Great neighborhoods quite..walk to stores or just to work out

My daughter bought her home in Rainier...The rails to trails track is great as are the parks in the area..you can walk to the cookie shop for morning coffee or the local service station which has Chinese and America food...and is like a supermarket...it's 20 minutes to downtown Olympia where most people work ..it's quite kids play outside just a great place to live...if they don't have what you need in Rainer you can drive a few miles to yelm..tenino..or Olympia...it's a great place for younger families with a few older folks
