I love my little city. After 23 years of living in Mukilteo, I have completely fallen in love and leaving is always difficult. The beaches are rocky but smell of fresh, salty Pacific Ocean air. Seagulls are in abundance, and one can never go wrong with sampling food from incredible local vendors such as Sabor a Mexico, Z's Burgers, The Red Cup Cafe by the water, and of course: Ivars. Diamond Knot bar is one of my favorite spots, as it sits right next to the Mukilteo Ferry Terminal. They truly have an awesome dive bar experience and are always playing great, alt-rock music. What really makes Mukilteo stand out are the views from the different neighborhoods with stunning outlooks of the Puget Sound, Whidby Island, and the ferries crossing the water each day. The magnificent sunsets on a warm, sunny day are another complementing attribute to this tight-knit suburb of Seattle. Only a 25-30 minute drive to downtown Seattle to visit places like Pikes Place or the 5th Avenue Theatre.

Mukilteo is a beautiful suburban town just north of Seattle, WA. The people are very kind for the most part, but as a teenager it does sometimes get a bit boring, being a small town, and tensions do arise with the larger elderly community from time to time. I have never personally had a problem, but some people I know have. On top of that, the school district is pretty good, but there are issues of inequality and prejudice between the west and east side--there are sadly quite a few elitists here. It has its issue, however, overall Mukilteo is a pretty great place to live.
