Which city in Washington has the best mountain view(s)?
I was born, raised and have spent the majority of my adult life in Jacksonville, FL and I want a change of scenery. I'm sick and tired of looking out my window and seeing nothing but trees and sky. I want a view. I'm considering relocating my family near one of the major cities in Washington. Obviously, the scenery isn't my primary concern, but could be the difference maker if I'm undecided. If you have any information regarding local jobs/careers, schools, family activities, traffic, pollution... basically the quality of life in any particular city, please feel free to share. Also, if you have spent time both in Washington and on the east coast I would appreciate any input regarding the biggest differences culturally. Thanks.

Almost every city in puget sound is close enough to some park or outdoor activities. Traffic is pretty bad all the way up and down I-5. Pollution is not really an issue from what I can tell (not...

You might want to consider a smaller town. I live in an apartment up a mountain on the Olympic Peninsula. My view is of the forest, but as I drive into town, I get many beautiful breath taking mountain and ocean views. Cost of living is less than the larger places like Seattle and the schools are less crowded here... More
