The Des Moines
Beach neighborhood definitely lives up to its name, as many of the apartments and homes
for rent reside within walking distance of the saltwater beachfront of Puget Sound. Des Moines Beach sits less than a mile from the city center with convenient access to the 516 Freeway, creating the perfect combination of waterfront living and the ease of a centralized location.
When it comes to outdoor recreation, there's always something to do in the Des Moines Beach community. Marine View Park is just minutes from the neighborhood and features hiking trails, bike paths, and a quiet beach, while the City of Des Moines Park Conservation Area provides several fishing spots where locals catch everything from salmon to shellfish.
Marine View Drive houses a wide variety of restaurants, many of which serve up some of the freshest seafood and tastiest appetizers around. Pay a visit to Wally's Chowderhouse Broiler for local seafood catches or some famous clam chowder, or stop by the Lighthouse Lounge for pub-style fish and chips or deep-fried plantains.
