Feeling priced out of certain neighborhoods? Our Hot ‘Hoods section highlights up-and-coming neighborhoods that feature cool restaurants, good schools, family-friendly vibes, and more.
This month we feature Burien - a buzzing up-and-comer minutes from downtown with a burgeoning art scene, great restaurants and cafes, and a beautiful (and convenient) transit center.
Here are 4 reasons to consider this 'Hood:
Well-connected to Seattle through a variety of transportation options.
By car or bus, you can get to downtown Seattle via 509 N or 99 N in under 20 minutes. The modern Burien transit center is a great option to forego the traffic headaches.
- It's still affordable.
Average list price of a single family home in Burien is 54% lower than a home in Seattle, with property values in Burien on the rise over the next 3-5 years.
Beautiful parks and family-friendly atmosphere.
Whether you’re looking for waterfront beach access and picnic areas at Seahurst Park, or an in-city experience at Town Square Park adjacent to the Burien Library and City Hall, there’s something for everyone with approximately 24 parks to choose from.
Vibrant town center.
Not only are there parks in the center of town, but the restaurant scene offers up a diverse selection – from tacos at Taqueria La Estacion (10 minute walk from the transit center), yummy Vietnamese food at Tung Kee Mi Gia, and meat pies and puff pastries at the Australian Pie Company’s Burien outpost.
