Tacoma, Washington is sandwiched between Seattle and Olympia. The city is known as the City of Destiny and is also considered one of America's Most Livable Cities due to its big city features and small town allure. This progressive, business-friendly city also boasts an extraordinary amount of diversity on all fronts: in its neighborhoods, its organizations, its restaurants, and its arts. When not focused on work, the city offers its inhabitants a wide variety of leisure activities: nature hikes, water-sports, boating, and more. Each of these can provide a great family day out with fun for children and teenagers of all ages. Through an intense process of restoration, beautifying historic buildings, and launching numerous state-of-the-art facilities, the downtown area now features wonderful attractions, like the Museum of Glass and the Washington State History Museum, both of which are great for family entertainment.1
