonds and Woodinville.

Also maybe consider Mill Creek and Mukilteo. A bit closer to Everett for both, Mukilteo has all kinds of charm.

Perhaps North Everett would be good, I like living closer to I-5. Like the pp said Mill Creek is a great place as well. And your wife will be able to take the little one to Imagine - kids museum.
