Sumner

Historic Sumner - with old town charm!

Sumner is a quaint town right off Hwy 410 in Pierce County and one of my wife’s favorite spots to meet up with her friends. With small boutiques and hometown restaurants lining Main Street there are always lots of options for a quick lunch with friends or nosing around stores for a perfectly unique gift. While Sumner may be small in size, it is definitely big on preserving its historic neighborhoods and the sense of community it has had for many years. Our family loves to pack a picnic and go to one of the many summer concerts in the park or bundle up for ‘Friday Night Lights’ at Sunset Stadium.

      Calling this town “home” is easy for many of our friends, as it still has a small town feel but is just a short train ride away from Tacoma or Seattle. They love the little things that Sumner is known for such as the Old Cannery Furniture Warehouse , the Sumner Arts Festival or the beautiful Windmill Gardens. When visiting, our kids can almost always talk us into dinner at  Aversano’s Italian Restaurant (I love everything I’ve ever had here!) or Sabrina’s Lunch In A Box (amazing French Dip in my opinion) . Sumner also does a fantastic job of putting together a variety of programs through the parks & rec department for both kids and adults alike. One of my dearest friends who has lived in Sumner for 15 years, loves all the year round activities that keep families both active and connected. Sumner is a town that truly loves its residents!
