With the VFR (visiting friends and relatives) season upon us, Issaquah and Sammamish are bracing themselves for the summer influx. While many residents may be heading to foreign shores, the three local hotels will host approximately 13,000 overnight visitors a month from June through September. That’s why we at Issaquah+Sammamish are offering this comprehensive guide to the area. You’ll discover there really is something for everyone in this lush Eden we call home.
The greater Issaquah area has slowly changed from a rural farming and coalmining hamlet to a vibrant community, and it’s easy to take everything around us for granted. The mountains, the waterfalls, the lakes—all create a stunning natural backdrop for the man-made attractions, such as the zoo, the historic downtown area, the wide variety of restaurants and the world-class confections at Boehm’s.
So, leave your LinkedIn page unviewed, avoid those reruns of The Bachelorette and step into the wonder that is our community. Guests new or returning will find these pages the perfect companion for planning trips and enjoying the greater Issaquah area.
For locals, whether you’re entertaining company or just looking for some quality R&R, Issaquah+Sammamish is an indispensable guide to help you enjoy those all too fleeting summer months.
