Kent is a suburban community between Seattle and Tacoma. It has a rural feel but has a number of amenities you would find in larger cities. Kent was once known for its Green River Valley farming area. But now it is headquarters for a number of national companies, including REI and Oberto Sausage Company.
Kent ranks high in value when compared to other suburbs of Seattle. Homes are quite affordable here and you are still close to both big cities of Seattle and Tacoma, if you want a dose of more intense urban culture. But you don’t need to leave to see quality venue events, like hockey! The ShoWare Center is home to the Seattle Thunderbirds and hosts numerous other events throughout the year.
