TACOMA + PIERCE COUNTY

Go Out, Explore!

Tacoma + Pierce County is a place for people unafraid to trek through the woods of Mount Rainier in the rain, fearless of breaking a sweat in the heat of the hot shop while blowing glass and resiliently tilling the soil that grows some of the world's best rhubarb.
 
From the Puget Sound waters to Mount Rainier and everything in between Pierce County communities are unique. Check out rhubarb pie in Sumner or antiques in Puyallup. Maritime can be found in Gig Harbor, while majestic gardens are in Lakewood. Discover history in Fife or connect with nature at Mount Rainier. With each just a car-ride away from Tacoma's glass art scene, it's easy to go out and explore.
