Renton is boring, like its largest employer: Boeing. The city is near famous ones like Seattle and Redmond. The housing prices are cheaper than the latter two, but the commute is horrendous. The best part is the proximity to beautiful hiking spots.

Renton is primarily a quiet city with a quiet downtown. It is easily accessible through public transportation and has sufficient street parking, provided that the farmer’s market is not in session. In summer, there is a farmer’s market beginning at three PM every Tuesday afternoon, complete with fresh produce, local bakeries and businesses, and ready-made food to eat at the market.
