Nice, safe area. Very cozy. As a current resident as well as student, I have sufficient knowledge to say that the area around Edmonds is great for families, especially those with young kids or are planning on having kids. The public schools are above average, with diversity adorning the schools from middle schools to high schools to the community college. There is an abundance of food and restaurants in the area, especially teriyaki and pho places.

Great location with a cute down town! Edmonds is a great locations, only 25-35 minutes from Seattle, a few minutes from Shoreline, Lynwood, Mount Lake Terrace, 99, and I5. It is an up and coming area and because of this you may notice that many of the neighbourhoods are starting to update but have a few stragglers that will hold out until change of ownership.
As an international student, Edmonds is a place which makes me fall in love with Washington state. Edmonds is a safe and family friendly community. The location is very convenient, and it has different outdoor activities for people to enjoy. For instance, Edmonds beach front is a perfect place for people to surf and exercise. Also, the scene is extremely spectacular especially during summer.
