Brier is a cute, quiet city. We have a couple parks, restaurants and a convenience store and everyone is very nice. Overall a really nice place to grow up.

I have lived here my entire life, in fact I live in the same house that I grew up in and have never moved. Brier is a small community with a relaxing vibe, yet larger cities like Seattle are very accessible. I can be downtown in twenty minutes on average.

We have growing businesses and an expanding local college campus, where I attend school- UW Bothell. This is a great place to live. I love everything about it.
I really liked the tight community that they have, they also had a lot of events that all ages could attend.
