Lynnwood got its name from a Seattle developer. He came up with it by using his wife’s name “Lynne” and “Wood” from Alderwood Manor. Lynnwood is known to be the "hub city" of south Snohomish County because of all the retail shopping. While there are many fun attractions and things to do in Lynnwood, it is not an overly busy metropolis. From outdoor recreation and agricultural tourism to arts and cultural experiences, Lynnwood has something for everyone in the family. It is also home to American Laser Skincare Lynnwood.
