No tour of Western Washington is complete without a visit to one of the state's oldest cities, Orting. Nestled in the foothills of Mt Rainier between the Puyallup and Carbon Rivers, Orting is a quaint turn-of-the-century village that you will not forget.
The town center is anchored by three parks filled with giant maples and evergreens. You will be awed by the view of Mt. Rainier from Washington Avenue.
The levees on the east and west sides of town are perfect for hikes along the rivers. The 20 mile Foothills Trail meanders right through the middle of town and then takes you along the Carbon River levee. Bike, walk, take the stroller and bring your family pet. Enjoy the turn-of-the-century architecture of downtown and eat at one of our many downtown restaurants.
If your timing is right you can take part in the:
- Daffodil festival and parade, the first Saturday of April
- Kingsmen Car show comes to town the third Saturday in June
- Pumpkin festival the second weekend of October
- Christmas festival throughout the month of December
