Life in Tacoma

Photo of downtown Tacoma with Mt. Rainier in the background, taken at dusk with street and auto lights.Welcome to Tacoma, The City of Destiny

Welcome to the city of hills and harbors. Welcome to a destination for artists and art-lovers. Welcome to a hard-working center of industry and commerce.

Tacoma is a big city with a small-town heart. We honor our past with beautifully preserved historic buildings and we look forward to the future with growing commercial districts and advances in transportation. Here, you can enjoy urban life in the city or get outside at the zoo, the beach, or in the dozens of gorgeous trails and parks.
