Moving to Tacoma

Often referred to as the “City of Destiny” because it is home to the end of the Northern Pacific Railroad, Tacoma has seen monumental growth since it was incorporated in 1875. Starting out as little more than a small town with nothing but a post office in 1864, it now stands as the county seat of Pierce County and a popular urban port city.

The Tacoma population has experienced incredible growth over the past century expanding from a humble 36,000 residents in the year 1900 to a population of more than 205,600 people now, making it the third largest city in the state.

Moving to Tacoma? Here at All Ready Moving, we offer a crew of dedicated Tacoma movers who are fully prepared to help with each aspect of your move. Trust us to handle the transition whether you’re staying local or moving out of town.

Curious about Tacoma neighborhoods? Old Town is an eclectic neighborhood where the area was founded by Job Carr when he built the city’s first post office in this part of town. Downtown Tacoma offers the feeling of living in a tight-knit village of close friends and neighbors. While West End is a popular spot for college-age students who attend Tacoma Community College and the University of Puget Sound..

Tacoma boasts an atmosphere of music, art, and plenty of fun things to do. One of the most popular places around town is up on the northern tip of town where you’ll find Point Defiance Park, as well as Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. And arguably the most standout structure in Tacoma is the cone-shaped Museum of Glass, which features incredible seasonal art exhibits and frequent local events.

With tens of thousands of young students in the area, Tacoma schools make up a handful of local districts including Clover Park, Fife, Franklin Pierce, Tacoma, and University Place. Primary age children can attend the location nearest to them such as Chester H. Thompson Elementary or Lowell Elementary, while the city’s two top high schools are Franklin Pierce High and Washington High. Graduates in the city have the option of attending two 4-year colleges in Tacoma, including the University of Puget Sound and Pacific Lutheran University.

Would you like to know about Tacoma job opportunities? Though it’s not within city limits, the McChord Air Force Base holds the highest number of employees in the area with over 50,000 local positions. The city’s healthcare system hosts nearly 22,000 medical personnel between the MultiCare Health System and CHI Franciscan Health offices. As the Pierce County seat, the area also has a large number of government-related roles available.

Though Tacoma weather tends to be fairly humid with a good amount of precipitation, temperatures are comfortable ranging between 55°F-75°F during summer and 35°F-45°F in winter. Make sure to always have an umbrella handy as the area also gets about 41 inches of rain annually.
