Money Magazine recently rated Sammamish the ninth best neighborhood in America, based on the economy, diversity, public education, cost of living, crime rates, and more.
First-time visitors to Sammamish are usually struck by the beautiful backdrop of green, rolling hills. Spoiler alert: that feeling never goes away. This growing suburb is bordered by Lake Sammamish to the west, Redmond to the north, Issaquah to the south, and the Snoqualmie Valley to the east.
Nestled conveniently between the city and the mountains, this young city offers easy access to Seattle’s tech giants to the west and incredible hiking trails to the east. The lifestyle: It is rare to find a city that cares this much about its communities, but that’s what makes Sammamish so special.
People who are attracted to this growing city are the kind who don’t pay attention to the weather -- they swim, bike, and hike regardless of the season.
