Getting Out & About
“Who wouldn’t want to be from the MUK! The sticker says it all. Mukilteo is a quaint community that not many people know about and even fewer who know how to pronounce the name. I happen to think one of the best beaches in Snohomish county is right in the MUK. Our beach features built in fire pits, a fantastic beach side playground, a substantial shelter perfect for parties all year round, boat launch, lighthouse, plus ice cream and fish & chips within walking distance to the beach.” – Jenny Eglian
“I read that Mukilteo in the native language of these parts originally means ‘good place to camp.’ It would be cool to know if that is true or not!” -Aurora Pedrola
“Love love love Big Gulch trail. One minute you’re in the middle of civilization and the next you’re far far away in a place that could be hundreds of miles away. Just a small sign marks the trailhead across from the fire department. I’ve spent many hours breathing, thinking, singing on that trail!!” –Janet Buehler
‘There is also the infamous garden club, historical society, and orchestra. But don’t forget the landmark graveyard. Headstones tell the story of our founder’s lives and untimely deaths including the young from influenza and those that built and called Mukilteo “good camping spot” their permanent home.” –Janet Buehler
