Renton

GET TO KNOW

Renton

Renton is one of our neighboring cities to the south. Once upon a time, Renton was one of the big boom towns in the Puget Sound region because of the coal industry. Renton also became part of the “boom and bust” cycle of Boeing, which has factories and its HQ located in and around the city. There are many diverse neighborhoods within Renton. Renton is still defining itself as it grows and absorbs new populations. As a whole, it is still very much a commuter town, and in most cases it still requires a car.

Old Renton’s core of retail and dining sets itself apart from the large shopping center, The Landing. Downtown Renton has been going through a planned revitalization in recent years, and there are many cute shops, cafes, restaurants, and local services. One great spot to visit is the Renton Library, which straddles the Cedar River. Here you can look down through its large windows and see the salmon making their way upstream in the autumn. Then go see the fall colors in the adjacent Liberty Park!
