Things to Do
While Gig Harbor offers all of the basic necessities, Tacoma is where the real action is. There are countless walking trails and biking trails just outside the city for the outdoorsy types. City lovers can enjoy a tour of the LeMay America's Car Museum or the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium. Tacoma also offers performing arts centers and a thriving nightlife.
Wollochet Bay Estuary Park and Kopachuck State Park are also in the city, giving you plenty of green space to roam around.
Artondale is an ideal alternative for those who want to enjoy the best parts of Tacoma without having to live in the city. Seattle and Bellevue are also a convenient drive away, especially for fans of the previous Super Bowl champs the Seattle Seahawks.
