Tourism in Federal Way

Visit Federal Way, where we are “Centered on Visitor Opportunity.”



Federal Way is centrally located in the Seattle metropolitan area along the Puget Sound Inlet and shadowed by majestic Mount Rainier.  While Federal Way is a community of 100,000, nearly one million tourists experience it annually. This is because Federal Way is home to the largest theme park in Washington state - Wild Waves. It is also home to the King County Aquatic Center, one of the nation’s premier facilities where you can enjoy the same pool that Olympic swimmers and divers use to train and compete. 




Visitors can also take in a top performance at the Performing Arts and Event Center or local community theater, Centerstage. Federal Way is also home to lush gardens from the nationally renowned Pacific Bonsai Museum to the global collection of the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden to the seasonal garden of PowellsWood. 






Enjoy the breath taking views of the Olympic Mountain range while strolling along the waterfront of the Puget Sound.  Skimboard on the sandy beaches at Dash Point State Park.  Take in scents from the fir trees combined with the beauty of the native ornamentals that make Federal Way uniquely magnificent. So whether you are here on business, leisure, or bringing the family to a Seahawks, Sounders or Mariners game, you will find everything you are looking for, while being easy on the pocketbook.
