Why rent in Puyallup, WA?
Renting in Washington State isn’t cheap — $200 over the national average in fact.* However, when you compare what you get by renting Puyallup apartments vs. say those in Seattle, you start to see a real value. Puyallup apartments are just under the national average for rental prices and over $1,000 a month cheaper than those in Seattle.

This price break is just one of the reasons the community of Puyallup looks pretty attractive to its 40,000 or so official residents.

What else does Puyallup have to offer? Proximity. It’s close to skiing and snowboarding on Mt. Rainier. It’s also close enough to the arts-and-culture hubs of Tacoma and Seattle to take advantage of them without having to pay Tacoma and Seattle rent.

Its closeness to Joint Base Lewis-McChord also makes Puyallup a favorite place for soldiers and their families to put down some roots.

What Puyallup has to offer

Puyallup's charm isn't hard to pinpoint, from its historic downtown to its status as one of Seattle's most liveable bedroom communities.

Downtown Puyallup
Puyallup's downtown is quaint as it comes, featuring a walkable core studded with restaurants, tap houses, coffee shops, and loads of antiques, many of them one-of-kind small businesses.

While outsiders probably think of the Washington State Fair when they think Puyallup — and why shouldn’t they? — locals can direct you to some lesser-known-but-much-loved activities like:

  • The Puyallup Farmers’ Market, which runs April through mid-October.
  • The fall fun of Meeker Mansion’s Cider Squeeze every October.
  • Or the Thursday-night Concerts in the Park series that runs every summer (tip: it’s gotten so popular it’s now hosted in two parks and even has Tuesday series for kids).   

South Hill
Although technically outside city limits, most of what locals call South Hill has a Puyallup address, and it’s population actually exceeds that of the city proper. As you move South on Meridian Ave, Puyallup’s largest arterial, you will slowly move into farmland, foothills, and eventually arrive at Washington’s famed Mt. Rainier, but not without first passing through South Hill and it’s myriad shopping and dining options, which include:

  • The South Hill Mall (Macy’s, Target, Express, Sephora, DSW, and more).
  • Numerous national chain restaurants (Red Robin, Buffalo Wild Wings, Dickey’s Barbecue, Mod Pizza and more).
  • And many local favorites (Out and About Burgers, Taqueria Los Amigos, and Karma Indian Cuisine).

South Hill’s popularity doesn’t seem to be slowing anytime soon, so expect more Puyallup apartments and Puyallup rentals to be listed on this page soon.
