Minutes away from downtown Tacoma and Point Defiance lies the waterfront town of Ruston. Ruston Way waterfront has long been a favorite of locals, featuring a 2 mile stretch of paved walking trails, parks, restaurants, and breathtaking views of South Puget Sound. On a clear day, Mount Rainier is visible to the West and the Olympic Mountains can be spotted to the East.
At the northernmost point of Ruston lies Point Defiance Park, an over 700-acre park – which includes a zoo, aquarium, and a scenic 5-mile drive. Fun fact: Point Defiance Park is the largest city park west of the Mississippi River. One of the newest neighborhoods along the Ruston Way Waterfront is Point Ruston, which features plenty of shopping and dining options, a movie theatre, walking trails, and much more! Simply put, on a beautiful day in Washington, Ruston Way is the place to be!
