Approximately 40 percent of the state's population is located within a 40-mile radius of Issaquah. The community is surrounded by the Issaquah Alps (Cougar Mountain, Squak Mountain and Tiger Mountain). 

Issaquah enjoys moderate Northwest climate, with daytime summer temperatures in the 70’s and winter temperatures in the 40’s, with an average of 8 snow days. As strange as it may sound, it rains more in Miami and New Orleans than in Issaquah.


Issaquah offers a picturesque setting, good schools, low crime rates and a small-town character that make it a desirable place for many to call home. We have grown from predominately single-family bedroom community to one that offers a variety of housing types, amenities, educational, and other services that contribute to a livable community.
