Issaquah Community Info –
Nestled in the foothills of the Cascades, Issaquah is a community of 36,000 residents conveniently located off the I-90 corridor east of Seattle. Award-winning neighborhoods, one of Washington State’s top school districts, thriving business districts and a growing arts, nightlife and recreation scene make it such an attractive city to live in. The city is home to a Saturday farmers market, live theatre performances and a seasonal ArtWalk. Its nationally recognized salmon hatchery is a site to see. In fact, every October, more than 150,000 people travel to Issaquah for the annual Salmon Days festival.
Centered within the “Issaquah Alps” (Cougar, Squak and Tiger Mountains), the lure of the clean mountain air and beautiful scenery attracts countless outdoor enthusiasts, hikers and even paragliders. Check out this recent Seattle Times article about Snoqualmie Ridge just east of Issaquah.
