Westfield Southcenter is the largest shopping center in Washington, but while their many shops, restaurants and entertainment options are great, not everyone enjoys the hustle and bustle. For a similar selection of shopping, food, and entertainment with a much more laid back vibe, give Renton Landing a try.
The Landing, as the locals call it, is beautifully situated near the lake. It’s located right by Boeing’s Renton campus, and offers a similar variety of places to shop, things to do and conveniences to use as Southcenter. You can get everything you need done in one place, from food, grocery and electronics shopping, to visiting the dentist, the optometrist or the doctor. Once you’re exhausted from all of the shopping and errands, there are plenty of restaurants where you can fill up on food and drinks.
Most people go to the Landing for the big stores: Target, Marshall’s, and Ross. For those who like to bargain hunt, the Landing locations of Marshall’s and Ross do not get picked clean of great items as quickly as the Southcenter and Downtown Seattle locations do. Most of the time, these stores have slim pickings at their other location, quite simply because of the heavy amount of foot traffic they get. Better to start the Landing locations to get the best selection.
For anyone who works in Renton, the Landing is only a short drive away from most of the major employers in the area. Boeing is actually just a short walk away. Those who work at Providence Health and Services and Paccar are also just a short drive away from plenty of restaurants who can provide a fast and tasty lunch, while also having plenty of extra services for running whatever quick household errands necessary.
There are also plenty of extra pampering services too, from hair salons to nail salons to massage spas. It’s easy to conclude a day of running around with a quick pedicure, or have a date night after running errands with dinner and a movie.
The best part is, Renton Landing is only an 8 minute drive from Sunrise Suites Highlander!
