"Welcome to Downtown Edmonds" sign on Edmonds Way

Edmonds is a small, friendly, community about 20 minutes north of Seattle. It has many interesting activities and events year-round, with a strong Arts influence.

The city is located in the southwest corner of Snohomish County, bordered on the south by the King/Snohomish County line and on the west by Puget Sound. Edmonds is the 2nd largest city in Snohomish County, with a population of about 40,500. Founded by Logger George Brackett and incorporated in 1890, it is the oldest city in Snohomish County.

Beautiful views of the Olympic Mountains across Puget Sound can be had from the waterfront. Mt. Baker, almost at the U.S./Canadian border, is frequently visible to the north. Most of the downtown Edmonds waterfront is a public park, so these views are freely accessible to all residents and visitors.
