Your Move to Tacoma
Tacoma is a mid-sized urban port city in and the county seat of Pierce County, Washington. The city is on Washington’s Puget Sound between the cities of Seattle and Olympia. It is locally known as the “City of Destiny” because the area was chosen to be the western terminus of the Northern Pacific Railroad in the late 19th century. The decision of the railroad was influenced by Tacoma’s neighboring deep-water harbor, Commencement Bay. By connecting the bay with the railroad, Tacoma’s motto became “When rails meet sails.”
Once your move to Tacoma is over, you’ll want to start exploring the city. Tacoma’s downtown Cultural District is the site of the Washington State History Museum and the Tacoma Art Museum. America’s Car Museum was completed in late 2011 and resides near the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma. The glass and steel Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center opened in November 2004.
If you love being outdoors, you’ll be very pleased after your move to Tacoma. Ruston Way is a waterfront area along Commencement Bay north of downtown Tacoma that hosts several public parks connected by a multi-use trail and interspersed with restaurants and other businesses. Public parks along Ruston Way include Jack Hyde Park, Old Town Dock, Hamilton Park, Dickman Mill Park, Les Davis Pier, Marine Park and Cummings Park.
