Like Los Angeles or San Francisco, Seattle is easily the most well-known city in its region – but that doesn’t mean its adjacent cousins should be overlooked. Satellite cities like Kent offer a less crowded, less expensive alternative to the hub city centers of metropolitan areas, while still providing all the work and entertainment benefits of their famous neighbors after a short commute. Kent, Washington is a perfect example of that.
Here are just a few reasons why you should consider making Kent your next home in the Seattle area:
An Ideal Location With Much to Do, Right Next to Seattle
At just 20 miles south of Seattle, Kent makes an ideal city for anyone working in the general area or just looking to take advantage of all its famous neighbor has to offer. Play tourist for a day and revisit the bustling stalls of Pike Place Market, or spend some time with the creatures of the sea at the Seattle Aquarium. Locally, you’ll find great dining and shopping, from spots like the popular Airways Brewing Tap Room, to the Great Wall Shopping Mall, which offers an expansive selection of Asian goods.
Exciting Local Attractions and Entertainment
Though you can always make a short drive north to Seattle, Kent has plenty of its own highlights to enjoy. Fans of the arts will find a lively local community, vividly on display at the monthly Kent Third Thursday Art Walk where visitors can enjoy live music, food trucks, and the latest openings at the city’s galleries. Those craving a stroll in the sun through rows of fresh produce will be delighted by the Kent Farmers Market, open June through September. Catch the latest music acts at the White River Amphitheatre or enjoy a live show at the Kent-Meridian Performing Arts Centre. Outdoors enthusiasts will also be pleased to find a wide variety of bike trails, lakes, and parks to explore nearby.
