Tacoma will always be a suburb of Seattle, not like it's a regional city like Spokane!
I won't be moving there!

The only thing Tacoma has over Spokane is a AAA baseball team. It would be great to watch players ready to break into the big leagues.


AAA baseball would be sweet, Jim.

Ahhh, Tacoma, the sweet aroma, and the city where my stolen car ended up burning in a ditch. The city with no shopping or restaurants downtown, the city where I crawl at 15 mph coming home from the fourth of July. How I love you, sweet Tacoma!


Yeah, The beauty of the I-5 corridor, the faint "wet dog and ass" smell from years of pulp mill be-foulery. Spokane downright sucks in comparison to Tacoma.


Downtown Tacoma is a lot of fun great pubs, restaurants, Chihuly Museum, and the Thea Foss Waterway. Having lived nearby I loved the urban environment of Tacoma, but access to the outdoors… if you don’t mind sharing it with a million other people and an a healthy commute. Oh, the pulp smell beats the rendering plant any day.

My experience with Tacoma is limited to a few visits downtown for business, but I always got the feeling that it was a city in waiting. They seem to have made some moves toward a rescpectable urban environment, but I feel their greatest draw at this point is potential - not execution.

I still prefer Spokane.
