Arlington, Washington

The City of Arlington, which is only an hour's drive north of Seattle, began as a lumber town more than a hundred years ago. Today, many historical buildings remain which now house quaint shops and restaurants. And a newly designed main street shows off the small town charm of Arlington.

Arlington is the northern gateway to the scenic Mountain Loop Highway. Photo of Whitehorse Mountain, elevation 6,790 ft., courtesy of Snohomish County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
