Lynnwood, Washington is, according to the billboard I recently saw there, 20 minutes from everything. Convenientlly located North of Seattle at the Intersection of the I-5 freeway and the I-405 North-South freeway loop around the East side of Lake Washington, it is a great location from which to commute to Everett, Bellevue and Seattle. It has excellent direct bus access into Seattle and will soon be the site of a new metro light rail stop - construction is underway.
There is a lot of shopping and commercial development in Lynnwood. They have a new Costco there at the site of the former Lynnwood High School, Alderwood Mall has recently devleoped and is a tourist attraction (first Nordstrom south of Canada, huge American Girl Doll store) that draws buses of shoppers who stay the weekend for a little retail therapy. There is also Home Depot, Chik-Fil-A, Hobby Lobby, Lowes, and Chipotle. What's not to love? It is also a furniture shopping hub and features many new furniture sales rooms.
Lynnwood does not have a walkable "heart of the city" area. It is mostly commercial and retail. That being said, there are many quiet streets for residents to walk on away from the hussle and bussle, and even a few small pocket parks to take the kids after story time at the library.
