Snohomish is a quaint historic agriculture based community established in the mid 1800’s. Snohomish originally named Cadyville after one of its founders E. F. Cady, is the oldest city in Snohomish County. Listed on the State and National Registries of Historic Places, Snohomish features many Victorian era historic homes complete with placards identifying the established date and original home owner names. If you decide to take a stroll through the beautiful neighborhoods of these historic homes, we recommend stopping by the Snohomish Visitor’s Center Snohomish Visitor’s Center and requesting a walking tour guide.
Even though Snohomish is near several major metropolitan areas ( Seattle , Bellevue , Everett ) it has a small town friendly “get to know your neighbor” air to it. Downtown Snohomish embodies this sentiment. Shopkeepers and other business owners welcome visitors. Unlike large city malls, It is not uncommon to chat with business owners as you make your way through 1 st street and the neighboring streets. Here you will find fine dining, one of a kind specialty shops including clothing boutiques, home décor, baked goods, tea and coffee shops, and of course antiques .
If you are looking for a little adventure, at nearby at Harvey Air Field, you can take a scenic tour by air or maybe give skydiving a try if you dare. Another great choice for seeing the sights from above is the popular hot air balloon ride .
Spring and summer are the perfect time to take advantage of the many outdoor activities Snohomish has to offer. Choose from golfing, hiking, river rafting, skateboarding, running, biking, horse back riding, and fishing to name a few. The local Centennial Trail is great for walking, running, biking or skating and is very popular especially on a sunny day.
Autumn in Snohomish offers the Festival of Pumpkins . Downtown Snohomish and local farms get in on the fun with Great Pumpkin River Race & Celebration and the Annual Snohomish Pumpkin Hurl & Medieval Fair not to mention the local corn mazes, pumpkin patches, hay rides and more. It’s great fun for everyone.
In the winter, downtown Snohomish gets dressed up for the holidays. Set aside time to do a little Christmas shopping here because you won’t want to miss out on unique gift ideas you won’t find anywhere else. For holiday inspiration, you don’t want to miss the historic home Holiday Parlour Tour in December.
