    The area borders the Puget Sound, one of the great boating locations in the United States, and is close to many recreation areas and entertainment centers. Within the community are large shopping malls, golf courses, restaurants, public swimming pools, many popular walking and jogging trails, and active youth sports organizations. Mukilteo Lighthouse Park offers beach walking, picnic facilities, kite flying, a boat launch and one of the most picturesque lighthouses on the Puget Sound. One of the busiest runs of the famous Washington State Ferries calls on Mukilteo.
