Moving to Mill Creek, WA

Living in Mill Creek, WA

Mill Creek is a city in the Seattle-Tacoma Metropolitan Area. Located 20 miles east of Seattle and sandwiched between Everett and Redmond, this affluent city appeals to families who love the outdoors but want to have top-notch dining and shopping just a stone’s throw away. In contrast with the dozen parks, creeks, and 23 miles of hiking trails in the region, much of Mill Creek is relatively new development: the downtown area was built between 2001 and 2007, and a second urban village is currently under construction. While you won’t run into many tourists here, Everett, Seattle, and Redmond residents will often visit during the Memorial Day and Veterans Day parades.

What’s the Cost of Living in Mill Creek? 

Mill Creek’s cost of living is 22% higher than the national average, though residents pay less on groceries, restaurants, housing, and utilities than their neighbors in nearby Seattle.

What Are the Best Neighborhoods in Mill Creek?

Mill Creek doesn’t have official neighborhoods. Though it’s a relatively small city at 4.66 square miles, it has grown in recent years by annexing surrounding communities. Sometimes, Mill Creek is divided into the following “neighborhoods”:

  • Murphys Corner
  • Wintermutes Corner
  • The Highlands at Mill Creek
  • Wildflower at Mill Creek
