Tacoma became known as the City of Destiny in 1887 after it was designated as the Northern Pacific Railroad's western terminus in 1873.
Scores of immigrants flocked to our city then; and now as the city undergoes a thriving renaissance, we’re seeing another surge of immigration as residents and investors flock to this great destination.
Tacoma has again emerged as the urban heart of the South Puget Sound.
This Web site offers a snapshot, through the links above, of this inviting Northwest community, and why more and more people are calling Tacoma their City of Destiny, and most of all, their destination for living, working, playing and staying.
Let it be your destiny, too.
