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.
I really love the community feel, but I hate how overpriced everything is in this town. Everything costs an arm and a leg. Also there are too many warehouses. The people are great though!
