The Lake area is absolutely gorgeous throughout the year, and it's definitely memorable during the summer. The surrounding area is a little less pleasant, but its still green and refreshing. There's a lot of fun places in Lake Stevens for both Adults and Families, and lots of amazing restaurants. Lots of ethnic restaurants. Although regarding the neighborly acceptance, the Seattle freeze definitely reaches over here. Not many neighbors like to talk to recently moved in folks, so be prepared for that. Otherwise, I'm glad to live here! Now if only we could get rid of that pesky rainy Washington weather!

I love Lake Stevens,Wa because it is quiet, less chaotic and humbling. This special town has a very special ambiance that attracts new residents away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The town has seen a huge growth spurt in the last 5 years, that we are seeing a new influx of new home construction throughtout the area. This growth can be good for the economy. However, is taking away from our small town attitude. The town has tried to stop larger corporations from moving, because of the environmental impact it will have in our area.
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.
