By plane[edit]

  • 3 Paine Field (PAE IATA, also known as Snohomish County Airport) (about 8.5 miles south of Everett). Limited commercial flights are with Alaska Airlines'. Other airlines may follow suit in time as the terminal expands. The terminal, ranked one of the best regional airports in the world, has a rather cozy design with fireplaces and nice chairs and sofas, and waiter service from the restaurants available throughout the terminal (all two gates of it). Everett Transit (Rt #8) provides service to a transit hub at Seaway Transit Center and the downtown Everett Station, where buses to the region can be found. Paine Field (Q838219) on Wikidata Paine Field on Wikipedia

The next nearest airport for more commercial flights with a wider array of airlines is at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA IATA, "Sea-Tac" for short) 45 mi (72 km) south of Everett, which serves much of the greater Seattle Metropolitan area and the Pacific NW.

The next nearest airport is at Bellingham International Airport (BLI IATA) 66 mi (106 km) north of Everett. Alaska Airlines and Allegiant are the only airlines offering flight to/from Bellingham. Options besides taxi/limo or rental car are:

  • Sound Transit Link Light Rail & Rt510. There are a no direct Sound Transit buses from Sea-Tac to Everett. The next closest option would be to take the frequent Link Light Rail from the airport to the International District (tunnel) Station and transfer to the #510 bus up to Everett. The bus stop for the #510 is at 4th Ave & Jackson, opposite side of the (old) Union Station building from the entrance/exit of the International District (tunnel) Station. If going to the airport you can get off the 510 to the last stop at 5th & Jackson and walk across the plaza to the International District (tunnel) Station ).

This will take you to points north of Everett (Bellingham, Bellingham International Airport, Marysville, Mount Vernon, Anacortes and the San Juan Islands Ferry Terminal) and down to SeaTac.

Operates both a shared and private shuttle service between the airport and hotels & residents within the Tacoma-Seattle-Bellevue-Everett corridor and its vicinity. Catch them at the 3rd level of the parking garage. During the morning commute hours (7-10AM), it may not be best to take this transportation if you go to downtown Seattle unless you have a lot of baggage to take care of; the more spacious Link Light Rail trains will get you there for about the same duration or even quicker. Walk-ins are allowed for trips from the airport (shared vans only), reservations necessary for trips to the airport. Downtown from $18.
  • Whidbey-SeaTac Shuttle, +1 360-679-4003, toll-free: +1-877-679-4003. Nearest drop off/pick up point is at the Mulkiteo-Clinton Ferry Terminal as the shuttle/bus makes it way between Sea-Tac, Whidbey Island and Bellingham Airport.

At Paine Field, you can tour Boeing's huge assembly plant where most of their airplanes are built, as well as a few adjacent independent museums. However, if you only have time for one aviation museum on your trip, you might consider skipping this in favor of the Museum of Flight in Seattle's Georgetown, which is much larger and more engaging than the Boeing tour.

  • 1 Boeing Future of Flight & Boeing Tour, 8415 Paine Field Blvd., Mukilteo (I-5 Exit 189, WA Hwy 526 west 4 miles (6.4km), past the huge Boeing building on your right, then at the 4-way stoplight turn Left onto Paine Field Blvd and follow signs for the museum), +1 425-438-8100, toll-free: +1-888-467-4777, fax: +1 425-265-9808, . 8:30AM-5:30PM daily, except for a few holidays.

On the observation deck of the museum, you can watch planes land and take off from the runway, with air traffic control audible on speakers; aircraft are often being tested before delivery to Boeing's customers. As of June 2023, tours of Boeing's assembly are suspended and no date of resumption has been announced. $15 for museum and tour ($8 for 15 years and under); $9 for museum only.

  • Teriyaki Burger Stop, 3517 Rucker Ave East, +1 425-259-4291. Another great, but ugly dive in Everett. Spicy chicken is known locally as "crack chicken" because once you try it you need it on a regular basis. The menu includes burgers, teriyaki, & yakisoba. $8.
  • 1 Bhu-Ping (previously Taste of Thai), 6600 Evergreen Way (just NW of the Madison St intersection, look for the dark green sign), +1 425-405-3783. M–Th 11AM-9PM, F 11AM-10PM, Sa noon-10PM, Su noon-9PM. Everett is loaded with Thai restaurants, and Taste of Thai, the predecessor here, was one of the best. Phu Ping carries that on. Great food at reasonable prices. A local favorite for the lunch specials. The custard and sticky rice desert is a treat found at few Thai restaurants. In the back is a wonderfully well-stocked wine tasting room and store. Entrees about $12.
  • Lanna Thai, 7825 Evergreen Way, Suite B, +1 425-438-3888. Lanna Thai is upscale Thai food. The restaurant, including a full bar is beautifully appointed, and the service is uniformly good. The lunch specials are a good value, but the Pad Thai is cooked ahead and inconsistent. Good, but not great. $10-20.
  • Terezia's European Deli & Bistro, 12926 Mukilteo Speedway, +1 425-513-9846. Terezia's serves meals at four tables along with running a deli counter. Lunch is a rotating menu of three or four Central European dishes - all excellent. The paprika chicken and potato soup are particularly good. $10.
  • The Totem, 4410 Rucker Ave, +1 425-252-3277. Perhaps the only real diner in Everett. The food is good and freshly prepared, with breakfast served all day. Nothing fantastic, but you won't go away hungry and the price is decent. Family owned since the 1950s with a big, cheesy fake totem pole out front. $8-15.
  • Chiang Mai Thai Restaurant, 12926 Mukilteo Speedway, +1 425-423-8569. It's in a strip mall, but the interior is pleasant and inviting. Standard Thai menu, good service, and decent prices. Worth a regular visit if it's closer than Taste of Thai. $8-15.
  • Beijing Garden, 3719 Rucker Ave, +1 425-339-9319. In a town loaded with Chinese restaurants, Beijing Garden stands out as one of the best. Small and cute, with barely adequate parking. A standard Chinese restaurant menu, with very well executed dishes. The hot and sour soup is the best in the area. Lunch specials are a great value at less than $6. $8-15.
  • Major League Pizza (MLP), 2811 Colby Ave St 98201, +1 425-259-5554. Baseball-themed, family-owned, large space with many large wall mounted TVs. Besides their fabulous hand tossed pizza with fresh made, family recipe, pizza. Plenty of room for a large party and it is the favorite pizza of the Everett Silvertips Ice Hockey Team. MLP pizza is also available at two locations in the Xfinity Arena a few blocks away. They use first class products in their foods such as Boar's Head meats. There are Grinders, Calzones, Breadsticks and more. Delivery is available as well.
