Roy, Washington, is a city in the western United States that epitomizes the cowboy culture. Located just outside of metropolitan Tacoma, this rural town is home to more horses than movie theaters. The streets of Roy are lined with ranches and quaint homes set on lands that stretch for acres. With fewer than 1,000 people in the city, knowing your neighbor is not an option but a necessity. Locals and tourists alike sense the community and familial feel. With the 555th Engineer Brigade stationed at nearby Hill Air Force Base, military families are constantly flowing in and out of the city. From the Hill Aerospace Museum to the numerous buildings collecting the relics of expeditions gone past, Roy is an affordable and interesting spot for a western vacation.
