Living Without a Car

Living without a car in a major American city sounds daunting, however Seattle is one of those wonderful city that makes it so easy to do without an automobile, in a month you will wonder why you ever bothered.

There are condos for every budget and taste, close to urban markets world class shopping, fine dining or great cafes with simple pub fair or ethnic food from around the world.

Walk to work and window shop along the way or stop at one of the millions of Coffee Bars Seattle is famous for. There is a strong sense of community that is unparalleled in most large cities.

People are moving into the city forsaking the suburbs where everything is miles apart, to enjoy coming home from work walking to dinner and catching a movie , a play or going on the famous art walk and never need to step into a car.

Shopping at the famous Pike Place Market is like living in a European city where everything is the freshest available, and you buy from your favorite fish monger or Bakery or Vegetable stand. Pick up an arm load of flowers for next to nothing, they stay fresh because they were picked that morning. What a great way to spend your Saturday Morning, instead of fighting traffic to go to Safeway!

The transit system is easy and buses are free in the core area, you can hop the train and pop down to the International district for dum sum or take the monorail to Seattle Center for any number of festivals.

All of this and you don't have to circle the block looking for a place to park and when you do paying an arm and a leg for the priviledge. You are free ! While others are still looking for the elusive place to park you are seated and drinking a lovely glass of wine.
