Snohomish County's largest city and seat of county government, Everett sits on the shores of Port Gardner Bay, gazing at the majestic Olympic Mountain range and the Puget Sound. Everett was established in 1891 when John D. Rockefeller and other Eastern developers met to plan their "New York City" of the West. Today, many historic buildings line streets which are named for its early developers, Rockefeller, Wetmore, Colby, and Hewitt.
Everett still retains many treasures from its colorful past including the restored Monte Cristo Hotel at the corner of Hoyt and Wall streets. The Monte Cristo provides excellent meeting and conference facilities, but may be best known for the spectacular collection of Pilchuck Glass on permanent display in its beautiful, ornate lobby. The new Schack Art Center on Hoyt Avenue includes a gallery featuring up to 35 local artists, a hot and cold shop for glass art, a kiln forming studio, and a multifunctional space for printmaking, silversmithing, painting, drawing, and mixed media classes. Visitors are welcome to watch glassblowing artists work from a free viewing area, shop the gallery store, or take a half- or full-day class like ‘Beginning Encaustics,’ beginning to advanced felting, and ‘Fused Glass Jewelry.’
Everett has much in the way of family entertainment including over 30 city parks as well as golf, tennis, swimming, hiking and beachcombing. Downtown is bustling with unique shops, many located in colorful historical buildings, and the nearby Everett Mall offers 150 stores, a food court and exhibitor shows all year-round.
The Everett waterfront is home to the second largest marina on the West Coast. You'll also find an authentic 1890s marina marketplace which includes a 4-star waterfront hotel, fine restaurants, and nearby, you'll discover a new micro-brewery and pub as well as a seasonal Farmers Market. The Everett Naval Station, also located near the marina, has become home port for thousands of U.S. Navy personnel and their families who have also been relocated to the area.
