Overview of Lakewood

Lakewood, a small city surrounded by miles of picturesque mountains, is a gem in the Puget Sound region. Less than an hour south of Seattle, Lakewood offers the charms of small town life and convenient access to a major urban metropolis. Nestled amid historic treasures and beautiful lakes, Lakewood is a great place to settle down if you and your family are seeking the quintessential Pacific Northwest lifestyle.

Living in Lakewood

Lakewood has a rich history that dates back to the late 1800s. British settlers first inhabited the area in the late 1800's when they built a fur trading post called Fort Nisqually near the banks of the Nisqually River. The city started to develop into the thriving community it is today back in 1951 when the Lakewood Colonial Center, one of the first suburban shopping centers in the United States, opened and subsequently enabled Lakewood to catapult into the modern era.

Today, the city is home to over 58,000 residents, and residents renting apartments here will want to be sure to check out all of the idyllic attractions, including Fort Steilacoom Park, Lakewold Gardens, and Thornewood Castle.

For a relaxing afternoon, head over to Stina’s Cellars?, a winery that offers premium wines at quality prices. Golfers will find Lakewood to be their perfect match, as the city offers a number of courses including the American Lake Veteran Gold Course, the American Lake Veterans Golf Course, and the Tacoma Golf and Country Club, among others.

History buffs will want to explore the Lakewood Historical Society and History Museum, while theater lovers will want to frequent the Lakewood Playhouse, located directly in the town center.

Lakewood offers many sources of public transportation, including Pierce Transit, which provides bus transportation in and around Lakewood and Pierce County, and Sound Transit, which provides bus and rail connections to King County/Seattle.

Apartments in Lakewood-Study

If you're looking to further your education, Lakewood is a great place to do so in a flexible, personalized manner. Clover Park Technical College and Pierce College at Fort Steilacoom are both in the area, and provide students with the options to take classes online, on the weekends or earn career experience or class credit while still enrolled in high school. These schools are known for their programs in massage therapy and early childhood education.

Apartments in Lakewood-Work

Lakewood has a large military presence, as the U.S. Army's Fort Lewis and U.S. McChord Air Force bases are both located nearby and function as some of the largest employers in town. Healthcare is another influential industry here, with institutions like the U.S. Army Madigan Hospital, Franciscan Health System and Multicare Health System topping the list of the area's top places to work.
