Just south of downtown Seattle, Tukwila has something for everyone-excellent hotel accommodations, shopping, countless dining options, recreational fun, and some of the most diverse neighborhoods in the United States. Tukwila’s Westfield Southcenter, the Northwest’s largest shopping mall, draws millions of shoppers annually. Local parks, biking and walking trails, a pool, golf course, and community center offer hours of enjoyment. Annual community celebrations include the Backyard Wildlife Festival each May, fireworks on the 4th of July, and the Heritage and Cultural Festival in the fall. Tukwila is proud to be the home of Starfire Sports-the official training facility for the Seattle Sounders FC, the region’s first major league soccer team.
Tukwila also has great transportation options with walkable access to a light rail station, commuter rail station, Amtrak station, and a major bus transit center. The City of Tukwila offers some of the best places to live and work that are only a short drive, train or bus ride to downtown Seattle.
