"Nice homes on a busy road"

While Elis Ave. South doesn't see the congestion that other main commuter streets see, for the area in Georgetown it occupies, it's probably one of the busiest streets to live on. There are sidewalks, though there is no buffer of trees as on most residential roads between pedestrians and rushing cars. The homes are cute, with trees and flowers. There are many roses planted in front of several homes, though one, in particular, has a wide assortment of rose bushes and, when they're in bloom, it's a burst of beautiful color. This all occurs on the west side of the street, where there is no on-street parking. The east side is home to Boeing Field, which contributes to the noise in the area, with planes taking off and landing. While not as busy as SeaTac International Airport, Boeing Field does get it's share of air traffic. Considering this, housing prices seem a bit on the high side, though the proximity to the interstates and highways, coupled with the 10-minute drive to downtown Seattle may be worth it for many people. The area is mostly residential and borders the industrial district to the north. While there are some fast food establishments and banks, there isn't much in the way of shopping or nightlife.
