Located in Snohomish County, Edmonds is surrounded by spectacular scenery, with breathtaking views of Puget Sound and the rugged, snow-capped peaks of the Cascade Mountains. Ideally situated for exploring the entire Pacific Northwest, Snohomish County is 100 miles south of Vancouver, and a short ferry ride away from the San Juan Islands or Olympic Peninsula.
