Tacoma – Worth the Stop!
Have you been to Tacoma? No? You flew into Sea-Tac on your way to the great city of Seattle, where you have a list of things to do: see the troll, visit the Seattle Tower, and go to a pub or two for some good grub and music…right? You never looked south of the airport, to the second half of the name…”Tac” for Tacoma. Not many people do.
The truth is, Tacoma is a really nice little city. After it’s crime boom in the 1990’s, the city got pro-active and decided to renovate, re-brand, and re-make itself into a hip, fun, town center with beautiful brick buildings, lending it such a retro vibe. Tacoma has museums, a university, great restaurants, and a vibrant night scene. As you walk its hilly streets, you will notice the abundance of colorful street art, and that is just the beginning.
Enjoy this collection of Tacoma street art.
Give Tacoma a try. It’s not all just pretty on the surface. It’s a pretty nice little city.
