So you've decided living in the rural community of Darrington is the lifestyle that's right for you.  First of all welcome home!  Living in a small remote town is unique and can be very rewarding but keep in mind it is a much further drive now to big box stores, shopping malls, movie theaters etc.  We refer to this drive down the river as "going down below", so here is your first bit of Darrington lingo.  Shopping local supports local jobs and a great way to run into friends.  Over the years our community has gotten pretty good at creating their own fun from just exploring the surrounding rivers, driving a scenic forest road, a simple family hike or picnic and enjoying the local events throughout the year.

Perhaps you're retiring and wish to return to a small rural community where people know each other's names and shopping takes a little longer because there will usually be someone you run into that you just want to visit with.  If you want to surround yourself with the natural beauty and the recreational opportunities Darrington has to offer yet want options for eating out and that special coffee shop to meet with friends, Darrington has it!  See what businesses and local services Darrington has to offer including healthcare and our friendly Cascade Senior Center.  A great way to meet your new community is to get involved and Darrington is a "Can Do" community of people volunteering to make great things happen!  It doesn't matter if you don't know anyone yet, get involved and you soon will.  Volunteers are always welcome!

Spending a day on the river is great family fun!
