North Bend, WA is a beautiful place to live and visit. Many hiking trails spread throughout the valley and many within driving range. Snoqualmie River is a blast to float down every summer, and to feel in awe of its waterfall.

Mt. Si is picture perfect for every sunrise and sunset. Whether you hike the mountain or grab a bite to eat at the local Thai restaurant (they have a telescope in one of their booths pointed at Si), you might be able to see mountain goats taking their own day climb.

Lots of great food, shopping located in the outlet mall, farmer's market, and events to satisfy anyone!

Now, months away from my departure to college, I express immense gratitude for growing up here in the Pacific Northwest my whole life. I am surrounded by beautiful forest and get opportunity to view North Bend's personal mountain, from any location in town. A large complaint I have unfortunately, is the price to live here. I hoped that in my future I would be able to give my kids a chance to experience growing up in North Bend too, however with the prices continually raising to exceeding heights I most likely won't be able to financially support my family. The other factor that I find rather disappointing, is the diversity. Currently a senior in High School, the majority of our school is white. This can cause kids my age to sometimes lack appreciation of other cultures and better understand past and present prejudices these minorities experience.
North Bend is a beautiful town with many opportunities for outdoor recreation and community. The mountainous landscape and hometown feel are characteristic of the area, though recent construction is beginning to deter from the overall scenic beauty.
