but at least they have nice driving roads relatively nearby.
On top of no driver's roads, the road surfaces are terrible, traffic is 4th worst in the nation, and if you have a nice or sporty car, you're weird for not being economical. Blah!
Mercer Island loop? High Bridge Road? Ben Howard Road? Snoqualmie/Fall City Road (bunch of back roads around there)?
Those are all less than an hour in fine traffic. I'll admit much closer to me in Mill Creek
