Would you like to live in a city with spectacular views of Mount Ranier and the Cascade and Olympic Mountains? What about living in the Green River Valley 18 miles south of Seattle and 18 miles north of Tacoma? If this sounds good to you, then you should rent an apartment in Kent, Washington. If the fabulous location doesn't sell you on a Kent apartment, maybe all the community events, art exhibits and outdoor recreation will.
One of the first things you should do after you move into your apartment in Kent is look up the annual events in the city and mark them on your calendar. You don't want to miss the Fourth of July Splash in Lake Meredian Park, which features a boat parade, live entertainment, pie eating contests, games and more. Also in the summer, you can browse a variety of art and crafts during the Arts at Cornucopia Days, watch outdoor movies in Town Square Plaza and listen to live music during the Summer Concert Series.
In the fall and winter, don't stay cooped up in your apartment when Kent hosts a Halloween Party, a Christmas 5K and 10K race and the Holiday Bazaar, among other events.
When you rent an apartment in Kent, you'll live near one of the best examples of great landscape architecture in the country, the Mill Creek Canyon Earthworks. This public park, with its combination of natural and man-made sculptures at the mouth of Mill Creek Canyon, is itself a true work of art. Step indoors for a while and learn about the history of your new hometown at the Kent Historical Museum. Then, experience a different kind of museum at the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum.
