Attractions, Sightseeing and Events


Tacoma Tourism and Sightseeing
Tacoma is a great location for exploring the Seattle-South Puget Sound environs. Boasting the longest continuous stretch of public waterfront for any U.S. city, Tacoma is just 20 minutes to the Seattle Tacoma International Airport, 30 minutes to downtown Seattle and 45 minutes to Mount Rainer park entrance. Top Tacoma attractions include the International Glass Museum, the Washington State History Museum, Antique Row and Point Defiance, a 700 acre waterfront rainforest park, with gardens, beaches, zoo & aquarium and 14 miles of trails through old growth forest. A short ferry ride from Point Defiance takes you across to Vashon Island, a long-held rural artist retreat with rural byways and local art galleries.  Skip to Best Places to Stay. Best Time to Visit.
