Community members are involved in businesses, community events, activities, and the greater good of the city. Many of the bloggers that are centered on these communities support and promote the efforts and caring of their neighbors, which no doubt play into the allure of the North side. Weekly Farmers’ Markets and seasonal street festivals are put on throughout the year support the community; which help to encourage sharing among diversity (both humans and pets!), foster new community programs and encourage growth among these determined and talented residents. Much local and small businesses hail in this area, making “home” a convenient and serviceable area. Surprisingly, these neighborhoods can even promote green and easy commutes!

Neighborhoods in the north have many community groups and programs that encourage alternate commuting means like bike-riding, ride shares, and public transport. Even trips to the Edmonds ferry and Indian Casino fall in close range for long trips and commuters.

Even while the North side places great emphasis on families, the feel & caring of a small community, and outdoor activities; there is so much more to these neighborhoods.

Here, there is entertainment and services available for all kinds of people. Whether you’re looking for a good crafting shop, a small Norwegian bar, or a fun park to play in with your pets, the North side is a place that can’t be beat!
