Your Guide to Living in Everett, Washington
Welcome to Everett, Washington, your landing port just 30 minutes outside of Seattle. We’ve got a breezy character that never gets old and with so many happenings to adore, it can be difficult to know where to start- so we’re bringing you your go-to guide for living in the largest city in Snohomish County.
Food & Drink
First thing’s first, Everett is full of incredible restaurants, and as the second-largest port in The Puget Sound (after Seattle), there’s no skimping on seafood. While the list goes on in that department, a few of our favorites are the Jetty Bar & Grille and Anthoy’s Homeport Everett – both with views that are only beat by those experienced from your neighboring Waterfront Place Apartments. Everett’s got you covered no matter what your food mood is, whether that be a fabulous evening out at Lombardi’s Italian, a refreshing portside pint at Scuttlebutt or At Large Brewing companies, or Mexican at Taco Book or Tampico. Don’t worry, we’d never leave you hanging without recs for the best local coffee shops in Everett- there are plenty of downtown cafes like Narrative Coffee and Cafe uu, as well as our Port of Everett neighbor, Seas the Day Cafe.
Art & Exhibitions
Everett is widely known for its aircraft-centric attractions including the The Flying Heritage Collection at the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum and the Museum of Flight Restoration Center, but there are a wide range of other experiences to enjoy such as the Imagine Children’s Museum and the admission-free Schack Art Center. Many of these operations are on a temporary pause due to Covid-19, but you can check out this guide to Sculptures in Everett if you’d like to take in the town’s outdoor art from your own Everett, WA backyard.
Parks & The Outdoors
There are never-ending parks to enjoy in Everett. For some breathtaking views we’d recommend Legion or Grand Avenue Park. On the southern end of the city you can explore hikes and trails that surround Silver Lake such as Thorton A. Sullivan and Green Lantern parks, or, head East for some wildlife viewing at Spencer Island Park. North of the Waterfront Place Apartments is the Evergreen Arboretum, a peaceful place to soak in the plant life of Everett’s premier public gardens.
Everett is home to a lively entertainment scene- catch a show at the Historic Everett Theatre and Village Theatre, where you can also take acting classes for yourself, or try your hand at the immersive games of Escape Scene. There are also plenty of ways to have fun supporting local artisans & farmers at the Everett Farmers Market on sundays.
Travel & Transportation
There’s convenient access to plenty of transportation throughout the town. Jetty and Whidbey Island are just a ferry ride away, and The Everett Transit Station connects to bus and train services to get you around the city, the state, and the country. Best of all, Everett is home to the beautiful Paine Field Airport, which means no pre-travel before your real travel. The possibilities are endless!
