Mukilteo Washington is one of Snohomish County's best places to live for multiple reasons. It is home to some of the best views in Washington, it offers a vibrant downtown and it just plain fun to visit. The town is home to one some of the states largets ferry commuter and travel destinations and it easy to see why.
Known as a lighthouse community, Mukilteo commemorates its heritage with an annual Light Celebration and this year marked the 100th year of the festival. Keeping true to tradition, it is easy to see why people are so drawn to this area. From the docks a person can see the ferry system at work, view epic views of the Puget Sound and get a first hand glimpse of the clarity in Washington's water.
I recommend anyone to visit Mukilteo and make their first stop at Ivars. They offer a true Washington menu complete with three kinds of chowder, tradition white, red and my favorite, smoked salmon chowder. Being a seafood community, Ivars combines great food with exceptional service with one of a kind views.
After loading up with great food, take some time to walk the beach and play in the park is big enough for dogs to run, people to play football or just toss a frisbee around. Locals love to sit in lawn chairs while having the finishing pole bobbing in the water. Take some time to visit Mukilteo because you won't be disappointed.
