The Perfect Location for Retirement
A selection of homes near Seattle in the heart of the scenic Puget Sound area
Located halfway between Seattle to the north and Portland to the south, Panorama offers a wide selection of homes and neighborhoods. Spend your retirement enjoying the natural beauty of the glorious Puget Sound area. Within driving distance of Panorama you’ll find Washington’s Pacific Ocean beaches, the majestic Olympic and Cascade Mountains, and the metropolitan areas of Seattle and Tacoma. In nearby Olympia, the state capital, you’ll find a culturally strong community filled with recreational and cultural activities. Our area is consistently rated near the top of national polls recognizing great places to live.
When you live at Panorama, it’s easy to enjoy thriving and abundant live theatre nearby. Catch a play, the Seattle Symphony, world-class opera or rousing musical productions at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Olympia. Evergreen State College, St. Martin’s University and South Puget Sound Community College offer musical performances, classes and lectures that are open to the public. You can even hop on a Panorama bus and join a friend for the ride.
The fabulous farmer's market and Olympia's predominantly Victorian-era downtown attract many shoppers. In central Olympia, you can browse art galleries, intimate shops or quaint bookstores. Inviting coffee shops and bakeries cluster around the town square. Today the Olympia-Lacey area is home to approximately 210,000 people—large enough to sustain the cultural and recreational opportunities you expect in a metropolitan area, yet small enough to retain a friendly atmosphere.
