Sammamish is one of several amazing suburban areas east of Seattle, where the dynamic feel of an urban environment blends well with outstanding recreational opportunities. In Sammamish, the residents are encouraged to become actively involved in the decision-making processes that affect their neighborhoods.  It’s not surprising that CNN Money Magazine added Sammamish to its 2011 short list of best places to live in the United States.

With a recent vote for annexation of the Klahanie region, 60,000 residents now call Sammamish their home. Residents understand why Forbes called it the friendliest town in the nation.  After all, these active residents enjoy five major city parks (with two more in the planning stages), a skate park across from city hall, Lake Sammamish State Park’s waterfront area and hiking trails, and two private golf clubs. You’ll find recreational activities for all ages.

With median home prices of over half a million dollars, Sammamish is a desirable location for those seeking generous lots and spacious single-family homes.  With Lake Sammamish to the west, the Snoqualmie River to the east, and wide-open spaces in between, Sammamish has no problem attracting scenic admirers, actively engaged residents, and recreational enthusiasts.
