Rhubarb Pie could be just your first taste of the fun you can have in and around Sumner.  Whether you're looking for the quiet life or a rush of adrenaline, this is just a sampling of the options available to you:


A Slice of Fishing

Sumner is a great place to start your fishing trip.  We're surrounded by two rivers and located right between the salmon of Puget Sound, the rainbow trout of the mountains and the tiger muskies in neighboring Lake Tapps.


Visit the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife

A Slice of the Unexpected
At Sumner's events, you can interact with Norman Rockwell paintings, sample over 20 kinds of wine, enter your dog in a costume contest or watch scarecrows dance on Main Street.  Visit our calendar of events and plan your trip so that you can join in one or more of our celebrations!
A Slice of the Great Outdoors
Nothing goes as well with Rhubarb Pie as the fresh air of fir trees, high mountain peaks, hiking and picnics on top of the world.  Sumner is less than an hour's drive from Mt. Rainier National Park.

A Slice of Sports
Work up a rhubarb appetite.  Enjoy a round of golf at Sumner Meadows Golf Links, featuring the longest hole in Washington.  Or, hop Sounder to weekend Mariners or Seahawks games.  You board in Sumner, and step off the train right at the stadium--easier than finding parking!
A Slice of Shopping
Not only does Downtown Sumner combine quality brands like Life Is Good and Vera Bradley with small-town charm, but Sumner is also close to other shopping experiences as well.  Whether your prefer department stores at South Hill Mall or the outlet discounts at Supermall of the Great Northwest, you're close to a lot of shopping!
A Slice of Seattle
Want to enjoy caffeinated energy of Seattle and return to sleep in Small Town USA?  Sumner is the perfect opportunity!  And, if you use Sounder, you don't even have to drive in the city. Sample Pike Place Market (think they have rhubarb?), the Seattle Art Museum, the Space Needle and Seattle Center and then come back "home."

Visit Seattle Convention & Visitors Bureau

A Slice of Tacoma
We're even closer to Tacoma, and the trains run that way too!  Visit Dale Chihuly's hometown by exploring Tacoma's Museum District or stroll the two-mile waterfront promenade along Commencement Bay.
