Needing a beach getaway, but don’t want to go far? Saltwater State Park is an 87.4 acres plot of second-growth timber on Puget Sound in the City of Des Moines and has 137-acre camping park featuring 1,445 feet of saltwater shoreline on the Puget Sound and is great for diving, fishing, bird watching, camping and hiking.

Less than 2 miles away are plenty of dining options, Taqueria El Rinconsito - a counter-serve chain serving Mexican specialties like a tasty pollo asado that is so flavorful and tender that the meat falls off the bone; you also can’t beat the price of $5.99! Anthony’s HomePort - premier seafood served with waterfront views, Mandarin Kitchen - Casual restaurant offering Hunan, Sichuan, Mandarin & Cantonese classics plus house specialties, Marina Wood Fired Pizza and Italian Cafe - Chill Italian spot with a retro vibe for wood-fired Neapolitan pies, cocktails & local microbrews, and Wally’s Chowder House - Local seafood catches & New England-style chowder are offered at this simple circa-1993 go-to.

If you’re looking for other amenities, the Redondo Square Shopping Center is close by for groceries, gas, auto repair, car wash, pet hospital, gyms, dining and more.

Commuters will enjoy that the Redondo Heights Park & Ride is close by, the Kent Station is 10 minutes away - consider parking and riding the Sounder Train, the commuter rail station. And if you need to drive anywhere the freeway is 10 minutes away too.
