Though it may be located just 11 miles southeast of Seattle, Renton, Washington has its own charm. With both indoor and outdoor attractions, you can find something to do in Renton no matter the weather. Book a stay at one of our Renton hotels and start discovering what the region has to offer.
Make sure you visit these local attractions while in town:
There are many ways to take advantage of Renton’s scenic beauty while in town. Go for a relaxing stroll through the walking trails of Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park and take in the gorgeous views of Lake Washington. If you are feeling more active, you can enjoy the volleyball and tennis courts. If the weather is nice, check out the beach, complete with a swimming area and boat launch, or enjoy a barbecue in the park.
You also can head over to Kubota Garden to unwind. This peaceful Japanese garden has streams, waterfalls and a variety of plants and trees spread out over 20 acres.
The Henry Moses Aquatic Center offers additional opportunities for outdoor fun. With a wave pool, water slides, lazy river and play area for young children, this water park offers a great way to beat the heat.
While the great outdoors are a big reason to visit Renton, there are plenty of other ways to spend a rainy day. Uptown Glassworks is one of the largest glass blowing shops and glass art galleries in the Pacific Northwest. You can check out the shop’s handiwork, attend seminars, or even take a glass blowing class (offered for adults and children) if you are feeling artistically inspired.
If you want a truly unforgettable way to see the region’s natural beauty, consider taking an aerial tour of Renton, Lake Washington, and the Seattle area with Northwest Seaplanes. Charter a flight from south Lake Washington and enjoy breathtaking bird’s eye views of Seattle, Lake Washington and the Puget Sound.
Before heading out of town, make sure to visit the Jimi Hendrix Grave Site in Greenwood Memorial Park to pay your respects. Hendrix is perhaps Renton’s most famous resident, and this memorial, complete with a statue depicting Hendrix live in concert, is truly fit for one of rock’s greatest guitarists.
