Des Moines is a waterfront community located midway between Seattle and Tacoma in Washington State. Our community was homesteaded by a group from Des Moines, Iowa and we share the same name. Des Moines has numerous beaches and public parks on Puget Sound. We offer housing opportunities for every income level and the city is continually seeking new business and development opportunities. The city’s marina is right next door to our small-town shopping district. Our fishing piers and boardwalk are premiere places to stroll as the sun sets behind the Olympic Mountains. Mild seasons provide an occasional snow day in the winter and temperatures rarely exceed 90 degrees in the summer. The residential population of Des Moines is 30,000. Des Moines is also home to Highline College and several retirement homes.
