Issaquah is easily one of the most naturally beautiful cities in Western Washington. Located just 15 miles east of Seattle on the southern end of Lake Sammamish, Issaquah lies in the valley between Tiger and Cougar Mountain. With over 1300 acres of open space, 200+ miles of trails, and dozens of trailheads, it’s no wonder that Issaquah has been nicknamed “Trailhead City.”
Don’t let the natural beauty fool you; Issaquah is anything but rural. Downtown Issaquah is bustling with local businesses and an abundance of amazing restaurants! It also has a booming art and music scene and lovely suburban neighborhoods with more new developments on the horizon. As such, it’s pretty easy to see why Issaquah is often regarded as one of the best places to live in Washington!
