Be Inspired Where You Live
Located in the Pacific Northwest, just 30 miles south of Seattle, Tacoma is situated along the shores of Puget Sound and within sight of majestic Mount Rainier. Over the past two decades, Tacoma has transformed itself from a former lumber town to a city with nationally recognized museums, a University of Washington branch campus and a vibrant arts community. Tacoma is the third largest city in Washington State. Affectionately nicknamed “T-Town”, Tacoma has stayed true to its working class roots and is known for its unpretentious vibe and genuine community spirit.
