There isn't a great deal really close by, but 5 minutes away there is a restaurant called Massimos. It's really good, right on the salt water. About 10-15 minutes away is Costco, Target, Albertsons, Walgreens, a McDonalds, and a few other places. You know what those are like. There is a good vegetable stand about 5 minutes away, Local Boys, and that's good but expensive.

It is a pretty quiet place. Not to far from Tacoma. Has many different types of people
