Things to do

Museum hopping in downtown Tacoma

Sitting on the tip of Tacoma’s peninsula, Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium gets you face to face with both Pacific Rim wildlife and exotic animals. While you’re in the park, don’t miss Fort Nisqually, a meticulously recreated 1830s trading post complete with costumed guides. Tacoma doesn’t scrimp on culture, with a string of offbeat museums to explore. You can drool over vintage classics at the America’s Car Museum, discover the art of flamework at the Museum of Glass, or admire American masterpieces at the Tacoma Art Museum.


Relive your favorite 10 Things scenes

Covering a 700-acre footprint, Point Defiance Park is the city’s flagship green space. Whether you want to enjoy a picnic on the beach, stroll around the Rose Garden or wander along old growth forest trails, the park is a breath of fresh air. To the north is the historic Stadium district, peppered with leafy parks, boutique shops, and beautiful heritage buildings. If you want to live and breathe the lifestyle, Tacoma vacation rentals unlock access to stunning craftsman-style bungalows in the heart of Stadium. You can also stop by the magnificent Stadium High School, made famous by hit 90s film 10 Things I Hate About You.


A year-round cultural calendar

Like Seattle, Tacoma has a rainy reputation. Maximize your chances of sunshine by visiting in summer, when the city’s street scene is at its best. The historic Stadium quarter hosts a colorful calendar of seasonal events, from the family-friendly Halloween celebrations to the annual Dickens Holiday Festival. Held in June, the Festival of Sail tall ship regatta sees legions of festivalgoers descend on Puget Sound. If you don’t mind a little rain, winter is a great time to beat the crowds and have Tacoma’s museums all to yourself.

Natural features

Wildflowers and waterfront scenery

Hugging the shores of Puget Sound, Tacoma blends history, culture and sparkling coastal scenery. It’s a short 30-mile drive south of Seattle which makes it an easy stopover if you’re road-tripping along the Washington coast. From frolicking orcas to fiery sunsets, why not soak up the views with beautiful Tacoma vacation rentals overlooking Puget Sound? With its glacier-capped peak, wildflower strewn meadows and hiking trailheads, Mount Rainier National Park is a mecca for outdoor lovers. If you’d rather not hit the hiking trails, car accessible Sunrise Lookout offers sweeping views over the park.
