Issaquah is a thriving town located just a 20-minute drive southeast from Seattle. The city has a small, historic downtown surrounded by residential, family-oriented neighborhoods. Issaquah was originally established as a mining and lumber town, but the work opportunities in the city have changed drastically since its official establishment in 1892. Although in relatively close distance to the big city, Issaquah still looks and feels like a small, woodsy town, just with a modern twist.
Because of the small town feel with easy city access, Issaquah is a great place to raise a family. The location provides a way to live in a small, tight-knit community but also have job opportunities at large companies such as Amazon, Boeing, Microsoft, Google, and more.
Issaquah is home to outdoor exploration galore! Residents enjoy boating, wakeboarding, and fishing on Lake Sammamish in the summer, skiing and snowboarding at Snoqualamie Pass in the winter, and year-round hiking and mountain biking on the dozens of Issaquah Alps trails. You can even view the beauty of Issaquah’s surrounding nature from above by parasailing off Issaquah’s Poo Poo Point! Issaquah is a dream town to raise children; it is a safe city full of parks, recreation fields, outdoor adventures, and good schools.
