Anchored by Westfield Southcenter, the largest mall in the Pacific Northwest, Tukwila offers many shopping and dining options, and with over 100,000 visitors daily, is one of the premier retail destinations in the Puget Sound region. Great neighborhoods are at the heart of Tukwila. Some of these neighborhoods were founded over 100 years ago and have developed wonderful character while retaining greater affordability than many other communities in the region. Tukwila is home to over 19,000 residents representing a broad range of ethnic diversity. In 2009, the New York Times reported that the Tukwila School District is the most diverse district in the nation. Tukwila’s warm community spirit is reflected everywhere, especially in its celebrations such as the Fourth of July.
Tukwila has many ways to shop, dine and play. Residents and visitors can shop at hundreds of stores, watch and play soccer at the Starfire Sports Complex, golf at Foster Links, walk or bike the miles of trails along the scenic Green River, play at ACME Bowling Billiards & Events, dine at one of over 200 restaurants, explore Air Force One at the world-class Museum of Flight, and skydive at I-Fly. Tukwila is also proud to the home of the Seattle Sounders FC, Washington State’s only major league soccer team.
