Find Your Space in Kent by Bike, Car or on Foot

By Bike: Scenic bike trails for seasoned cyclers and carefree cruisers offer miles of exploration.

By Car: Take a driving tour along Kent’s historic streets and find creative, and sometimes unexpected art. From outdoor murals to modern sculptures, artistic expression is on display. On Foot: Do your winter shopping and enjoy a meal outdoors while feeling warm and cozy thanks to the new Kent Station canopies. These heated tents make dining outside a fun experience.
