Renton Reporter

Renton is a sprawling suburb of 95,000, one of the three main cities on the shores of Lake Washington, along with Seattle and Bellevue. The downtown has seen enormous economic vitalization that includes a transit center and many high-end condominiums. While the largest employer remains Boeing (Home of the 737), Renton has attracted destination retailers like IKEA. Renton is a pleasant mix of old and new homes on and around the southern shore of Lake Washington, with the potential for enormous growth as more areas consider annexation. [1]
