Edmonds is an adorable small town on the edge of the Puget Sound. While the downtown boutiques and restaurants are a bit pricey, they all offer exemplary service and products. The best of Edmonds are the community events (though they aren't being held during COVID), such as farmers markets, music festivals and food fairs! If you want beautiful scenery, head down to the beach parks and sandy shores, or to the ferry headed to the peninsula.

I have been living in Edmonds, Washington for almost 2 years and have enjoyed every moment of this place I call home! Edmonds has a wide variety of activities including Taste of Edmonds, where you visit the downtown area to experience an assortment of foods and local vendors, as well as an Art Walk illustrating all the wonderful talents in our community. There is live music and theatre and there is amazing food near the water at Salt & Iron (my personal favorite). There are upcoming destination locations such as Kelnero cocktail bar and The Market fishmonger & eatery as well as beautiful sunsets on the waters of the Puget Sound. To anyone coming to Washington, I recommend making a trip to downtown Edmonds - share the happiness that it brings just as I do for you.
Edmonds is a great place to live! A perfect balance of population size leads to medium-size neighborhoods and reasonable pricing for everyday goods. Edmonds is a very well-rounded city that is adaptive to almost all types of people. From shopping, sightseeing, physical activity, and nightlife, Edmonds has something for everyone.
