Snoqualmie is located only 25 miles east of Seattle in the Mountains to Sound Greenway. This small town is best known for Snoqualmie Falls, a spectacular waterfall that cascades 268 feet over granite cliffs, attracting more than 1.5 million visitors each year.
Snoqualmie residents enjoy a high quality of life with excellent city services; more than 30 miles of walking, hiking and biking trails; 38 parks with facilities ranging from playgrounds to athletic fields and event venues; and the Snoqualmie Community Center operated by the Snoqualmie Valley YMCA.
In 2015, Money Magazine ranked Snoqualmie as #5 for “Best Places to Live in America.” This acclaim is in part due to the award winning Snoqualmie Valley School District that serves K-12 students with five elementary schools, two middle schools, one comprehensive high school, and one alternative school. In addition to school sports programs, many Snoqualmie Valley sports organizations offer soccer, little league, volleyball, and more.
Snoqualmie has dining and shopping opportunities, professional services and health care offerings of all types, a local hospital, public safety services, a library, and great neighborhoods such as Historic Snoqualmie, Snoqualmie Ridge, and Kimball Creek Village.
TCP Snoqualmie Ridge, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, hosts the annual Boeing Classic tournament, an official event on the PGA TOUR Champions Tour.
At the other end of town, golfers also enjoy picturesque views at the Mt. Si Golf Course.
Each August, Snoqualmie Railroad Days celebrates the City’s origin as a rail road and logging town. These roots are also explored at the unique Northwest Railway Museum, housed in a restored Victorian Depot. Visitors take train rides from the museum on weekends, April through October.
