Overview of Seattle

Bitter Lake is a North Seattle neighborhood that is less than one square mile in area and is named for the small lake situated at its north end. Early in the 20th century the once-wooded area was an important source of lumber, but that history has little relevance today.

Nowadays Bitter Lake Seattle is a diverse residential neighborhood that blends nicely with the rest of the city, though some residents complain about crime along the busy Aurora Ave. Bitter Lake maintains most of Seattle's progressive political leanings and is only a few minutes from the waters of Puget Sound.

Bitter Lake Seattle Apartments & Rentals

Sandwiched between Aurora Ave N. and Greenwood Ave N. on the east and west, Bitter Lake is a decent place to rent an apartment. As in most cities, rent prices can vary widely. However, you can expect to pay between $815 (for a one-bedroom) and $2300 (for three bedrooms and two baths) for apartments in Bitter Lake Seattle.

Many of the apartment complexes here offer similar amenities. Generally speaking, you won't have too much trouble finding a place with covered garage parking, an onsite playground for your kids or an in-unit washer and dryer.

Dining & Entertainment in Bitter Lake Seattle

When you're hungry in Seattle, you won't have a hard time finding a meal. Most of the restaurants and eateries in Bitter Lake can be found right on Aurora Ave. Short on time? There are plenty of food trucks and other destinations, such as Taco Time and Jack in the Box, that are perfect for quick eats.

If you want to sit down for a meal on a date or with your family, there are good dine-in options as well. Due to its proximity to the water and the diverse cultural backgrounds of the citizenry, you'll find a lot of seafood and Asian food. Pho Tic Tac and Kiriba Sushi & Grill are good picks.

Pet Friendly Apartments in Bitter Lake Seattle

Pets - especially dogs - are extremely popular. In 2011, the city of Seattle reported having more dogs than children! About one mile east of the north end of the Bitter Lake neighborhood is an off-leash park for dogs and their owners to play.

Just south of N. 105th are dog training and dog watching facilities. The further outside of town you go, the more pet-friendly destinations you'll find.

Commuting From Bitter Lake Seattle

Most public transportation in northwest Washington state is handled at the county level, as opposed to the city or neighborhood level. That means that some of the smaller neighborhoods can be overlooked for convenience. Bitter Lake's options are not terrible, but they're not great either.

Buses run North-South along both Greenwood and Aurora Aves (if you haven't realized it yet, Aurora is sort of the lifeblood of the area). The routes run all day long, but are susceptible to frequent traffic backups.

Many times the best option is simply to bike! With the support of an already existing biking population, Seattle is planning a bike share program scheduled to launch in the Autumn of 2014. Being able to rent a bicycle should simplify urban biking and lessen the burden placed on the public transit system, creating a win-win situation for everyone in the area.

Bitter Lake Seattle Schools & Education

Broadview-Thomson Elementary School (offering pre-K through 8th grade) and Ingraham High School (offering 9th through 12th grade) are available to the students of Bitter Lake. Both are walkable for students, with the absolute longest trip for high school students being about 1.1 miles each way.
