Federal Way Overview

Federal Way is about 45 min. - 1 hour from Seattle and about 15-20 minutes to downtown Tacoma. Located near the I-5 freeway and at the western end of Hwy 18 which links the area with cities like auburn/covington/maple valley/Snoqualmie/North Bend and gets you to I-90 (good way to miss traffic if trying to get to I-90 to head over the mountains).

Home to the Commons at Federal Way shopping center(mall and theatres) and lots of other retail options and food options. Also home to the Enchanted Village fun park and Wild Waves water park, near where hwy 18 comes into Federal Way.

There are a couple of nice parks along the pouget sound water front in both Federal Way and the neighboring water areas of N.E. Tacoma. In the center of The city near the mall there is a large outdoor baseball and soccer complex.

Home to the World Headquarters of the Weyerhaeuser Company(forest products) and other companies such as World Vision.

The Bowling alley is being redone into a large bowling & entertainment facility.
