A Closer Look at Roy

Roy’s landscape is one of natural beauty: from densely forested areas to open prairies and farmland, its scenic views are aplenty. Located about a 35-minute drive south of Tacoma, Roy is a rural town that is close to Joint Base Lewis-McChord’s east gate, Northwest Trek, and neighboring cities of Eatonville, Yelm, Graham and Puyallup. The small city is home to fewer than 800 residents. Roy’s largest event and attraction is their biannual rodeo; the Roy Pioneer Rodeo attracts folks from all over the state.
