Longview WA Real Estate
Longview, WA is a relatively new community. It was designed in the early part of the century and incorporated in 1924. It was originally developed as a milling and logging city, and the entire town was preconceived down to the last street even before construction began. Today Longview is the most populous city in Cowlitz County with nearly 38,000. Residents have access to year-round recreational opportunities and abundant rural beauty. Ideally located between Portland, OR and Seattle, WA, Longview offers a small town feel with proximity to big-city amenities.
Living in Longview, WA
Sitting alongside the Columbia River, Longview has a lot to offer when it comes to the great outdoors. The “city’s crown jewel” of Sacajawea State Park provides boating, fishing, and picnicking areas. There are also 3.5 miles of trails that meander under landscaped bridges, around fountains, and alongside a Japanese Garden.
In addition to the Lake, there are multiple parks and playgrounds for children to play, and the elementary, middle, and high schools are highly rated. With a library, a golf course, historic walking tours, and annual local events such at their “Go Fourth” 4th of July celebration, Longview has a lot to offer. The city’s famous “squirrel bridges” is just another example of what makes this century-old lumber town unexpectedly unique.
