Bothell Reviews

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!
I love this city. The public school system in Bothell is top notch, and the athletics for the high school are nationally renowned. Everywhere you look there is great food, and even better coffee (if you like that kind of thing)! It is an overall safe city, with many beautiful parks. It is centrally located; it's about a 20 minute drive to the city and a 15 minute drive to the nearest shopping mall.
