A small town nestled in the Sky Valley provides a simple life. Living on the Highway is a bear, but skiing in great! We get to look at the mountains every day!

Sultan is the town I grew up in. It's a small 1A farm town and I enjoyed it. Though it had some issues like kids who party or do drugs it was generally speaking a safe town to grow up in. Some of my favorite memories are in the summer playing with the neighbors, walking around town, and going on hikes nearby. Sultan is the perfect balance of rural. You are only minutes away from beautiful PNW hikes, lakes, falls, and riverfront but if you need a dose of the city Seattle is only a little over an hour away. We have a cute local grocery store called Red Apple but Monroe is only 10 min. away. The Hoot Owl is the place to go for candy and drinks in the summer. Just like any town there are some places where homeless and drugies like to hang out under the bridge and such but with someone it's perfectly safe to walk under the bridge to the water. We have Osprey park with some pretty cool trials and my favorite restaurants in town are McDonalds, Subway, and Ixtapa.
While Sultan used to feel like a safe, well-kept community, the growing population of homeless and drug abusers have made it difficult to enjoy the town like I used to. I do not feel safe going for walks around town or even filling my car with gas at the gas stations. The overwhelming amount of traffic on Hwy 2 makes commuting to and from my hometown a nightmare.
