Tacoma, a green destination for your course

Tacoma is the third largest city in Washington and is only 55 km from Seattle. With the backdrop of Rainier Mountain, you can enjoy the sublime natural environment during your stay with ELS. You really can enjoy a breath of fresh air: go hiking in the mountain region of Rainier, experience kayaking and skiing if you are in Tacoma over winter. For something a little closer to home, take a stroll along Ruston Way, a coastal area that has many parks, restaurants, and beautiful beaches. Make sure you take advantage of the pristine reef by going diving during your stay!

A linguistic and cultural experience

In Tacoma, you will experience the wonders of urban life, including a vibrant arts and culture scene. Make sure you visit the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts, which includes three theaters, or the Tacoma Dome which hosts many concerts, football and hockey matches. The Museum of Glass is another must see in Tacoma: cross the unique glass bridge which was created by local artist Dale Chihuly, and connects you to all of the Museum District.
