If you’re planning your next adventure in Western Washington then Snoqualmie Valley has it all. Fun for the family, big time adventures, unique museums, great dining, breweries, wineries, dog parks, biking and hiking trails and Snoqualmie Falls.
OnMerit Marketing was selected to design the SnoValley Chamber of Commerce 2020 Visitor, Community and Business Guide. It is the perfect resource to keep nearby for the entire year. Whether you are a long-time resident, new to our communities or a visitor to this beautiful valley, this guide is for you.
The SnoValley encompasses the cities: Fall City, North Bend, Preston, Snoqualmie and Snoqualmie Pass.
The Snoqualmie Valley is defined by the beautiful Cascade Mountains, creeks, and rivers that all flow into the Snoqualmie River. The rich history of the valley originated with receding glaciers that produced distinguished large hard rock mountains, which include Mt Si, Little Si, Rattlesnake Ridge, Mailbox Peak, and many other mountains.
North Bend is headquarters for hiking with over a dozen major trail heads with varying levels of steepness and length, with interesting canyons, thick forests and amazing waterfalls. For the hearty hiker there are amazing views from the top of each peak which surround our valley.
Located just west of downtown Snoqualmie, Snoqualmie Falls is impressively tall at 268 feet and a must-see destination. Over 2 million visitors enjoy the Falls each year. Our valley offers a variety of options for live entertainment almost every night of the week depending on the season, which include live theatre, jazz, folk, rock and blues music, poetry readings and other forms of entertainment including our wildly popular Snoqualmie Casino.
