Lifestyle In Tacoma
Situated along the saltwater banks of Puget Sound, Tacoma is a mid-sized urban port city with a population of 211,277 (U.S. Census Bureau, 2016 pop. estimates), which is forecasted to reach nearly five million people and grow to more than three million jobs by 2040. Tacoma is located in Pierce County, notable for being home to Mount Rainier, the tallest mountain (and volcano) in the Cascade Range. Tacoma also serves as the centre of business activity for the South Sound region, with an approximate population of one million.
The main downtown area sits on a narrow, hilly strip of land between Puget Sound to the west and Lake Washington to the east. Families are drawn to Tacoma's attractive neighbourhoods with big city amenities, and true urbanites are enticed to downtown Tacoma for its competitively priced living spaces with sweeping mountain, city and water views.

The Business Sector And Tacoma's Business Growth
Tacoma was chosen to be the western terminus of the Northern Pacific Railroad in the late 19th century, earning its moniker as the City of Destiny. Presently, the neighbouring Commencement Bay serves the Port of Tacoma, a centre of international trade on the Pacific Coast and is among the largest deep-water container ports in North America. More than 70% of its international cargo emanates from or is delivered to the central and eastern parts of the U.S. The Port also handles about 80% of the marine cargo between Alaska and the Lower 48 states. Port activities generate more than 28,000 jobs and $477 million in wages in Pierce County. (City-data.com/Tacoma Economy).
