I currently live in Snohomish Washington and it is the biggest little town ever. Filled with cute and quaint stores that will fill anyones hearts with summertime joy. Strolling around first street and peeking my head into all the antique shops or just going for a sunset drive around the farms its some of my favorite summer activities with my friends. During the fall and winter time the whole community is surrounded on the football field or in the gym watching a good high school football or basketball game. The sense of pride is radiating of everyone in the stands while they are repping the red and white. Go panthers!

Fantastic small town! Very interesting and cool. Lots of history between First Street to the historic preserved neighborhoods. Very pretty, lots of outdoorsy activities to do.
I have owned two homes in Snohomish and lived here for a total of 5 years. I moved here in my mid twenties and enjoyed the dive-bar scene. Now I'm in my early thirties and enjoying my quiet neighborhood, the Centennial Trail, lots of local breweries, and the small-town vibe with lots of buzz and high-energy. There is a Farmers Market from May to September, lots of great churches (The Pursuit is awesome!), a great local nursery, wonderful library, and endless fun shops and restaurants downtown. I love living here. I walk everywhere and always feel safe. I would definitely recommend living in Snohomish.
