I am coming to Seattle on a ½ year EBT this August and am currently trying to figure out where to live. A housing service will be taking care of rentals, but would like to hear if any of you have some inspiration on which areas are interesting living wise, as I have never been in Seattle myself?
I am looking for something either in a city milieu (not right above the discoteques, but reasonably quiet). Alternatively a quiet place where the location and/or view is worth the drive down-town on an everyday basis.
One final question: How's traffic? I have read some quite alarming statistics - can anyone elaborate?
