Mukilteo Main Photo

mulkiteo waMukilteo is a scenic waterfront community with stunning views of Possession Sound and the Olympic Mountain range.  The scenery and other quality of life factors led to Mukilteo being highlighted as the 9th best place to live in America by Money Magazine.  

Mukilteo offers convenient access to two State highways – SR 525 and SR 526 – which connect directly to I-5, I-405 and Highway 99. The City is also a regional transportation hub for the State Ferry System, featuring the Mukilteo-Clinton route that has the highest vehicle traffic volume and second highest total ridership (4.1 million annual passengers) in the entire ferry system.  A Sound Transit commuter rail station with trips to Seattle is also in Mukilteo.

In December 2020, the Washington State Ferries opened a new modern Mukilteo Mulitmodal ferry terminal facility a few thousand feet from the previous terminal.    Capitalizing on the State’s public investment, City waterfront revitalization plans feature a vibrant, active waterfront with recreational opportunities offering extensive public access to the water along with additional private investment from shops and restaurants.

Mukilteo has commercial and industrial zoned land for new and expanding businesses.    The City’s high median household income lends itself to disposable household income.

The City creates a regulatory environment where businesses can be entrepreneurs and succeed. City staff is easily accessible to address permitting and other business related needs. Mukilteo does not have a Business and Occupation tax.

Mukilteo is a neighbor to the Everett Boeing plant and home to Travis Industries (the largest, privately-owned wood, pellet and gas stove, insert and fireplace company in America) and to over 20 aeronautics companies, including Electroimpact.
