Lakewood is a business friendly community located next to the I-5 corridor and conveniently located just south of Tacoma between Sea-Tac International Airport to the north and the city of Olympia to the south. Host community to Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Lakewood has a strong business district, great educational opportunities, and exceptional resources to help businesses succeed. This coupled with the newly established Sounder commuter rail service connecting Lakewood to Seattle, make the City a major transportation hub for the lower Puget Sound region.

The city offers several beautiful parks, lakes, open spaces, historic treasures, shopping and diversified residential opportunities at affordable prices. Investments in major capital improvements to corridors have improved safety, traffic flow, aesthetics, and multi-modal access, and will continue to grow the business community for years to come.
