I frequently get asked why I Love Kent. Some people get it, especially those that live here and appreciate the city’s little known treasures, but people not from Kent, Washington have no idea. People from Tacoma and Seattle often can’t imagine what a town like Kent could offer that they don’t have. But Kent, Washington is a special place.
I can’t say why other people love Kent, or what people, places or things are important to them, but I can tell you why I Love Kent…and I’m going to. In 2013, I’m going to post 365 reasons that iLoveKent.net on the iLoveKent Facebook page. I’ll note people, places or things I love about Kent – favorite restaurants, shops, community leaders and volunteers, etc. and I’ll include photos whenever I can. I’ll recap those daily posts here weekly.
Please keep in mind that these are MY reasons for loving Kent. I know that not everyone will agree with my selections; in fact, I hope each Kent fan has his or her own reasons for loving our little ‘burb. I encourage feedback, comments and your reasons for loving Kent.
Kent isn’t perfect, but it has a lot to offer if you know where to look.
Happy New Year!
