The city of Everett is the biggest city in Snohomish County, and it is also the Snohomish County seat. Everett is located in the state of Washington’s west coast, a little north of the city of Seattle. Everett’s marinas are the largest on the United States’ west coast, and in the past twenty years multiple navy and other military personnel have been stationed at new bases created because of the city’s strategic location. One of the military’s bigger aircraft carriers, the USS Nimitz, is stationed in the city.
Transportation in the city of Everett consists of a number of public and private options. The freeways connecting Everett to the rest of the region include Interstate 5 and US Highway 2. Everett had a private railway to Seattle for almost thirty years, but that is no longer the case. Instead, Sound Transit provides both bus and rail services to residents today. Amtrak and Greyhound both have limited presences in the city as well.
