My husband and I will be in Mukilteo next week for a few days. What are good things to do or go see. I may not have a car during the days.. what is close to ferry area?
I really like the Kirkland area. Go up north to bellingham and drive back south on the Chuckanut Drive, it is beautiful.
The only thing close to the ferry area is the park right next door with a nice lighthouse. The town really isn't within walking distance. How come you picked Mukilteo?
Mukilteo is beautiful. Small town. There is the park with room to picknic and fly kites. Walking the beach is nice, if it's not to cold wadeing in the waves are fun. Peaple watching in abundance. There is the light house tour. There is a wonderful little store that has great icecream cones. Try the fish & chips at the out door Ivers sesfood counter, or enjoy a nice meal in the restaurant with a great view of the water and the ferry's. Ride the ferry you may see a whale or seal, on clear days the Olympic and Cascade Mountians are spectacular. The little town of Clinton on the other side has nice sandy beaches, and a few shops to explore. The ferry ride after dark is wonderful, you can see all the light of the cities for many miles! Back in Mukilteo there are coffee shops that pride themselves on quality and presentation - specialty roasting companies. There are several shops to explore fishing docks, scuba diving and more. Enjoy.
