I like the community activities. They have a local community magazine that lists the scheduled events nearby, and I've taken advantage of it! Mainly, I enjoy the opportunities to volunteer at local venues.
The schools that my children have been involved with, have incredible faculty members and they were very involved with their students learning process and academic success.
The library has a regular email sent out to inform residents of specific events and lectures being held in the building and the police and fire department are incredibly friendly and informative as well.

Many great teriyaki shops and places to eat Korean beef. Also great nail salons! Overall safe and quiet neighborhoods, which are perfect for young families to grow and raise their children. Schools have low funding, therefore the facilities are often subpar, however the staff are very caring for the most part and prioritize students educational success.
I've lived in Lynnwood, WA for about 6 months now. So far it has been a pleasant experience. My 5-year-old son attends public school here, though it's his first year (kindergarten) I've enjoyed the teachers input on how he is doing and it seems as if they truly enjoy what they do.

Other than that, it is like any other city. There are good parts and there are bad parts. For the most part, I'd say it has been a positive experience so far!
