Mukilteo Things to Do

    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.

    The Mukilteo Lighthouse Park includes not just the park but a nearby beach and a few more historical buildings in the area. The beach extends beyond the park boundary and is used as a beach combing and general beachfront recreation area.
    The grounds around the lighthouse have some garden areas with labels for the plants growing in them. The park also contains the original light keeper and assistant light keeper’s houses. Both of those buildings were built at the same time as the lighthouse and have a Victorian wood frame style of look.

    The Mukileto Lighthouse has been an upstanding member of its' community since 1905. Representing the beauty of the area, the community has embraced and taken a lot of pride in it.
    The tower is 38 feet (11 m) tall and has a very distinct Victorian style of architecture. It is also made entirely of wood which makes it unique among the majority of lighthouses that are made of concrete brick or stone.
    For its historical importance the Lighthouse was placed on the National Historic Register in 1977 and has been protected for that reason.

Mukilteo Restaurants

    Simply the best pizzas and calzones! This unique restaurant is owned and operated by a Greek family. They give their food that special touch that matches the warm and friendly service Greeks are known for.

    The Mukilteo restaurant is the newest of this family-owned chain that now totals three locations. Inside, the decor is modern and bold but the lights are turned down just low enough to make for an enjoyable evening for any couple.

    We always look forward to a personal visit to our table from the owner and the free tootsie pop on the way out.

    Favorite Dish: The pizza is prepared Greek-style: toppings in the middle underneath a very creamy cheese, all on a thin crust.

    The Mukilteo-Clinton ferry run is one of the busiest ferry runs in the state. It relays the largest number of passengers across its route than any other route in the state. The run connects Whidbey Island with the city of Mukilteo and surrounding cities.
    The run takes about 20 minutes to cross and is managed by the WSDOT (Washington State Department Of Transportation). The cost is $6.00 per car and an additional $3.50 per passenger each way. The ride is short but the views along the way are quite beautiful.

Mukilteo Local Customs

    Mukilteo is filled with public art. The majority of which is themed with lighthouses. I even saw someone with a scaled down model of the lighthouse as their mailbox.
    There is a totem pole near the ferry dock that also has a lighthouse carved as one of its faces. The lighthouse is relished so much by the citizens that the city is even having a festival for it.
    As a celebration of its 100th year of operation, the town is erecting several miniature 6 foot lighthouse statues to be displayed throughout the town. Finding these Statues is something that would make for a good scavenger hunt –how many can you find– as they are located all over the city. Each statue is the same size but unique. They are only scheduled to be displayed until September of 2006 so you may want to check it out soon.
