Three different friends from other areas of the country each told me they are planning vacations to the Tacoma. They all talked about seeing the museums, trying restaurants, enjoying nature, and getting out on the water. Recent news coverage has raised Pierce County's profile and visitors have plenty to enjoy when arrive.
It doesn't surprise me that more and more people want to experience Pierce County. But, seeing our home through a tourist's eye has reminded me of all the fun activities I take for granted: walking through Point Defiance, attending events on the UW-T campus, and enjoying all the treats at Point Ruston. One thing I haven't done that will be on my list for this summer: fishing.
There are so many wonderful experience because dedicated and caring individuals, organizations, and businesses give of their time, talent, and treasure to make this a greater community for everyone. I hope you find time this summer to experience all our home has to offer. And if you see me down on the
Les Davis pier
, say hi!
