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
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!
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!
