Issaquah Reviews

Living in Issaquah is like living in a little green corner of the Pacific Northwest. You have the beauty of the Cascade Mountain range to wake up to every morning, and a view of the Puget Sound on a clear day. The local culture of the city feels safe, welcoming, and family-oriented. There are lots of little "hole in the wall" restaurants and bars to enjoy, but there are also parks and trails surrounding you at any moment. If you're looking for a city that has beautiful views, good food, and safe environment, Issaquah is your safest bet!

Issaquah is a nice, quiet area with great schools, neighborhood and people. We have a Microsoft campus that provides lots of jobs to the community, directly and indirectly. I moved here a year ago and really enjoy it. I have access to quality schools, restaurants, doctors, and parks. It's probably the best community I've ever lived in!
Very good place, Good schooling would recommend. There are lots of things to do around town. There is always something to do and eat on front street. You will never get bored in Issaquah!
