Tacoma

Tacoma is a city on the rise. A revitalized downtown, gorgeous views of Mt. Rainier and Puget Sound, and easy access to both Seattle and Olympia—as well as the West Sound—have put this historic city in the spotlight as one of the Pacific Northwest’s best places to call home. The city sits on Commencement Bay, which is home to the Port of Tacoma, the largest port in Washington State. Tacoma takes advantage of the water that’s so nearby in our parks, including Point Defiance. Within the park, you can see historic reenactments at Fort Nisqually, rent the Pagoda for special occasions, or walk along the water at Owen Beach. The Ruston Way waterfront along Commencement Bay is one of the loveliest walks in the city, complete with restaurants and other businesses to take in along the way. Tacoma has a thriving arts scene as well. Downtown’s revitalization really got started with the Washington State History Museum, followed by the Museum of Glass, featuring works from Tacoma’s native son, Dale Chihuly. In fact, our fair city is home to the State’s biggest concentration of arts and history museums. While you’re perusing the museums, be sure to see the sights along the Thea Foss Waterway, a renovated urban waterfront named for the founder of Foss Maritime and the woman Tugboat Annie was based on. Whether you come for the parks, the museums, the unique neighborhoods or the best views of Mt. Rainier in the world, Tacoma will welcome you with open arms and charm you with its many delights.
