Renton is a city in King County, in the state of Washington. Situated in an area called the Eastside, 21 km southeast of Seattle, Renton is a manufacturing center with a population of around 91,000 residents. The city lies along lake Washington's southeast coast. The city of Renton is the 9th largest metropolis in Washington State and 4th most densely inhabited city within King County.

Founded during the 1860s, Renton was incorporated as a city in the year 1901. Erasmus M. Smithers discovered coal here during the 1800s. Timber and coal resources were abundant, and both mining and timber processing became the primary economic businesses within the area. The town was a supply center for the Newcastle coal fields. Renton's proximity to the Cedar and Black Rivers made the town susceptible to flooding until the construction of the Lake Washington Ship Canal in the year 1916 lowered the surface of Lake Washington a few feet. The Cedar River was diverted to Lake Washington and eliminated the drainage through the Black River.

According to per capita income, Renton ranks 100th of 522 regions in Washington State. Tech businesses like Paccar, Boeing, and some dot-com ventures make their home within the city. IKEA moved to the city of Renton during 1994 and in 2007 a branch of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) established itself here. During the year 2008, a new branch of the Federal Reserve Bank moved to Renton.

The city is busy with various major residential and retail developments. The city of Renton has gone through several revitalization projects. Amongst the most significant is the Virginia Mason Athletic Center (or also known as VMAC), housing the Seattle Seahawks training facility and headquarters, completed during 2008. This is the 2nd largest NFL facility. Located within north Renton, the Center has an area of 19,000 m2.
