Zoolights —Always magical! Go early!
Don’t go on New Years Eve!
Great fun, delightful for all

Owens Beach-terrific all year for families, or solo. I never tire of the changing view . So lucky to have such beauty nearby.

Whenever I feel the need for the woods, large trees, salt water beach, view the Narrows Bridges, I take a drive thru the Point. Absolutely beautiful place.

Pt Defiance Park is one of the great open spaces left in Tacoma. Great drive, walk or hike. Plus there is the Zoo. Great little zoo for the space. Beach access also.

Point defiance has great views and tons of activities for the whole family. Plan enough time to make a whole day the area. There is a zoo, hiking trails, shops and restaurants, museum, marina, dog park and a very scenic drive.
