In King County 15 miles north of downtown Seattle, the relatively new city of Shoreline sits along Puget Sound with 3.4 miles of shoreline, acres of parks, excellent schools, and active neighborhoods.
This semi-rural area, once an unincorporated island, became a city 1995, although it was settled in the late 1800s. Surrounding cities include Seattle, Edmonds, Woodway, and Lake Forest Park. As Washington’s 15th largest city, Shoreline offers wide open spaces, nature trails, and excellent beaches.
Restaurants, shopping, and other businesses can be found in the downtown Aurora Avenue Commercial District. Shoreline Community College and an excellent public school system attract family-oriented residents, who enjoy the rural setting well within reach of busy downtown Seattle.
Shoreline’s prime location, 382 acres of parks, and a growing economy make this a desired location for many looking for rental apartments on Puget Sound.
