North American Van Lines: The Best of Kent Moving Companies

Located just south of Seattle in the coastal paradise of the Pacific Northwest, Kent is the perfect place to call home. Although it is a smaller city of nearly 123,000 residents, according to a 2012 U.S. Census estimate, the city is close to a major metropolis. This gives you all the comforts of small-town living with ample opportunities for big-city amenities.

The word is out on Kent, according to population statistics from City-Data. From 2000 to 2012, the city's population rose by a staggering 54.7 percent, showing that many residents are wanting to make Kent their new home. It could be because Kent boasts the beautiful Lake Meridian and views of Mount Rainier and the Olympic Mountains, a reasonable cost of living, diverse community or impressive public school system.

Kent also has a strong local economy, as it is home to more than 4,500 businesses and equipped with the fourth-largest manufacturing and distribution center in the U.S.

Activities and attractions in Kent

One of the most impressive venues in Kent is the Great Wall Shopping Mall, an expansive Asian market than stretches around 9 acres. The mall is the place to seek out hard-to-find Asian ingredients and products, and draws in many customers from all over the Seattle area due to the fresh seafood, fantastic incense and exotic flavors and aromas.

The Kent Station is another community hot spot with a pedestrian-friendly vibe that boasts local, regional and national retailers as well as a 14-screen movie theater. This station is dubbed a "mixed-use urban village" and spans for 470,000 square feet.

There are several community events that take place throughout the year in Kent, including the Summer Concert Series, the Kent International Festival in June, Kent Cornucopia Days in July and the Fourth of July Celebration at Lake Meridian.
