Fort Lewis, Washington: Classic Military Town with Big City Opportunities

Home to Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Fort Lewis, Washington is a classic military town boasting a strong Army and Air Force presence. I love living in Fort Lewis because of its strong commitment to community and its residents. Located a few miles from both Tacoma and Olympia, Fort Lewis is conveniently situated between two major metropolitan areas. The majority of career opportunities revolve around government jobs on the base, however, commuters also enjoy the myriad of options in nearby Tacoma and Olympia.

The best area in Fort Lewis its location near the waters of Puget Sound. Outdoor enthusiasts will delight in the many recreational opportunities on the water, including boating and sailing. Nearby Mt. Rainier offers exceptional hiking and wildlife viewing opportunties. Washington's capital Olympia is a short drive away, providing visitors and residents a chance to learn more about the state's history. Located approximately one hour from Seattle, residents of Fort Lewis enjoy the opportunity to indulge in premier shopping and dining.
