Whether you're a thrill seeker or a history buff, the picturesque town of Mukilteo is a must visit.
Situated at the tip of a peninsula west of Everett and north of Seattle, Mukilteo has water and mountain views in every direction and an impressive array of entertaining activities to keep you busy for a weekend.
Strolling the sand and driftwood-covered beaches of Mukilteo’s Lighthouse Park, then soaking in a stunning sunset from a fire pit or picnic shelter along the shoreline is a pleasant way to spend a day. The waterfront also provides opportunities for paddle boarding, scuba diving, fishing, or crabbing, and visitors can watch or board the Mukilteo-Clinton Ferry from here. Nearby restaurants can provide food for a picnic, an ice cream snack, a sit-down meal, and there’s even a brewpub just outside the park.For those that would rather hike than stroll, Japanese Gulch, named for the immigrant mill workers who once lived there, has a series of hiking and mountain bike trails that travel into the wooded hills above.There are other ways to enjoy the outdoors in Mukilteo, like teeing-off at Harbour Pointe Golf Club, an 18-hole course with exquisite views, or taking classes or playing a game at Harbour Pointe Badminton Club. Thrill-seekers might prefer a visit to the brand new High Trek Adventures at Paine field, where they can tackle the ropes obstacle or the treetop zipline.
History buffs will enjoy touring the Victorian-style Mukilteo Lighthouse, which has guided ships for over 100 years and features striking views across the water from its light deck. Many of Mukilteo’s first citizens were put to rest in the Pioneer Cemetery, and its location on a bluff overlooking Puget Sound makes it a serenely beautiful place to reflect upon Mukilteo’s past.
The four aerospace museums surrounding Mukilteo are sure to entertain aviation enthusiasts of any age. The Future of Flight Aviation Center and Boeing Everett Plant Tour showcases past, present, and future air travel and features a simulator that mimics supersonic flight. The Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum houses Paul Allen’s private collection of WWII aircraft and tanks, as well as the new interactive exhibit “Why War: The Causes of Conflict.” The Historic Flight Foundation displays a restored and flightworthy collection of aircraft produced in the period between Lindbergh’s solo crossing of the Atlantic (1927) and the Boeing 707’s first test flight (1957). The Museum of Flight Restoration Center and Reserve Collection allows visitors to witness vintage aircraft being restored.
