A slice of Americana located just 20 minutes south of downtown Tacoma offers the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Rich in history, DuPont is home to the original site of Fort Nisqually, a Hudson’s Bay Company Trading Post in 1833. Now it is home to world-class golf and many beautiful hiking trails through Sequalitchew Creek trails and beach. Hike the long-abandoned railroad tracks, pass the first schoolhouse in the Washington Territory and spy eagles, hawks, ducks, deer and rabbits.

Experience world-class golf at The Home Course – host of the 2014 USGA Women’s Amateur Public Links. With scenic views of the Olympic mountain range and sprawling greens, this beautiful course is playable for golfers of all skill levels, but still poses a challenge for low-handicap players.

End the day at Farelli’s Gourmet Wood Fire Pizza. This well-known local chain specializes in pizza, pasta, salad and local craft brews. After a long day of golf, there’s nothing a pizza and beer can’t fix!
