Edmonds is rarely in the headlines. It flies beneath the radar, never venturing into the extremes in cost, politics, excitement or identity. But this 'unremarkableness' is what makes Edmonds special. It is a place where you can live pleasantly and comfortably. Where you can go for a walk in a quiet neighborhood, but not have a long trip to the grocery. You can find a sports team or community group to connect with, and still, not feel like you are lost in a crowd. You can enjoy peace, tranquility and beauty offered by mountains and sea, but also grab a beer after 9 p.m. (as long as you don't get too noisy).

Edmonds is a place of balance. And while that doesn't garner media attention, it does create an environment for thriving.
Edmonds has such a welcoming atmosphere. There are many fun things to do throughout the year! Edmonds is a great town to raise a family or even start your own business. The Edmonds community accepts all people. Thats why I enjoying living in Edmonds.
