Snoqualmie’s iconic waterfall is one of Washington’s most popular scenic attractions.

Welcome to Snoqualmie

Master-planned golf community adjacent to a stunning waterfall.

Snoqualmie is a historic logging and mill town located beside the stunning 268-foot Snoqualmie Falls waterfall in King County to the east of Seattle. Snoqualmie’s iconic waterfall is one of Washington’s most popular scenic attractions. The town and its waterfall are also recognizable as the main filming location of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks television series. Employment opportunities here include a growing business park with numerous hi-tech companies and easy access to Seattle via Interstate 90. This sleepy town changed little throughout most of the 20th century until the construction of the master-planned golf club community of Snoqualmie Ridge in 1998. More than 80 percent of Snoqualmie residents live in The Ridge, where housing options include townhouses, condominiums, and spacious single-family homes. To preserve the town’s historic character, all properties at The Ridge are built in traditional bungalow, Craftsman, colonial, cottage, and farmhouse styles. These homes enjoy stunning views over the golf course and surrounding mountains.

Snoqualmie’s historic downtown area on the northside of the Snoqualmie Parkway has a variety of international restaurants, such as South Indian eatery Aahaar, casual Thai restaurant Sno Thai, American-style Infusion Bar & Grill, and cozy Japanese spot Himitsu Teriyaki. South of the parkway you’ll find No Boat Brewing Company for craft beers and Chateau Noelle Vineyards for red and white wine-tasting in an idyllic setting.

The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge is the master-planned community’s centerpiece. This family-friendly private members’ club has a Jack Nicklaus-designed 18-hole golf course with spectacular views of the Cascade Mountains. Other facilities include a six-lane junior Olympic swimming pool, daily fitness classes, regular kids’ night activities, and three upscale dining rooms within its elegant clubhouse. 33-acre Snoqualmie Community Park has grassy lawns and picnic areas, tennis and basketball courts, a playground, and a soccer field. First opened in the 1950s, Northwest Railway Museum is housed in a building built for the local railway station in the 1890s. The museum’s exhibits include railway cars and locomotives that trace the evolution of the local railroad between the 1890s and 1960s. Snoqualmie Falls is undoubtedly the community’s most popular attraction, bringing in around 1.5 million visitors every year.

Snoqualmie operates its own Snoqualmie Valley School District. Top-rated local schools include Timber Ridge and Snoqualmie Elementary schools and Mount Si High School.
