About Ta​co​​​ma

​The city of Tacoma, located on Puget Sound in the heart of the Pacific Northwest's "evergreen playground," has nearly 66 miles of shoreline and many parks, including Point Defiance Park - one of the largest urban parks in the US - with a world-class zoo and aquarium. The city of Seattle, ocean beaches and mountains are all within easy driving distance. 

Tacoma has a culturally diverse population of over 200,000. People of all ages enjoy numerous museums, such as the Washington State Historical Museum, the Tacoma Art Museum and the Museum of Glass; theater productions; art galleries; a fine library system; musical entertainment; and many local events. The Tacoma Dome hosts sports and entertainment activities, and Cheney Stadium is home to a professional AAA baseball team.

Tacoma also has several universities: the University of Puget Sound, Pacific Lutheran University and the University of Washington Tacoma. Joint Base Lewis McChord and Madigan Army Hospital further enhance the Tacoma community.
