Interesting Places To Visit:

The Historic Flight Foundation is an aviation museum at Paine Field. The museum collects, restores, and even flies historic aircraft in its collection. The airplanes range from the period of Charles Lindbergh’s flight across Atlantic in 1927 and the first commercial 1957 flight of the Boeing 707 to a time when fairly simple wood and fabric biplanes evolved into powerful commercial jets. The aircraft in the collection represent a steady jump forward in aerospace engineering.


The Boeing Future of Flight is located at the corner of Paine Field in Mulkiteo. Visiting this fascinating aviation museum and education center is the starting point for the Boeing Tour. A tour takes visitors to a part of Boeing’s production facility in Everett, Washington where many models of Boeing planes are built. Visitors can view airplanes in different stages of construction as well as the main assembly building. The museum also includes a 28,000-square-foot gallery with a range of exhibits and displays, a 240-seat theater, souvenir shops, and a café.


Mukilteo Lighthouse Park was created in the 1950s on a filled tideland in order to provide easy access to the beautiful sandy public beach. The park’s main feature is the historic Mukilteo Light Station, which is available for touring and various events. The Mukilteo Light Station was built in 1906 and is one of the only few wooden lighthouses in the Pacific Northwest. The park around the lighthouse has open green space with picnic areas, fire pits, a boat launch, kids’ playgrounds, and the lovely sandy beach.


Big Gulch is a series of trails that offer a great respite from the town of Mukilteo. There are several access points, but the main entrance is just off 92nd Street. From this trailhead, the main trail goes south and then west toward the water. Another trail goes south to the Mukilteo Library and loops around. It makes for a fun run as there are lots of curves on the trail.
