For those wishing to test their luck, the Suquamish Clearwater Casino resort features Vegas style gaming, a show theater, four dining options as well as a waterfront hotel.

One of the most influential leaders of the Northwest, Chief Sealth (for which Seattle is named) lived here and is buried in the Suquamish Memorial Cemetery. The name Suquamish comes from the original main village site along Agate Passage, called “d’suq’wub, which means “place of clear water.”
