The vibrant city of Edmonds is located just 15 miles north of Seattle. Easily reachable by Sound Transit, Amtrak, Washington State Ferries, automobile and bicycle, getting to Edmonds is a breeze. Staying is a pleasure. The community’s location along the west-facing shore of Puget Sound provides many amenities, including panoramic views of the Sound and Olympic Mountains, sandy beaches and waterfront parks, as well as a charming, walkable downtown area.
Edmonds has been named the friendliest city in Washington nine years in a row. It could just as easily have been named the most charming and most livable, too. From old-time streetlights bedecked with hanging flower baskets to the promenade around the city fountain, antique shops to fine restaurants, city marina to sandy beaches… Edmonds beckons.
The city offers many amenities and events for the community to enjoy. May brings the Gardening and Waterfront Festivals, June the Edmonds Arts Festival, and August the Taste of Edmonds. A Farmer’s Market takes place all summer long. Come fall, the Cascade Symphony, Olympic Ballet, and Driftwood and Edge of the World theaters begin their seasons. Visit the Calendar of Events for year-round event details.
It’s easy to spend a full day in downtown Edmonds and still want more. From arts and culture, downtown shopping, festivals and farmers markets, to waterfront fun, you’ll want to stay awhile.
