Welcome to the City of Snohomish, where we are committed to both the future, through promoting vitality, and to our past by preserving our character. Our city’s history, location, quality of living, and opportunities for business make it the “Jewel of the Northwest”. It is also widely known as the “Antique Capital of the Northwest.” Snohomish is located in the scenic northwest with easy access to all major interstates (I-5 and I-405) and highways (SR9, SR2, and SR522), close to the Port of Everett, Boeing, and just 32 miles from Seattle.
Snohomish provides our residents and businesses an attractive and inspiring place to live, work and play.
Snohomish is a premier visitor destination for specialty shopping and dining in our vibrant historic downtown retail core. Recreational and adventure activities await at every activity level desired. The city’s Historic District hosts festivals and events throughout the calendar year, attracting thousands of visitors a day with tours of historic homes and gardens, summer festivals featuring family fun, local arts and crafts, parades, and classic car shows, hot air ballooning and sky-diving.
Recreational opportunities are plentiful. They include several parks featuring athletic fields and picnic shelters, access to local rivers and lakes, fishing, boating, and swimming. Miles of local trails in the surrounding scenic valley makes for one of Washington’s best cycling destinations. Avenue D is zoned for commercial and industrial use, and provides a diverse and centralized corridor for Snohomish business development along Bickford Avenue with Snohomish Station, a diversified shopping Center to the north, and the specialty shopping and dining experience in the Historic Business District to the south.
The Visitor Information Center is a great resource for information about community events.
