County is nestled between the sparkling blue waters of Puget Sound and the rugged, snow-capped peaks of the Cascade Mountains.

We have some of the most spectacularly beautiful scenery in the United States, forest and mountain wildlife sanctuaries, unlimited opportunities for outdoor fun and artistic pursuits, and the best coffee west of Italy. Our economy is thriving thanks in large part to being the home of industry giant Boeing's 747, 767, 777 and 787 Dreamliner assembly plant.
