Exploring Around Tacoma: Mountain-City-Sea

I recently had the pleasure of spending a fun filled summer weekend in the Tacoma area discovering a few of the local wonders. I’ll be honest, I was surprised because I had no idea there were so many fun and diverse things to do so close to Tacoma.

Surprising Tacoma

From downtown Tacoma to the 14,410-foot peak of Mount Rainier just 42 miles away there’s a ton to do. You can enjoy incredible hiking in the mountains or along the edge of the Puget Sound. Spend some time on the water in a boat or on a paddle board. And of course enjoy award-winning restaurants and breweries.

Tacoma Area Tips

Below is a list of fun summer activities and tips.

This was all part of Tacoma South Sound Sports #MountainCitySea campaign promoting the incredible diversity of the area.  While this was a sponsored experience for me I truly had a wonderful time. With the help of my good friend and talented videographer Colin Christianson (Tenacious Ventures), we created this video to share the experience with you all. Enjoy!

I shared this fun weekend with some other great folks.  Check them out on Instagram… @bertymandagie@themandagies@emilymandagie and @luckyalexandra.

Crystal Mountain Resort is one of the best mountains to ski or snowboard in the area. Check out my video about skiing Crystal here.
