Known for its iconic lighthouse, beautiful parks and beaches, and abundant trails, Mukilteo offers visitors endless ways to the enjoy the outdoors that the Pacific Northwest is famous for.

Explore Lighthouse Park, picnic with a view, take a new trail, soak in the sunset, scuba dive, fish, mountain bike, have a bonfire, beach comb, kayak, watch the ferry (trust us, it's a thing), or perhaps spot a whale or sea lion.


The historic 1906 Mukilteo Light Station and Lighthouse Park are a must-see for visitors.

One of the few wooden lighthouses in the Pacific Northwest, the Mukilteo Light Station includes an operational lighthouse with a fixed Fresnel lens and a modern fog signal which helps boaters navigate during bad weather. It is available for touring and special events. For more information visit the Mukilteo Historical Society's website.

Lighthouse Park offers many amenities including an accessible beach, sheltered picnic area, parking, restrooms, playground, and boat launch. There are six fire pits located along the beach at the park and are used on a first come, first served basis. Please bring your own firewood. Visit the City of Mukilteo’s website for more information.
