Des Moines

Can you imagine a clear, summer Saturday morning walking to get coffee and spending some time watching the Puget Sound waves roll in at Redondo Beach? In Des Moines, that could be your weekly routine. Situated just south of the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Des Moines is on the east side of Puget Sound with clear views to Vashon and Maury Island across the water. As one of the least expensive neighborhoods in King County, this seaside town provides everything: fun activities, an arcade, great food from Pacific Northwest favorites, and the MaST Center Aquarium where you can learn about the ecological features of the region. Neighbors love this close-knit community because it’s proximity to the water, between two major cities, and close to one of the busiest airports in the nation.
