Issaquah is one of Family Circle's Best Towns for Families.
In its current issue, Family Circle highlighted our community for its great schools, abundant family-friendly activities and strong sense of community.
"Surrounded by three large mountains near the tip of Lake Sammamish, this town 17 miles southeast of Seattle is a destination for family-friendly excursions," Family Circle notes in the piece.
Issaquah, nicknamed Trailhead City, is centered within the Issaquah Alps — Cougar, Squak and Tiger mountains — a destination for hikers, paragliders and other outdoors enthusiasts.
The magazine also lauded the achievements of the Issaquah School District and the Issaquah Schools Foundation.
"Issaquah's schools are active and healthy as well," the piece continues. "For the past decade, the Issaquah school district has consistently ranked among the top five in Washington on state assessments."
