Tacoma has 46 miles of shoreline, and the waterfront shapes the community. 150 years ago, Tall Trading ships came to Tacoma to load logs and lumber needed to build cities up and down America’s West Coast. Tacoma’s people have lived on these shores for generations or have come recently from lands around the world.
Tacoma also connects with nations around the world through its 11 Sister Cities. Innovations, customer service, ingenuity and creativity have built Tacoma’s reputation as a great maritime city. Come celebrate Tacoma’s heritage!
