The University of Puget Sound is by the coast, around 36 miles south of Seattle. The walkable city embraces outdoor living, being set by water and the mountain. There's plenty to see and do in Tacoma, and Seattle's restaurants, attractions, and museums are less than an hour away.
The university is in Tacoma's North End. Visitors to campus can print out a day parking permit to use during their stay. From downtown Tacoma, take bus line 1 to the junction of 6th Avenue and S Puget Sound Avenue.
The 500-foot pedestrian bridge leading to the Museum of Glass is an attraction in itself. The brightly colored glass installations set into the bridge are eye-catching, and even more so when lit up at night.
This cavernous museum in Tacoma takes its name from Harold LeMay, who donated his personal collection of automobiles to establish the museum. There are European and American vehicles from all eras of car manufacturing. Book a VIP experience to get a guided tour and photo opportunities with the collection's most iconic vehicles.
This museum in downtown Tacoma features permanent collections focusing on native Americans and industrialization, and a range of temporary exhibitions.
