Overview of Shoreline

Named the Best Neighborhood twice by Seattle magazine, Shoreline is both a beautiful and hospitable community located just north of Seattle. More than 50,000 residents call this seaside community home, yet there are plenty of Shoreline apartments for rent that beckon all  prospective renters.

Living in Shoreline, WA

Shoreline was heralded in its early days for its wild cranberries. Although rural agricultural developments were the most common for Shoreline during the 20th century, the city remained well-connected to nearby Seattle due to the Richmond Beach railroad stop, which was built in 1891. While development stood largely at a halt in the area during The Great Depression and World War II, Shoreline resumed its growth after a number of new housing developments were built in the late 1940s. The area first began to go by its current name of Shoreline in 1944, when the local school district decided to use the name. Although the name stuck, the city of Shoreline wasn't incorporated until 1995.

Today, Shoreline is one of Washington State's 20 largest cities, yet the small city still provides a slower pace of life than the nearby metropolises of Tacoma and Seattle.

Shoreline Work and Study

Shoreline Community College is an institute of higher education in the city, yet Shoreline is minutes from a number of educational opportunities in the area. The main campus of the University of Washington, just 11 miles south in Seattle, offers local students an education in fields such as atmospheric science, aeronautical engineering and medicine. Seattle University and Seattle Pacific University are also located nearby. The two private universities are both ranked high in terms of educational excellence. Both universities are also located in young, vibrant neighborhoods of the city, and thus provide a prime opportunity for students to experience city life during the day while allowing them to escape to a quieter way of life in Shoreline after classes.

Shoreline is home to companies and corporations in a variety of fields, providing residents with local employment options that allow for a short commute. Jobs in education, health and social services make up the bulk of employment options, while administrative and science-related job opportunities also abound, making Shoreline apartments a good option for just about anyone.

Rentals in Shoreline, WA and Cost of Living

Shoreline's dynamic quality means residents can expect to pay a premium for their lifestyle. Median gross rent in 2009 was $1,015, making it one of the more expensive places to live in the region. Similar to the rest of the Puget Sound region, Shoreline's cost of living index is slightly more than 13 points above the national average, according to City-Data.

Shoreline Attractions and Special Events

Shoreline attractions are a blend of new and old that are downright charming, thanks in part by modernizing in some areas while still retaining its roots in others. The Crest Cinema Center is a  Landmark Theater mainstay in Shoreline that has been in operation since its opening in 1949. With four screens available, local residents and visitors alike enjoy the movie ticket prices, which have been offered at a permanent discount since the late 1980s.

Although Shoreline is home to a number of different parks and outdoor facilities, there are a few that stand out from the pack. Mountain biking fans adore Darnell Park's lovely mountain biking paths, which are heralded as some of the finest places to ride in the Puget Sound. Northcrest Park is a major hit with families, as the multiple playgrounds and open areas provide spots to picnic or play outside for the day.
