DuPont is a cute little town located north west of joint base Lewis-McChord. The town has a good selection of restaurants and bars. The neighborhoods are very nice, clean and the people are friendly. The only downside is there is no grocery store and unless you're military affiliated, the closest grocery store is 15 minutes away if there isn't traffic.

Dupont is an awesome town! It is close to JBLM so is about 70% military/military affiliated. Great place to live and invest because a good bit of the population is transient. It's also right off I-5 so it's accessible. IT is CUTE. The neighborhood planners did an amazing job. There is a commuter station. It is over and hour from Seattle.
There are so many things I love about DuPont! The schools, safety for raising a family, or simply the quaintness of a small town. I also love the fact that we know our neighbors, the local waitresses and even the woman who runs the local nail salon. Being in the military this is where I've been stationed 2 times now and where I will continue to call home because there is no where else in the world I'd rather be. I love DuPont! Yes, it's a little more expensive to live here, but it's worth it.
