PuyallupEXPLORE THE CITY OF GENEROUS PEOPLE
The City of Puyallup is situated at the foot of scenic Mount Rainier in the beautiful Puget Sound region 10 miles east of Tacoma and approximately 35 miles south of Seattle. It’s an easy commute on Sound Transit’s Sounder train to Tacoma, Seattle and many cities in between.
In its early years, Puyallup was known for its hops, berries and flowers. Today many events, such as the Washington State Fair, the Daffodil Festival and Parade, and the Puyallup Farmers Market pay tribute to the city’s agricultural past. But there’s much more happening in Puyallup than meets the eye. Two regional retail centers in downtown and South Hill offer a variety of shopping and dining opportunities. Great parks, excellent K-12 schools, and a modern regional medical center are some of the amenities appreciated by residents and visitors alike.
