I love living in Lake Stevens. Everybody's so neighborly. It is such a beautiful neighborhood and there is so much to do with your family! Such as picking fruit, pumpkin patches, restaurants, playgrounds, and more! We could use a few more things like a movie theater or a bowling alley though.

I moved to Lake Stevens after graduating college. I love having access to a beautiful lake all year round, but the middle school and high school students in this town are very mischievous. The town offers pretty good food, grocery stores, and your basic and essential stores. I like that I do not have to drive more than 15 minutes to get to Everett or Snohomish. Malls and clothing stores are fairly close and the people in Lake Stevens are kind and welcoming. I enjoy the fact that there is a gym in the town, and the one thing I would love to see is a club or group that I could join to make some friends.
I like Lake Stevens, WA - it is a beautiful city in its own world. There are decent restaurants here and in neighboring cities like Everett, Snohomish, and Marysville. It is a horrible city to live in if you have to commute to Seattle. The suburbs - home communities are beautiful. There is no night life in Lake Stevens - you must travel to Seattle, Bellevue, or a casino for fun after 10 pm. The school are above average - I feel that my kids are getting a good education and are safe.
