Tacoma, Washington's third largest municipality, is located on Puget Sound about 30 miles south of Seattle. The city, founded in 1864, has a rich history that you can learn about in its many museums. The newly restored Union Station, Washington State History Museum, Pioneer Motorcycle Museum, Karpeles Manuscript library Museum, Working Waterfront Museum, Children's Museum of Tacoma, and the only African American Museum in the Pacific Northwest will provide you a history lesson you won't soon forget.
If you're in the mood for some outdoor recreation, try fishing, kayaking or scuba diving in Puget Sound. The 698 acre Point Defiance Park offers plenty of recreation including the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium, historic Fort Nisqually, and Camp 6 Logging Exhibit.
