Bothell still has a wonderful small town atmosphere even though the town has grown so much over the past 10 years. The Northshore School District is one of the best in the state. I have an elementary age child who experienced two different elementary schools in the area and I have nothing but great things to say about both. With the housing boom, we have a great diversity of families and community support. Bothell has many small businesses that are thriving and contributing to the wellness of the community through many outreach programs. All in all, I love living in Bothell!

I moved to Bothell in August 2016 and I couldn't say that I felt better in this city than Kirkland. This city has accessible stores, great transit services to get to locations I need to be, various picks of cuisine with favorites like Readi Spaghetti, The Rock Wood Fired Kitchen, Red Robin and places for bubble tea and teriyaki. I enjoy the calming lush trees and the atmosphere it provides for residents and I hope that people can take a chance to check out one of the best cities on the Eastside of Washington state!
We had the option of moving to Mill Creek or Bothell; so glad we chose Bothell address instead.
We are in the 98012 area. Lots of parks, bike lanes, sidewalks, beautiful and clean planned communities. Worth paying the extra fees to see the upkeep around the area and not just our neighborhoods. School is awesome 10/10 ratings.
Close to Lynnwood, Woodinville, Kirkland. I love it and plan to be here for as long as I can!
