Most Expensive Shoreline Neighborhoods
Shoreline is a larger medium-sized coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Washington. With a population of 55,174 people and 11 constituent neighborhoods, Shoreline is the 19th largest community in Washington.
Shoreline home prices are not only among the most expensive in Washington, but Shoreline real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Shoreline is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Shoreline is a city of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Shoreline who work in office and administrative support (13.00%), management occupations (10.69%) and sales jobs (9.13%).
Also of interest is that Shoreline has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Another interesting thing about Shoreline, despite not being a huge city, is that there is a relatively high proportion of people living here who are young, single, and upwardly-mobile professionals. This makes it a good choice for other relocating single professionals. Here, these young singles will find many others like themselves, with opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun.
Shoreline is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.
In Shoreline, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 30.75 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average. One bright side is that local public transit is widely used, so it may be an option to avoid the headache of driving in the heavy traffic by leaving the car at home and taking transit.
Although the majority of commuting trips in the city are by private automobile, Shoreline is somewhat unusual for a city of its size for having a substantial number of people who use public transportation. For a lot of people, the bus helps to get to and from their jobs every morning, which benefits everyone in the Shoreline area by reducing both traffic and air pollution.
The citizens of Shoreline are among the most well-educated in the nation: 43.21% of adults in Shoreline have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree, whereas the average US city has 21.84% holding at least a bachelor's degree.
The per capita income in Shoreline in 2010 was $34,111, which is wealthy relative to Washington and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $136,444 for a family of four. However, Shoreline contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
Shoreline is a very ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Shoreline home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Shoreline residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Important ancestries of people in Shoreline include German, English, Irish, Norwegian, Swedish and Italian.
Shoreline also has a high percentage of its population that was born in another country: 19.66%.
