I really enjoy living in mill creek. It's overall pretty calm. I love how grocery stores are close by and convenient. The Mill Creek town center is very nice. Every year we go trick or treating there and the kids get so much candy, it's a safe way to go!

We just moved to Mill Creek and it is a great neighborhood. The Town Center has many good restaurants and shops, and it has a nice walking trail. The only downside is the commute. The only way to get to Mill Creek from I-5 is to go down 164th or 128th, and both of these streets are gridlocked most of the time. It took me 30 minutes to go 2 miles the other day. It makes me hate living in the Seattle area!
Have been a resident past 20 yrs, ready to move asap. It used to be a nice place to live but now the area is terribly overpopulated and overpriced. Roads are already congested and a 350 unit low income development is being built. We never saw crime or homelessness in this area but we sure do now. Panhandlers begging for money at major intersections & grocery store parking lot. Can't go to some parks anymore due to safety reasons & syringes on the ground. Town center area is fun to visit. Schools are pretty good. Sadly whenever there are special events, the crowds & gridlock traffic take the fun out of it.
