Pre + Post Excursion and Event Ideas

You and your guests deserve a break from all that hard work. Pierce County is a place for fearless exploration. See for yourself...

Half day excursions

Washington is known for its wines, so it’s appropriate that you include an event for your guests to experience that wine firsthand. Load up the bus and take a short jaunt south of Tacoma to Stringtown Farms, a u-cut lavender farm with a winery and tasting room. Enjoy scenic views of Mount Rainier and the taste of Washington. 

Combine two unique Washington experiences, head north and take the ferry boat to Palouse Winery on Vashon Island. Palouse Winery is an award winning winery that will get your guests clamoring to come back to Tacoma + Pierce County for years to come. 

By the hour excursions

Tacoma has an amazing museum district, arrange guided tours for your guests or arrange tickets for them to enjoy multiple museums in one day! Your guests will be booking additional nights in Pierce County to experience it all.

Stop in any of the local wineries in Tacoma + Pierce County such as 21 CellarsVino Aquinio or Stina’s Cellars to sample their latest varietals and blends. Or head over to WineS to sample a collection of all things Washington when it comes to wine.
