The name translates from a Native American dialect and means "generous people." Puyallup is still a town with a strong heritage of community. Today, there are modern cultural amenities that blend nicely with a nod to the past. Arts Downtown is an outdoor sculpture gallery and there's an antique mall to satisfy your vintage shopping needs. Additionally, the natural grandeur of the Pacific Northwest acts as a perfect backdrop to the city.
