The largest city in East Snohomish County, Monroe offers the wonderful feel of a much smaller, close-knit home town.

Situated in the beautiful Skykomish valley, Monroe is an excellent blend of rural life with urban amenities.

Outdoor activities abound in the area. Winter pleasure includes cross-country and downhill skiing at nearby Stevens Pass and trails for snowmobiles in the Cascade foothills. In the summertime, enjoy fishing, white-water rafting on the Skykomish River, and swimming. On the way to Stevens Pass are trails and campsites with a panorama of waterfalls, streams and mountain lakes. Golfers need not fret with the nine-hole Blue Boy West Golf Course, and the 18 hole Flowing Lake Golf Course nearby.

Evergreen State Fairgrounds including an equestrian center, and Evergreen Speedway. Monroe is just minutes from winter skiing at Stevens Pass Ski Resort, is close to many golf courses, Wallace Falls, Galaxy Theaters and 30 miles from Tulalip Casinos.
