Marysville Washington is a thriving community situated near the banks of the Snohomish River. It hosts a number of fun festivals, notably the Tulalip Pow-Wow and Strawberry Festival. Begun over 60 years ago as a one-day community celebration, the June Strawberry Festival has grown into a ten-day event drawing people from around the Puget Sound region.
Marysville is immediately adjacent to the Tulalip Indian Reservation. At Mission Beach you can view a longhouse, totem poles and canoe sheds used for tribal living and ceremonies. The Tulalip Tribes have recently developed Quil Ceda Village along the I-5 corridor. The Tulalip Casino & Resort is the new premier gaming destination in Snohomish County. This gaming mecca is also a showcase for Northwest art and Tulalip Indian culture. Rushing waterfalls, four fountains and numerous ponds greet visitors. One pond holds an Orca whale sculpture, another has a stunning, 20-foot tall stature of an Indian fisherman about to spear a leaping salmon.
Seattle Premium Outlets in the Tulalip Tribes' Quil Ceda Village and north of the Tulalip Casino is an essential stop on any shopping itinerary. The international, high-end retail open air mall is home to more than 110 outlet stores featuring trendy designed and brand names including Coach, Calvin Klein, Polo Ralph Lauren, Burberry, Kenneth Cole, Dickies, Ann Taylor, J. Crew, Banana Republic and more.
