Seattleite Goes South for the Spring

Seattleite recently paid a visit to Tacoma to discover what the City of Destiny has to offer residents of its neighbor to the north.

“Compared to Seattle (especially these days), the pace there feels significantly slower, the streets emptier, the buildings lower,” shares Corinne Whiting, Seattleite contributor.  “Seattleites might not think of Tacoma for a nearby adventure, but traveling just 45 minutes (traffic depending) can prove a refreshing respite from the routine and familiarity of home.”

Whiting took time to explore Museum of Glass, Tacoma Art Museum, Harmon Brewing Co., and Hotel Murano for a well-rounded arts and craft brew South Sound experience.
