Kent is part of the Seattle–Tacoma–Bellevue metropolitan area. Its population is 136,588, making it the fourth-largest municipality in greater Seattle and the sixth-largest in Washington state. The city is connected to Seattle, Bellevue, and Tacoma via State Route 167 and Interstate 5, Sounder commuter rail, and commuter buses.
Incorporated in 1890, Kent is the second-oldest incorporated city in King County after Seattle. It is generally divided into three areas: West Hill (mixed residential and commercial along Interstate 5), Valley (primarily industrial and commercial with some medium-density residential; significant parkland along Green River), and East Hill (primarily residential with retail).
Historic downtown Kent and Kent Station, its adjacent entertainment, shopping, and restaurant destination, are must-stops for visitors and residents alike. Pacific Raceways, associated with the City of Kent since the track was first opened in 1960, is just minutes away from the city’s heart, including its hotels, restaurants, and nightlife.
