The North Creek Trail runs through Mill Creek and provides the best of both worlds: the peace of nature just outside urban offerings. You can start your day on a paved walk through a quiet wetland preserve and find yourself at the Mill Creek Town Center. The Mill Creek Town Center hosts over 85 stores for shopping, sipping, dinning, and services. It is an example of the saying, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts,” because the feel of it is more than just its numerous shops--it is an experience worth savoring.

After a cup of coffee, a meal, or some shopping, head down the street to Arena Sports. Maybe you want to pick one attraction or maybe you want to try them all. This family entertainment center has something for everyone: bowling, arcade games, laser tag, inflatables, a climbing wall, and more. Perhaps you will finally bowl that perfect game, set a new high score on one of the arcade games, or test out your climbing ability--whatever you decide, the fun is a given.

For dinner and drinks, just take your pick. Get ingredients for a homemade dish from Spouts, an in-store farmers market with an affordable price tag. Back at the Town Center, Claypit Cuisine of India has an all-you-can-eat buffet. Mill Creek is home to a McMenamins, a Portland based restaurant and brew pub with live music and a hip aesthetic. Mix and match in one night or come back to try them all.

Nature, shopping, sports, sips and dining: Mill Creek makes for a day trip that will have you asking for an encore.
