A rapidly growing community, Lacey is home to a diverse population, one that is attractive to both young people and the retired.

With a strong base of healthcare facilities - including nearby St. Peter's Hospital and its satellite clinics, Panorama City, Jubilee and several other retirement facilities either established or being built - Lacey has become a popular place for the over 65 set.

Many retirees who have served their country at Fort Lewis have found Lacey, with its parks, lakes, championship-caliber golf course, and outstanding healthcare to be an excellent place to settle as well.

Lacey boasts seven lakes and several parks within its city limits, and the town is also next to one of the jewels of the Washington Wilderness - the Nisqually River.

The setting has become increasingly attractive for families who work in Tacoma or even Seattle, and want to live in the luscious Nisqually Valley, the farmlands of South Lacey, or the deep woods north of town.

Home to St. Martin's College, run by Benedictine monks, Lacey has a strong educational tradition. The college, along with the new South Puget Sound Community College satellite in Lacey, has brought in a stream of young people, who add enthusiasm and vigor to Lacey's diverse community.

The city, which lies directly to the east of Olympia is home to over 300 home based businesses. Many of those businesses are geared to serving a high retirement population in Lacey, but the statistics speak more to the Lacey residents desire to be their own boss, and live life the way they want to live it.
