Crime & Safety
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.
This city is like a small slice of heaven! It's a pretty small community, but everyone is super friendly and helpful. The landscaping and architechture on the homes are beautiful. There's good balance in the variety of people here. It's definitely ideal for families. Lots of patriotism and optimism. Some of the lowest crime rates in the state, good schools nearby, lots of parks and hiking trails always lead you to new adventures!
DuPont, WA is an absolute beautiful family oriented community which provides conveyance and access to Interstate 5. I'm currently serving as a active duty service member stationed at JBLM, this community is right outside of post and saves invaluable time on my daily commute. Above all, the city of DuPont is a family friendly area, with amazing curb appeal. Apart from a major grocery store, the city affords more than adequate establishments in the downtown area. In addition, the city of DuPont has a great community outreach program which facilitates unified garaged sales, sporting events, holiday celebration, and delivers an informative events calendar free of charge to all residents. As a parent with three school-age kids, I have been very impressed with the local schools/educational program afforded. This is my third time being assigned to JBLM and I can't think of another place I would rather live.
