Summer Adventure Seekers

Plan Your True Northwest Adventure

You’re an explorer; an adventurer. You seek out electrifying settings and challenging activities and can’t be bothered to waste your vacation on anything less. Take action. Start planning your next getaway to Tacoma + Pierce County.

Bask in the sun on the beach and breathe in the refreshing sea air from your stand-up paddle board at Ruston Way Waterfront or cruise a waterfront trail on your bike and hike lush trails in Tacoma’s 760-acre Point Defiance Park. Explore your artistic side with a glass-blowing class. Take a stimulating break at the Harbor History Museum, grab lunch and a craft beer at 7 Seas Brewing, and catch a scenic afternoon boat tour in Gig Harbor. Only two miles from downtown Tacoma, you can try your luck at Emerald Queen Casino, which features Las Vegas-style table and machine games, first-class restaurants and award-winning concert headliners.

When it’s time to venture into the countryside, make sure to stop at Crystal Mountain Resort, where you can ride the Mt. Rainier Gondola, take a scenic yoga class, enjoy mountain hiking and horseback riding trails, play disc golf, take a guided walking tour, and top-off your day with a meal at the Summit House.
