Kent is close to I-5, 167, hwy-405, hwy18 etc.
It borders renton and Tukwila so you are very close to the very large SouthCenter shopping area as well as stores like Ikea just down the hill from the hospital on the renton/kent border area.
Close to the Emerald Downs Racetrack(horses) in Auburn and within about 1/2 hour of the Snoqualmie valley or Tacoma areas. approx 45 min- 1 hour drive to Seattle(traffic?).
