    Buckley is a beautiful little town near the base of Mount Rainier. It is, in my mind, the ideal place to raise a family. The school's education programs are consistently getting better and there are many things for kids to do that are wholesome and fun for families.

    The small town feeling is the best I have known. Everyone knows and waves at each other. The schools are walking distance with parks and community centers in town.

    Most streets have sidewalks in the residental parts with street lights lining the sides. We also have a trail the length of the town.
