    up from pdx to renton for 2 weeks..

    I'm staying at a hotel in Trenton for 2 weeks while I work in this area. (Sitting at interbay train yard right now)
    I can't carry when I'm working but was wondering if there's anything I should know about this area?
    I went to Walmart right off 405 exit 2 and there's a lot of foreigners in this area...

    Also valid was permit

    I'm going to say you meant Renton (as your title says)... not the body of your message. There are many things you can do. Within 5 miles you have an outdoor shooting range - Renton Fish and Game Club www.rfgc.org or an indoor range Champion Arms in Kent www.championarms.com What is it you want to do? There are at least 4 guns stores plus the major sporting good chain stores within the area too. Couple of references for you regarding WA CPL http://www.dol.wa.gov/business/firea...oncealfaq.html http://www.atg.wa.gov/ConcealedWeapo...x#.Uc5BXCrn_IU http://handgunlaw.us/states/washington.pdf

    4th of July at Gene Coulon Park

    Just north of your location, at the very south end of Lake Washington, is Gene Coulon Park. They put up a very nice fireworks display about 10 PM. Festivities start about noon if I remember correctly. Tends to be lots of Renton City cops on hand for traffic and people control, none have ever bothered me for open carry, just a few looks here and there.

    The City of Renton invites you to celebrate Independence Day in Renton. Enjoy free children's activities and face-painting from 12:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m., free rides in Voyageur Canoes from 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m., stage entertainment from 1:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m., and a professional fireworks display from the shores at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park at 10:00 p.m.

    Average attendance at Gene Coulon has been 20,000 for Renton's 4th of July event, with many more viewing the beautiful night-time fireworks display from boats, canoes, kayaks, and from several locations close to the park.

    For the past 10 years, the barge and fireworks display was positioned 1,000 feet from shore and shells went a maximum of 600 feet in the air. This year, the fireworks will be launched from the Ivarís water walk, 300 feet from shore, and shells will go a maximum of 300 feet in the air. The change in launch location is due to increased regulations in hazardous materials transportation and safety standards. Residents who have previously enjoyed the show from the surrounding hills may not be able to see the show this year Ė depending on their viewing angle.

    Sorry you have to stay in Renton - I live in the highlands east of exit 4. Here are a few options for you while you are in the area: we do have an open carry meet this Saturday up in Bothell, I am looking to go hiking this weekend so if you are interested in that I wouldn't mind having somebody along, and as someone else mentioned, there is a 4th of July party at Gene Coulon Park near the Landing from noon till 11 PM (right on the other side of the large Boeing building) - food and fireworks.
