Located in the heart of Washington's Puget Sound area, Renton sits aside Lake Washington and is 13 miles south of Seattle. With a population of just under 80,000 people, it is a city with great views and a great lifestyle.
Renton WA has a lovely downtown area that is very walkable. The city has convenient access to Interstate 5 (via I-405) making it a nice option for those that want to commute into Seattle. The Sounder Commuter Rail has a commuter rail system in the city that goes into Seattle, and Amtrak also has service into Seattle from Tukwila Train Depot. Most residents in Renton are dependent on a vehicle, however.
