HotelTonight – Kent Washington Hotels
Kent, Washington is located halfway between Seattle and Tacoma, so it's just a short drive to two of the biggest cities in the state. While Kent isn't exactly a small town, it does offer a stronger sense of community than other big cities, and that's exactly why so many people want to live here. Even after a day in Kent, I understood why this city is such a desirable place to live, but I found that it's also a very desirable place to stay when you visit the Pacific Northwest. Since it's close to anything you could want to do in the PNW, from outdoor recreation to big city attractions, Kent was the perfect home base for my recent Pacific Northwest trip. I simply booked my Kent hotel through HotelTonight, and just like that I was ready to explore the beautiful city of Kent, Washington.
Downtown Kent provides so much great dining and shopping that you might not even need to venture into Seattle or Tacoma. This charming downtown area is home to small businesses, locally beloved eateries and a handful of arts and entertainment venues. With beautifully maintained squares and parks and public art installations around every corner, downtown Kent is a delightful little city center.
Sports and Entertainment
Kent locals definitely love their sports and entertainment, and you'll notice if you ever visit Kent. Home to the ShoWare Center, Kent regularly hosts sporting events, such as ice hockey and indoor soccer games. The city also hosts community events like the Kent Farmers Market and the Kent Cornucopia Days, and there are a number of great entertainment venues throughout the city. And if you're just looking for a place to experience the authentic energy of Kent, you should visit Kent Station, the city's major entertainment hub.
It's easy to see why Kent locals are so active when you learn just how many parks and public spaces the city offers. In the city, there are a total of 73 parks and related facilities available to the public, so chances are you will always be near a park when you're in Kent. This is particularly great if you like walking, running or biking for exercise, but it's also great if you want to join in a local sports game or just enjoy a picnic in the Pacific Northwest.
