My mom and step dad moved here about 20 years ago. I graduated here and then moved away, only to end up coming right back 3 years later. This town cares about me as I care about it wholeheartedly. I have actually bar tended in this small town since i was 21. I know everyone and they know everything about me. They have watched me grow over these passed 8 years, as I have been with them through tough times and every birthday I swear hahaha. I recently bought a house, so you could say once I find the right guy I am ready to start the next generation in my family here. 5 stars medical lake! Such a perfect town.

I like that Medical Lake is a small town with a small town vibe. The people are friendly and it is not fast paced living like what you would find in a bigger city. The town is growing which is nice but it may lose that small town feel that attracts many people in the first place. It is a great town to live and to visit. The town is close to the bigger city with shopping and nightlife. Medical Lake is not that diverse but it is affordable.
Medical Lake is a great community that, when in times of need, come together to support one another! It is such a tight-knit community that I have lived in my whole life. Great schools & teachers! It is a very safe town for starting a family.
