I love Enumclaw! Growing up in a small town has made me enjoy and love every little thing in this town. The people are amazing and the friendships you build are unique. Whenever you see someone at a store or gas station you most likely know them or they know your parents, you get called by your last name all the time, and downtown feels magical at night. One thing that I wish Enumclaw wouldn't do is build more houses. Enumclaw is a beautiful country town. Driving past all the fields at sunset and seeing cows, horses, goats in the pastures make you love this town even more. Building more houses takes away this feeling and takes away the fields.

My wife and I were a little worried when we first moved here; that the commute might be tough. We have come to find that it's really not too bad.
This is a quaint and charming city with friendly faces and thoughtful hearts. It provides that rural setting and appeal, with a gentle brush stroke of urban culture. And, it's as short drive to the big city.
A great place to live and raise a family!
Born and raised here! Just growing too quickly and losing the small town feel that it used to have! Very safe, nice community to live in. Quieter then most places still, but it is changing rapidly.
