Downtown Edmonds Elder Resources

Edmonds is an ideal place to not only grow up (however you define it), but also to grow older: The soothing water views, the access to the big city, the great food, the relatively easy parking, and the art and entertainment make it so we never want to leave.  

Plus, getting older in Edmonds has a ton of benefits: free coffee at many of the cafes, more time to watch the ferry, and great prices on shows are just a few. Whether you’re planning to retire in Edmonds or just moved in, our city dwellers of a certain age and stage can expect to be taken care of exceedingly well, especially Downtown. Stick with us as we go through some of the fantastic resources available to Edmonds elders. 

And, pssst, many of the things we’re about to mention are helpful for people of all ages. Whether you have an AARP card or not, keep reading.
