Its very small area, but close to everything you could possible need. The WinCo is about 7 minutes away, the Alderwood mall is about 10min and downtown is about 20 minutes on a good day. They have a transit station fairly close too which is really nice!

The city of Mountlake Terrace can be considered small. There are a lot of small shops and few big shops. Overall, its a small, quiet little town. Most of the shops and businesses are withing walking or biking distance of your house. There's a grocery store, a fire station/police station, a library, a couple small parks and a frisbee golf course, a gymnastics facility, an elementary school which is right next to the recreation center that has a public swimming pool, exercise gym, racket ball courts, an after-school program/playground, and a leash-free wooded dog park. It's a great family friendly area! I love living in this town!
I love my neighborhood! It's a safe area and the people are friendly. It is a great, family-friendly, and safe area to live in.
