Voted one of America's 30 most livable cities in 2004, and showing tremendous improvement since, Tacoma is located on the shores of Commencement Bay, 36 miles South of Seattle. Nicknamed "The City of Destiny," Tacoma has grown steadily in recent years, following a revitalization of its historic downtown, and the establishment of a thriving Cultural District, with a number of museums, galleries, and live music venues. Tacoma's growing arts scene offers an interesting contrast to the blue collar industrial economy of shipping and paper manufacturing which traditionally shaped the city.

The seat of Puget Sound, Tacoma was first settled by Americans in the 1850s as the site of a sawmill, and was later selected as the western terminus of the Northern Pacific Railroad. Its rail heritage is apparent today in the form of an extensive commuter rail and light rail public transport system. Today, Tacoma is a vital stop along the Interstate 5 Highway, running from Seattle to Los Angeles, and the third largest city in Washington State. 


Tacoma is renowned for its natural beauty, and features stunning Mount Rainier as its backdrop, which is also the source of its city name - "Tacoma" is derived from the indigenous "tacobet," meaning "mother of waters." Tacoma's lush rain coast setting also features well-known nature spots like Commencement Bay, Browns Point, Vashon Island, Gig Harbor, and The Narrows, making it easy to find a Tacoma home with a view. Within the city, residents enjoy one of the largest urban parks in the nation, Point Defiance Park, which includes a number of attractions along a scenic five mile drive. Other popular recreation spots in Tacoma include Wapato Park in the city's south end, Titlow Beach, a popular scuba diving area, and Wright Park, an English-style green belt dating back to the 1880s.
