Mill Creek Reviews

Mill Creek, Washington is a family-friendly, suburban, that is community constantly growing. As someone who has lived in the area for well over 10 years, I believe I'm familiar with the area. There are plenty of food joints relatively close, a business area with start-ups and bigger names such as T-mobile, Boeing, Philips, etc. You'll see a diverse group of people young and old and of different ethnicity. There are multiple schools to choose from elementary to high school that are well known through the community--especially the high schools for their athletics and education opportunities. The night life however is unlike the city and requires a drive of 20-30 minutes (depending on traffic).
