Get in[edit]

By car[edit]

  • Highway 2 connects Monroe to the northwest (Cities of Snohomish and Everett) and to the southeast (Cities of Leavenworth, Wenatchee and eventually to Spokane and Idaho) through the beautiful Cascade Mountain range via Steven's Pass. The drive from Snohomish to Monroe is mostly farmland, while the drive east and beyond is mostly forest. Monroe is generally considered the last stop for east-bound travelers, as it has the most options for food, lodging, bathrooms, or gasoline before trekking over the mountain pass and reaching the next big city of Leavenworth (1.5 - 2 hrs of driving).
  • Highway 522 comes from the southwest originating in Woodinville and ending at Highway 2 at the beginning of Monroe's newer retail area.

By bus[edit]

Community Transit runs regional buses from Everett and Seattle via Snohomish.
