About Steilacoom, WA Community

Nestled between DuPont, Lakewood and Joint Base Lewis McChord, this small (population <6,000 2010 Census) Puget Sound waterfront town has all the charm you would expect from a town incorporated in 1854! Steilacoom is the oldest settlement in Washington and it's historic buildings still standing provide a small, seaside town look and feel. With it's proximity to Joint Base Lewis McChord, it has become a bedroom community for many of our armed forced stationed there. It's a very walkable town that hosts a number of events during the year, boasts a park, a Ferry ride to the nearest island and a super quaint / charming community. 

Steilacoom WA It has four individual buildings and sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including the oldest Catholic Church in the state and the first Protestant Church north of the Columbia River, as well as the Steilacoom Historic District, with 68 contributing properties.

Best Places to Eat in Steilacoom

There are many restaurants in and near Steilacoom, but my favorite are De la Terre (farm to table, small menu, great drinks), the historic Bair Restaurant (even though the wait is long, the food is worth it) and the Coffee Cabin next to the Fresh Picked Foods. The Steilacoom Pub & Grille has some pretty good bar food as well as the best tomato soup - served on Thursdays! Topside Bar & Grille is great for drinks and appetizers on a sunny day! All restaurants here.

You can do nothing in Steilacoom but just look at the picturesque view of the Puget Sound and Olympic and be completely happy. Summer is unbeatable in this area. The sunsets every night are literally a spectacular sight to see - with every one of them like a fingerprint (completely unique).

If you don't have your own kayak, rent one from NW Sup Kayak Rental on the beach at Sunnyside.
