Kittitas Reviews

Love the small town and community. Everyone is supportive of each other and helps out when someone needs it. Our law enforcement is amazing and sweet. Always happy to get out of their cars and see the kids and give them stickers. The schools are small and staff is wonderful. Playground is fun with a gazebo for sitting in the shade. We have annual burnouts down Main Street. We have a little library and community hall all wrapped up into one historical building.

Kittitas has little to no crime. The school system is good and the houses are nice. It isn't too expensive to live in the area. However, the closest grocery stores are in Ellensburg, which is roughly a fifteen minute drive away.
