The best thing about Graham is that it is quiet and has nice lakes for fishing. We are not that far from the mountains in Seattle, which offer more activities. We have the normal fast food restaurants (Starbucks, McDonald's, etc), a few grocery stores, but no shopping malls. It takes about 30 minutes to get to a decent shopping mall.
We have good schools and extracurricular activities for kids including sports and different clubs. I spend a lot of time at the schools volunteering and attending different sporting events. We have a few private school options, but I think Graham school district has a lot to offer.
Living in Graham is great for those that love a peace and quiet. We have nice scenery, close to the ocean and great people. The crime rate is low and I feel very safe here. It is a perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
