    Living in Tacoma , WA

    Situated along the south end of Puget Sound and in the shadow of Mt. Rainier, Tacoma offers clean air, beautiful scenery, and a vibrant atmosphere.

    There are plenty of interesting things to do here, from an abundance of outdoor activities, like hiking, biking, and kayaking, to the city's museums, casinos, and theaters. You really will never run out of things to keep you busy in Tacoma.

    You’re also only a half-hour away from Seattle, which is home to its own professional baseball and football teams.

    Tacoma does have its downsides though. While beautiful, it can be frequently gloomy with cloudy, cool weather and mist. Winters are fairly chilly too. Also, the traffic around Seattle is considered some of the worst in the country.

    But you can’t beat the outdoor lifestyle and mostly comfortable weather year-round. The snow-capped mountains, the tree-filled parks, and the events in nearby Seattle make Tacoma a great place to call home.

    Things to do in Tacoma

    Outdoor lovers will love hiking parts of Mt. Rainier or Mt. Baker, both of which offer breathtaking views, plenty of greenery, and even waterfalls. Whether you’re a camper or just looking to get a little fresh air and exercise, being close to either of these mountains is invigorating.

    Or you can head to the beautiful Point Defiance Park in Tacoma. The park is 760-acres and features a zoo, aquarium, and a history museum, as well as beaches, hiking and biking trails, playgrounds, and picnic areas.

    There's a lot to discover in downtown Tacoma. Stroll along Museum Row, shop at the many unique stores, dine at a nice restaurant, or snack on a cupcake or donut at a local bakery. There's also a movie theater and live shows to check out.

    The city also hosts a Daffodil Festival every April, which is a great way to welcome spring. In fact, it’s one of the nation's top 10 floral festivals. The Holiday Torchlight Parade & Tree Lighting in Tacoma takes place in November, kicking off the holiday season – and giving children a chance to see Santa ride in on his sleigh.

    Though the Seahawks and Mariners are definitely big draws, you don’t have to travel to Seattle to see some high-quality sports. The Tacoma Rainiers are the local AAA baseball team affiliated with the Mariners, and the Seattle Sounders is a Tacoma soccer team that frequently makes it to the playoffs.

    But if you do make the journey to Seattle, you won't be disappointed. There's plenty of fun to be had exploring Pike’s Market, the Museum of Flight, the Space Needle, and the Seattle Underground Tour.

    Employment and Economy

    Tacoma's unemployment rate is slightly higher than Seattle and the state of Washington as a whole.

    Technology and agriculture are the city's major industries, with MultiCare Health Systems being the largest private employer. Microsoft, Boeing, Starbucks, Nordstrom’s, and Amazon are just a few of the companies that have headquarters or main offices located in the Seattle-Tacoma area.

    Tips for Renting in Tacoma

    There's so much to love about the Tacoma. And the city is very good about making tenants and landlords aware of their rights. The program ensures both landlords and tenants have access to the tools needed to sustain safe and healthy communities.

    A landlord has 24 hours to make repairs if the issue involves the use of hot or cold water, heat or electricity, or poses a significant hazard. 72 hours is the repair time for appliances, and all other work should be completed within 10 days of notice.

    Washington State doesn't have rent control, so a landlord can raise the rent as they see fit at the end of the lease period – but they have to inform you of the increase at least 30 days prior to it going into effect.

    When you rent in Tacoma, make sure to read the lease thoroughly so you know what’s expected of you and your landlord.
