Salmon Creek is a great place to live, lots of available resources, comfortable neighborhoods. The only thing I would change about salmon creek is the future developers. They continue to push their way into what is considered country. This causes the taxes for other towns to increase. Because of that I had to take the stars down to 3.

I enjoy the quiet neighborhoods, its up north out of the way away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There are plenty of parks to walk and enjoy as well.
Its still developing but that is what makes it beautiful, especially if you life directly off the interstate. Easy access to lower Vancouver and Portland this way.
It’s a very nice area. Nice parks and pretty environment. There’s lots of stores and friendly neighborhoods. The school districts are very good and have safe and good schools. It’s not too far away from both Portland or Vancouver which have more entertainment and recreational places to go. Salmon creek is very woodsy and green and a nice place to drive around.
