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.
Stanwood is a beautiful, small town with lively businesses as well as an expansive agricultural scene. From the waterfront in the Warm Beach and Lake Goodwin areas to the many housing developments within walking distance to schools, there is a lifestyle for everybody in this small town.
