Apartments for Rent | Search By State | Washington Apartments

The state of Washington is home to nearly 5.9 million people. Known as "The Evergreen State," Washington sees rainfall during much of the year, and as a result is known for lush forested mountains as well as constantly changing weather. The state has a number of mountain ranges, including the Olympics, the Coast Range, the Cascades, the Columbia Plateau, and the Rocky Mountain; naturally, the state is perfectly suited for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy frolicking on the state's countless hiking and biking trails or riding the rapids. Sea kayaking also has a large following in Port Townsend. However, Seattle is the crown jewel in this state's list of cities where you can find apartments; it's the hip home of Starbucks, Microsoft and MySpace, as well as a funky artist community (Fremont) and the iconic-if-cheesy Seattle Needle.
Local favorites? The Seahawks hold their own in the National Football League, the local radio station KEXP plays some of the nation's best alternative music, and Dan Savage, creator of the anti-bullying "It Gets Better" campaign and nationally syndicated advice column, makes his home in Seattle. Finding apartments for rent in Washington can be easy if you look in the state's largest cities, which include Seattle, Spokane, and Tacoma; the state capital, Olympia, is another option. Some of the country's most well-known recording artist stars have come out of this state: Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder pioneered the grunge movement in Seattle; Vedder has at times even been known to go by the pseudonym "Wes C. Addle" (West Seattle). Kurt Cobain, lead singer of Nirvana, the band whose "Smells Like Teen Spirit" redefined the sound of the nineties, was also from near Seattle. The state is home too a number of top-tier colleges including Whitman College in Walla Walla, Whitworth College, the University of Puget Sound, the University of Washington, Gonzaga University, and Seattle Pacific University; finding apartments for rent near these colleges will allow you to delight in the state's rich cultural history and abundant opportunities for enjoying life outdoors.
