Welcome to Arlington! Nestled in the trees just north of Seattle and south of the border is our quaint little city. While visiting any new city’s website is one of the best ways to get acquainted, we wanted to share this blog with you to help with more of an insider look at what a day in the life of living in Arlington, WA is like. Where to grab a bite to eat, do your shopping, and get outside are important questions! Read on to find out what’s around.
Drinks & Eats
Say good morning with a cup of joe from Moe’s! There are two locations for you to visit — Moe’s Espresso and Moe’s On Olympic. The Speckled Cow and Autumn’s Coffee Co are also great options, especially if you’re an early bird. For food, Nutty’s Junkyard Grill is a must; their burgers are unmatched and the unique building certainly adds to the charm. Kafé Neo Woodstone Taverna brings us tastes of the Mediterranean on a perfected menu. A bit of spice and traditional Mexican recipes make La Hacienda Arlington more than a nice dinner, it’s one of the best! What’s a Friday without a drink with friends? In the Shadow Brewing is an awesome brewery located in a residential area. Be careful of their hours though, they’re only open on Fridays and the first Saturday of the month. Get your fix of hard cider any day of the week at Elemental Cider Co. Hand-crafted ciders meet exciting flavors that will require repeat visits so you can try them all! When you need something sweet, head to Silver Scoop for a stunning sundae.
Clothes & groceries
Down the street from our community is Safeway and a few minutes further is Grocery Outlet. If you haven’t known the pleasure of Grocery Outlet, your shopping experience is about to be changed forever – their deals are phenomenal! The freshest berries you’ve ever picked are waiting for your hands at Biringer Farm. Like to thrift? The antique stores downtown are sure to be your happy place. Our neighboring city of Marysville, is just a 15-minute drive south and holds plenty of mainstream stores like the Seattle Premium Outlets, Walmart Supercenter, Cabela’s, Fred Meyer, and WinCo — to name just a few.
If walking trails and adventurous afternoons are your thing, you’re in the right place! Not only does the Stillaguamish River run right past town, but there are also plenty of natural areas and local parks to discover. The closest ones worth mentioning include Portage Creek Wildlife Reserve, Country Charm Conservation Area, Gissberg Twin Lakes, and River Meadows County Park. That said, our favorite attractions are the Arlington Lavender Farm and the Outback Kangaroo Farm. Yep, there are kangaroos here – you’re going to love it! Even your dogs will have somewhere to look forward to at the Strawberry Fields Off-Leash Dog Park. Just make sure Fido is friendly before you go.
