Beautiful city, wonderful lush greenery with a very friendly police force. Living in this city has been a great experience, the people are very friendly and the environment is very inviting. Stores are easily accessible and the community is very open and friendly. There are lots of helpful social programs in the neighborhood such as local food banks. The public school system is excellent, the funding provides the schools with ample money to educate your children. Night life is calm and simple but very fun and enjoyable. Finding places to live is easy and affordable, there are lots of homes and apartments for all price ranges. The population is very diverse, filled with every ethnicity and religious types. Public transportation is a breeze, you can get anywhere in the city on the bus.There are sidewalks everywhere in the city so it’s very safe to travel by foot. Living here is a comfortable experience and I recommend the city to anyone looking for a safe and welcoming place to live.

Lynnwood Wahington is a part of the Edmonds school district that has many good schools. There are some great private schools also. Lynnwood Washington also has Edmonds Community College which is great for running start high school students to get some college credits for classes taken free. This college is also great for acquiring retraining in skills to get jobs in the community and surrounding cities like Seattle Washington.
Lynnwood has some nice parks and has an amazing city recreational facility with a wave pool and tube slides going into the pool like at the water parks.
Lynnwood is easily accessible via all major interstates in the area. Interstate 405 and Interstate 5 connect in Lynnwood. Also highway 99, which is a major highway goes right through Lynnwood.
There is a major bus transit station and park and ride in the city. The bus routes are numerous and connect to other bus lines in other cities. There are also rapid transits.
Lynnwood has a lot of resources nearby. We moved here from a rural town, so we appreciate having several grocery stores, malls, parks, govt services all within 10min drive.
We are on the edge of Lynwood that touches Millcreek, so we are in a nicer part of Lynwood.
The traffic is wretched! Depending on what time of day, a grocery store that is 3miles away can become a 20min drive.
