Burien is located just 15-minutes from a major city, with a feel all its own. Safe, friendly and connected are terms that define this unique city.

The beating heart of Burien’s appeal is its Main Street charm, affordability, diversity and inclusivity playing out against a spectacular backdrop of Mount Rainier and the Puget Sound.
