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 moved to Lake Stevens a year ago as of October 18th, and I have fallen in love with it! It has a sweet, small town feel to it - with kind hearted people who open doors and smile at you just because - yet it's close to conveniences of the larger cities. Everett is just over HWY 2, with malls close by. In city limits, there's a farmer's market at Carlton Farms, amazing food at Conto's or Hawkeye's, and beer on tap at several locations, like Norm's Market. The beautiful lake has a large park and swimming access for the public. To top it off, it has one of the best school districts in the state!
