Tacoma serves as the center of business activity for the South Sound region, which is the third largest city in the state. The flourishing economy is due in part to the railroad and Tacoma’s location on the sound. The motto became “When rails meet sails” because The Port of Tacoma, a center of international trade on the Pacific Coast, is Washington State’s largest port.

 

Tacoma is experiencing unprecedented growth. Having won accolades such as one of the countries most livable cities and most walkable cities. With the highest density of museums in the state, numerous parks and waterfront attractions, and the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, there is something to do every day, rain or shine. Tacoma is responding to its new population by investing more than $1 billion dollars in downtown Tacoma alone. People are drawn to downtown Tacoma for its vast mountain, city and water views, while others gravitate toward Tacoma’s charming neighborhoods with big city amenities.

 

With a vibrant, creative community at your every turn, Tacoma marches to the beat of its own drum. With year-round events, you’ll never tire of this city. Spend your day at the farmer’s market or enjoying one of the many restaurants offered here. You’ll also find an abundance of outdoor activities; walk the shoreline, run or bike on one of the many trails Tacoma offers.
