With views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, the homes comprising the quaint city of Ruston slope down to the shores of Commencement Bay. Waterfront living opportunities are available here, with more in development—including multi-family residential living that will coexist alongside commercial and recreational opportunities. Surrounded by Tacoma on three sides, (and the sound on its fourth,) Ruston manages to hold onto its small-town feeling nestled up against the big city and a just a short trip to Point Defiance Park.

Noted for its arts-and-crafts style homes, including Victorian, Northwest contemporary, and craftsman,  with traditionally scored sidewalks with welcome landscaping, the residential population hovers just under 1,200. Residents can easily pivot to nearby communities including Tacoma, Vashon Island (via the ferry), and up-and-down the I-5 corridor via Ruston way. And the bustling soul of the town is found on Winnifred Street and 51st Street, which hosts civic buildings, parks and public gathering spaces abundant with community celebrations, festivals, and block parties.
