In 2016, the local industry established a shared vision for a preferred future after work-shopping plausible outcomes of unmanaged tourism. In the preferred future of 2030, Seattle NorthCountry would bustle with regional-scale visitor experiences, powered by local communities that would cross-connect the industry, people and places of our diverse county.

The Snohomish County Destination Alliance (SCDA) established in 2019, provides a no-cost forum for partners with curious minds and passion to take on challenges, leverage new opportunities, and manage a preferred tourism future for the destination.This preferred future could only manifest by thinking about things differently. It would mean finding a way to share resources, plan for growth and create a thriving network of engaged industry partners. It would mean finding a way to work together to collaboratively manage the destination of Snohomish County.
