North Bend is among five communities that make up the Snoqualmie Valley, considered Washington’s gateway to the majestic Cascade mountains.
“I would describe North Bend as a small town where modern, rural, history, community spirit, quirkiness, and the outdoors converge to create one of the most vibrant and unique places to live, work, and play,” said Danna McCall, North Bend’s communications manager. “It’s a place where youthful energy perfectly complements historic charm, proving that these two seemingly opposite elements — youthful and historic — can harmoniously exist.”
To those who’ve visited the stunning region, it’s no surprise that outdoor tourism is one of its biggest industries. This becomes especially evident on summer weekends, when hikers, bikers, kayakers, and other outdoor enthusiasts converge on surrounding trails, forests, and waterways.
“We have multiple outdoor-related businesses located here,” said McCall, “like ProSki and Guide Service, Compass Outdoor Adventures, Progression Cycle, and Singletrack Cycles.”
