I love my small town! Lately they've made a lot of improvements with their parks, roads, and downtown shops. Even though they don't have many grocery stores, the nearby town is ten minutes away and very easy to drive to. I enjoy walking my dog and running on the Rails To Trails path, and there's a nice wide sidewalk alongside highway 20 that I typically use. The weather is moderate, but is typically more cloudy than the neighboring towns.

Sedro as its refferd to by majority of us Locals, ;) Our children have only moved once in theyre lives and that was for one entire year when we moved to another small town and where they went to school in a place you may have heard of? Its a Town called Ferndale its in Wa. also which by the way, its just Sedro Woolley, but further North, Towards Canda Lol. Anyways we moved back cause.....well it wasnt Sedro Woolley. I Highley Reccomend that we live here, and you can live some where else. Do Not Move To Sedro Woolley you’ll just hate it here, cause its not for you. ;) Just Kidding. Small Towns, Low Crime Rates, Fair Rent Prices most of the time! And the Lazy Leisure Days of Porch Swings and Logger Rodeo’s are something you can find in Sedro Woolley but thats for us, not you. So just visit Hals Drive In, get some Frys and Tartar Suace and Carry on after your meal, to the next town 100 miles over or so. I heard Winthrops pretty Nice, go there, im sure you’ll Love It. ;)
It is beautiful town, but not a lot to do. The commute time with where I live is at least 30 minutes no matter where I want to go which can be a pro or con depending on the person. As a 20 something I wouldn't recommend but if you are older and want a place to relax and not be bothered it's a good town.
