My husband has just found a really exciting job prospect for the City of Shoreline. We currently live in Spokane and I'm not too familiar with all the various & sundry suburbs of Seattle. Anyone live there who could give me the bird's eye view? Is it cute and individual, like a Ballard, or is it all houses & strip malls?

I don't know how we'd afford to move there, but it's worth a look...

Shoreline is actually cheaper than living in Seattle proper as far as I know. I have a friend who lives up there.

That being said, I'd have to say that it's not really like Ballard, but I'm not sure I'd classify it as all houses and strip malls either. Somewhere a bit above houses and strip malls?

i used to live near shoreline, it has houses and little strip malls, yeah. a little more affordable to buy a house there, but not by much. real estate is still very expensive in this area. there are a lot of little restaurants that i like to eat at.

nowhere close to being "a ballard" but it's more affordable!

Shoreline is still changing a bit, so there's some rundown stuff around, and there's some nicer areas as well. My grandparents have lived in the same Shoreline Condo for the past 35 years or so (used to be considered a part of Seattle, though), and have seen a lot of new construction in the past 5-ish yrs, so I think it's progressing. I tend to consider Shoreline the cheap residential area of Seattle to the north. There's really nothing that stands out about it, but you're still really close to everything. There is a nice beach there.
