Snohomish County, Washington located just 30 minutes up the road from Greater Seattle is a unique treasure trove of diverse opportunity that’s waiting to be discovered. Artfully bordered by the cool waters of Puget Sound, the crisp call of the Cascades and your own curiosity, this wide-open, inviting place can truly make you feel different from the moment you arrive.
Snohomish (sno-HOH’-mish) County is nestled between the sparkling blue waters of Puget Sound and the rugged, snow-capped peaks of the Cascade Mountains. Just 15 miles north of Seattle, 100 miles south of Vancouver, and a short ferry ride away from the San Juan Islands or Olympic Peninsula, Snohomish County is ideally situated for exploring the entire Pacific Northwest.
No trip to Snohomish County is complete without taking the time to discover our great outdoors. A recreational mecca with temperate climate encourages year-round outdoor fun. Whether it’s breathtaking views from the Cascade Mountains, white water rafting on the Skykomish River, leisurely floats to view Bald Eagles or exciting encounters with Orca whales in Port Gardner Bay, there’s exciting outdoor adventure for everyone. Pack your hiking boots and explore the rural walking trails, or try mountain biking in the summer or snow shoeing in the winter, Snohomish County has endless outdoor opportunities all within minutes of first class hotels and B&B’s, or rustic cabins and campgrounds.
Encounter breath-taking views and awe-inspiring innovations. Take your pick from our fleet and take flight in an ultralight, helicopter, glider or hot air balloon. Or free fall if you dare to sky dive.
So whatever you’re up for – whether camping or canoeing, kayaking or casinos, shopping or restaurants, aviation or the arts—we invite you to open up . . . to life, to adventure, and to discovery.
