Toying with the idea of taking the boat out for one last weekend this Labor Day? Maybe this will push you over the edge: Seattle just made Redfin's list of Top 10 Best Cities for Boaters.
Even though we just barely made it on the list (#9 out of 10 total), Seattle is there nonetheless based on criteria like: the number of waterfront properties for sale, the longest boating seasons, the most boat vendors and the largest boating communities.
We got beat out by a bunch of cities in the eastern part of the country, but Seattle is the only West Coast city on the list (everyone else is east of Austin). Take that California!
