If you are looking small town charm with access to big city fun then Stanwood is what you've been looking for. Located an hour North of Seattle, and an hour South of Bellingham, nestled right in the middle is this cute, quaint town. Small shops, art, food and so much more will have you busy and happy for hours. Its worth the drive!

Stanwood has a friendly atmosphere. It's a great place to live as there are many activities for families. You can find anything you need as there are many shopping areas, an outdoor farmers market, great restaurants, places to stay, indoor and outdoor activities. It is close to the water and right next to Camano Island. Everything is close by and easily accessible. The school district is rated one of the best in Washington. Stanwood is also a farming community and support for local farmers and what they produce is promoted. Kids activities are encouraged and there are many contests and activities geared for children of all ages.
I love the "small town" feel. The scenery is beautiful and diverse: forests, Puget Sound, Camano Island, the Olympic Mountains, farm land, and the Stillaguamish River.
