“Antique shops and charming boutiques mixed in with restaurants and tasting rooms line this charming main street which is usually bustling with pedestrians. Fun activities happen year round: wine walks, zombie walks, trick or treating, Christmas tree lighting -- downtown Snohomish is a must-visit!”

“Great food, great atmosphere in the heart of old downtown. In the summer try dining outside on the covered patio while you gaze out at the Snohomish River.”

“Great seafood! My fav is the crab melt sandwich & crab or shrimp Louie salad. Best outdoor seating on warm weekdays (it's located on busy corner so it can be noisy outside certain times of day).”

“If you're in the mood for a little fancier fare, try The Repp in quaint downtown Snohomish. We've had many delicious meals here. If we're lucky, we score the front window booth where we can watch passers-by. One of the best places to spend Halloween if you want to watch the kids parade by in their costumes!”

Route
“You've got to walk down First Street if you get the chance! The little boutiques and shops take you back in time. There are new shops and old shops filled with antiques! You can find some great items even just to browse through. Top off the day with some live music in one of the taverns along First.”

“The Snohomish County Centennial Trail is a 30-mile-long (48 km) rail trail in Snohomish County, Washington, connecting the cities of Snohomish, Lake Stevens, and Arlington to Skagit County along the corridor of Washington State Route 9. The trail, administered by Snohomish County Parks and Recreation on the former right-of-way of the Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern Railway, comprises a 10-foot-wide (3.0 m) non-motorized trail and a 6-foot-wide (1.8 m) equestrian trail. The first segment of the corridor was opened in 1989, the centennial of the statehood of Washington, and the final segment between Arlington and the Skagit County line was opened in 2013.”
