Everett has a myriad of parks, lakes, trails, etc. There are many outdoor activities like mud races, obstacle courses, corn mazes, etc. Families enjoy settling down here because there are suburban neighborhoods that make for a safe upbringing for their children. Everett is not too urban, but it does share its fair set of problems that urban communities have, regarding gang activity and frequent drug abuse, especially in North Everett. Everett is also incredibly diverse, most schools have a high percentage of PoC attending them, so most of them are culturally responsive and support educational equity. Commuting can be difficult in Everett, as there aren't many bus stations around, so it is recommended that you are able to drive yourself around here. Everett is nearby major cities like Lynnwood and Seattle, so Everett is often used as a middle-ground. Overall, I'd say Everett is a lovely place to live in if you enjoy a nice blend of both urban and suburban, plus wonderful scenery!

Western WA in general has an expensive housing market. Everett is no stranger to that but in comparison to other nearby cities it's much more reasonably priced. Downtown is thriving with many restaurants, bars, an A+ children's museum, Funko, library, Schack art center, YMCA, community theater that puts on fantastic performances, the waterfront is growing all the time, plenty of parks & nature nearby.

Local open air fruit markets and farmer's market are great to visit. Plenty of diversity affording ethnic shopping experiences as well as traditional. Throughout the year there are many opportunities for community engagement, festivals, outdoor events

Major public transit + Amtrak hub as well as new local airport make convenient for commuting & travel in the region & beyond.

Major downfall would a high amount of transience, drug abuse, petty crime- but sadly that's far too common in many cities and small towns and not unique to Everett.

All in all it is a great community.
It's a great place; many things are within 15 minutes' drive! There are some beautiful parks which overlook the waterfront, and beaches perfect for looking through tide pools. If you're willing to drive, Mountain View Highway has a lot of fantastic hikes.
Some parts of Everett tend to be frequented by unsightly people, so it's good to have a local point those out.
Overall, great place to live!
