Mukilteo, home to an operating and historic lighthouse, has beautiful views of Possession Sound, Whidbey Island and the Olympic Peninsula. On many days in the summer, breaching orcas can be seen frolicking in Puget Sound to the delight of visitors to Lighthouse Park. Come for the day to visit our appealing restaurants, shops and “Mukilteo Walking Tour.” With ferry access to Whidbey, you can drive or walk on the ferry and spend the day in Clinton and Langley and enjoy a slower pace with rolling farmland.
