City of Everett – June 2014

_
Everett is situated on Port Gardner Bay at the mouth of the Snohomish River between the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges. Nearly 50 miles of freshwater and saltwater shoreline and the second largest marina on the West Coast provide a variety of natural backdrops for film. A working waterfront and remnants of the city’s gritty mill town beginnings remain today. Downtown has a distinctively small town feeling with historic buildings and tree-lined streets. Everett has a variety of neighborhoods- from old, stately homes to modest, working class homes with well-kept, beautiful yards.
