The beautiful Pacific Northwest setting of DuPont, Wash., has been drawing people for thousands of years, and modern settlement in the area dates back to 1833, with the establishment of a Hudson's Bay Company trading outpost called Fort Nisqually. Today, the small but bustling city of DuPont retains a distinct historical character and a rugged outdoor charm. Residents drawn to the area by Joint Base Lewis-McChord or attracted by the city's convenient location halfway between Tacoma and Washington state capital Olympia can find homes for rent in any price range and enjoy the natural beauty that's made DuPont a landmark for generations.
DuPont is surrounded by natural beauty, and residents will enjoy the outdoor activities at their disposal, whether they're visiting the Puget Sound waterfront, hiking in nearby wilderness areas like the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge or watching for wildlife along Sequalitchew Creek. And, not only are there plenty of drinking and dining opportunities in DuPont itself, but world-class restaurants and entertainment await less than an hour's drive away in Seattle.
