Weather for Tacoma Washington Forecast

Located at the foot of Mt. Rainier, Tacoma is an urban city booming with arts and culture.  Known the world over as home to world-class glass artists, a visit to Tacoma wouldn’t be complete without seeing the Chihuly Bridge of Glass or watching glass blowers make art at the Museum of Glass and Hot Shop Amphitheater. 

Tacoma also boasts several seasonal festivals, such as Tall Ships, where some of the most marvelous sailing vessels from around the world come to port and Wintergrass, an annual music festival that hosts various live performances throughout the city. 

If you’re looking for more family-friendly activities, spend the day at the wonderful Point Defiance Park Zoo & Aquarium.  Sitting on more 700 acres of green space, Point Defiance Park is a popular destination for more than two million people each year who flock there to get up close and personal with the animals at the Zoo, as well as to kayak, ride go-karts and take a swing in the batting cages.
