Maggie Schauble’s 3 Favorite Things About Lakewood
For those who dream of living in a city with top-notch conveniences and incredible outdoor amenities, Lakewood is a must-see location! The best of both worlds await in this city that’s aptly named—home to several lakes and some of the most beautiful homes in the area, Lakewood is a top choice for homeowners and a destination for many people in the region.
There are a few stand-out things about Lakewood that REALTOR® Maggie Schauble especially wants to point out—read on to learn more about her 3 favorite things:
1. Surrounded by natural beauty.
Lakewood is home to stunning lakes that offer the opportunity for boating, fishing, swimming, and scenic views, and American Lake is especially a local favorite. Lakewood is also home to Lakewold Gardens, a must-visit spot for nature lovers. Home to 900+ rhododendrons, exquisite Japanese maples, and much more, this 10-acre oasis is not to miss. Lakewood is also just south of Chambers Bay in University Place, and is right next door to Steilacoom and all of its incredible views of the Puget Sound.
2. Close to excellent options for commuters.
Lakewood is just north of Joint Base Lewis-McChord, making the city a top choice for those in the military who work at JBLM. Interstate-5 also runs along the southern border of Lakewood, making it easy to head south to Olympia or north toward Seattle. Plus, Tacoma is just north of Lakewood, offering even more convenience, especially for those who may commute.
3. Enjoy excellent amenities and shopping.
The Lakewood Towne Center is just one of the perks of living in Lakewood. This hub of shopping and entertaining features places like a movie theater, Target, Safeway, Bed Bath & Beyond, PetSmart, Ross, Michaels, Famous Footwear, Burlington Coat Factory, 24-Hour Fitness, and much more. Plus, several eateries are in the mix as well, like Applebee’s, Cold Stone, Panda Express, L&L Hawaiian Barbecue, The Ram, Old Country Buffet, and much more! Also, for those who enjoy antique shopping, Maggie recommends The Key Antiques!
