Living in a suburb like SeaTac, you get to experience how busy a place can be since it is near an airport. The parks around the area are so beautiful, especially Angle Lake. The community is so diverse that you would see new faces with warm smiles. When moving to SeaTac, there seems to be no uncertainty of safety. When it comes to communities, it is always about safety and diversity and SeaTac has achieved both of the factors. The commute to places is fairly easy. A near by train station to get to Downtown can be about 5-20 minutes away from your home. When you move to Seatac there will someone who will welcome you in, whether if it's your neighbor or if it's a random person doing their daily jog. Not does Seatac have easy commute from point A to B and have a warm community, it's also convenient. Seatac is convenient for multiple reasons, it's close to the: mall, airport, train, bus stations, great restaurants and grocery stores related to your race.

I love the convenience to local schools, highways, malls, grocery stores, airport, light rail, train station, many job opportunities. Love the friendly neighbors.
I moved to SeaTac in May this year, and so far I've liked it a lot. The thing I like the most is the easy access to transportation. I can take the lightrail, which is only a few minutes away, or I can take I-5, which also a few minutes away. Overall I've had a pretty great experience living here.
