Bothell Reviews

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!
Review Bothell
Living in Bothell is incredible. The people are all supportive, and in times of need come together as one community for a cause. In the past year we have had major business fires, and some other situations that caused distress within the community, and we came together as a support system to help each other out whenever we could. The school district is very good, one of the best in the state, we are a upper middle class area, and have more money to make our schools better. We are a growing community thats quickly growing beyond our limits which is incredible to see how much people want to live here. I started going to school here by chance, and I am so glad I did because otherwise I would never have had some of the most incredible opportunities that I did by going to Grades K-12 in the Northshore School District. I have plans to build my own family here one day, because I wouldn't want my children to grow up anywhere else!
I love living in Bothell. It is very close to many locations I frequently visit such as Seattle, Lynnwood, Woodenville, Mill Creek and Monroe. There are many trails, and parks which are well maintain and I enjoy visiting. The Landing is my favorite spot in Bothell. It has a beautiful trail, bridge, gazebo, amphitheater and historical sights. When I think of things that could change nothing comes to mind. I love living in Bothell!
