Hi Mark! thank you. It is really helpful to know where different neighborhoods are positioned. Getting around can really depend on traffic but based on no traffic - Our house is by car 10 min from the airport, 25 from Gig Harbor, 15 from Cap Hill, 10 to Georgetown, 25 to Freemont / Ballard (traffic can really put a bug in this so this trip should be planned because downtown is right in the middle), 15 to the U district....all depending on Traffic. But don't forget about the Old Growth Rain forest on the Olympic Peninsula 4 hour drive but oh so worth it!
