About Federal Way

Federal Way is located 25 minutes south of downtown Seattle and 15 minutes north of Tacoma.  It is located 10 minutes from the region’s international airport and along Interstate 5 –serving the Pacific Coast states from Canada to Mexico. Due to Federal Way’s location, it offers an unparalleled quality of life.  It is nestled between two mountain ranges, the Cascades to the east with the majestic Mt. Rainer looming over the city and the Olympic Range to the west.  Federal Way hugs the shoreline of the picturesque Puget Sound inlet offering amazing sunsets and views.

Federal Way Tourism

The City of Federal Way, through a Lodging Tax, raises funds to enhance tourism. The City Council appoints a seven member Lodging Tax Advisory Committee (LTAC), which is comprised of three members from the hotel/motel sector and three members that represent tourism venues or attractions in the city. The Committee is chaired by a member of the City Council. The LTAC members are charged with advising on the best use of the revenues from the Lodging Tax to fund programs and activities that encourage tourism in Federal Way.

Tourism is big business in Federal Way!
