Montesano is a safe, friendly, and tight-nit community located near the coast of Washington. It is a beautiful small town; there is even a state park located on the North side of town. The only downfall, in my opinion, is that the members of the community can be closed-minded and quick to judge people and things that they are not used to or that are new to them. Overall it is a great community, some residents just need to learn to be accepting and understanding of others differences.

Montesano is a small town with one street light. Quiet place to live. One main grocery store, Ace Hardware, Mexican, Fish, Italian, and Fish Restaurant's. We have Whitney's dealership and a post office. There are a few places to go camping around Montesano. Most residents call it Monty.
I absolutely love Montesano. Such a great, small town with the most welcoming and loving community. Could not have asked for a better place to grow up in.
