No. 40 Mukilteo, WA [Beach, Ferry, Lighthouse]

Mukilteo Lighthouse Park

The small shore line town of Mukilteo is your gateway to Whidbey Island via the Washington State ferry system's Clinton-Mukilteo ferry run. You can board the ferry either on foot or by car. This ferry route is very popular both on the weekends for people taking trips to Whidbey Island and during the week for people living on Whidbey and commuting to work. You can expect delays up to 2 hrs during peak travel times:

Clinton Terminal                                           Mukilteo Terminal
Mon-Fri 5am-9am  4pm-8pm                       Mon-Fri  3pm-7pm
Sat / Sun 7am-6pm                                       Sat / Sun 8am-12pm

To the left of the ferry terminal is Mukilteo State Park. Recently undergone a renovation, this park boasts new playgrounds, new sidewalks and beach front. When the weather is nice hundreds of people flock to the beach to play in the water, fly kites, have BBQs and check out the boats rounding Mukilteo Lighthouse Park.

If your an aviation geek you can start you flying experience by visiting the Heritage Flight Foundation on the west side of the airport or the Flying Heritage Foundation on the east side of the airport.
At the north end of the airport is Boeing's Future of Flight Museum that takes you into the future of aviation. You can also catch the bus to the Boeing Factory tour here as well. All three destinations get you up close and personal to vintage and next generation aircraft.
