Edmonds is the oldest city in the county, having been founded in 1890. We are located just a few minutes north of Seattle on the shores of Puget Sound. As you drive into town, you are treated to magnificent views of the Olympic Mountains. We are fortunate to have a very active marina within the confines of the Port of Edmonds. And, of course, Edmonds serves as the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula via a Washington State ferry.

A rich history is complemented by our strong interest in the arts. We are proud of the programs and activities spearheaded by our Arts Commission. Likewise we are fortunate to have the acclaimed Edmonds Center for the Arts just steps away from the heart of Downtown Edmonds, while we are pleased that the Olympic Ballet and the Cascade Symphony call Edmonds home. We offer concerts in the parks, the Edmonds Arts Festival, and an annual writers’ conference. Stop in and visit our Historical Museum. And, of course, we are home to such fun events as A Taste of Edmonds and Hot Autumn Nites, our annual classic car show. For active and leisure activities, our Parks & Recreation Department is first class.

A city our age and size seldom has the good fortune to possess a viable, downtown retail business core. Our well-maintained, older buildings are home to many customer-friendly retailers. As you stroll downtown, see if you feel the “sense of place” that we who live here are so lucky to enjoy on a daily basis. After your downtown stroll, continue on to the waterfront and walk the boardwalk from Brackett’s Landing Park to Marina Beach Park.

Our neighborhood retail centers provide additional shopping experiences. And if mall shopping is your thing, you’re a short drive away from Alderwood Mall in Lynnwood. With the advent of commuter rail, Edmonds is only minutes away from Mariners, Seahawks, and Storm games.

Thanks for visiting our web site. We who call Edmonds home love it here. Please take the opportunity to visit us and experience what we have come to call “an Edmonds kind of day.”
