While DuPont’s close proximity to Joint Base Lewis-McChord makes it a convenient choice for military personnel, its recent growth has also been fueled by expanding companies like Intel, State Farm, and a new Amazon fulfillment center moving in. DuPont’s diversity drives its expanding repertoire of restaurants, hotels, and entertainment options. For the days when residents need a bit more variety, nearby Lakewood, Steilacoom, Olympia and Lacey offer quick access to larger stores like Costco, Home Depot, Safeway, and a great selection of restaurants!
When we say that DuPont is an urban town surrounded by nature, we’re not just talking about a couple of parks—DuPont rests alongside the Nisqually River, the Puget Sound, JBLM’s North Fort, the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge and Tolmie State Park. Plus, the town itself and its neighborhoods are filled with walking trails, beautiful parks, and Solo Point Road leads to Sequalitchew Creek trail and beach. Step outside, and the outdoors beckon! (Oh, and by the way: DuPont is also spoiled with two sprawling golf courses with stunning views of the Puget Sound and Mt. Rainier. Just thought we should mention it.)
