Pierce County

Pierce County, located in the western area of the state at the base of the Puget Sound, is second only to King County for the most populous county in the state of Washington. It’s largest city, which is also the county seat, is Tacoma, a city that is positively overflowing with historical and cultural attractions, as well as museums and parks, to give guests a fun and full trip while glamping in Pierce County. Start with Tacoma’s Museum of Glass, America’s Car Museum, Point Defiance Park, the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, the Working Waterfront Maritime Museum, the Washington State History Museum, and the Tacoma Art Museum, but don’t miss Fort Nisqually, the Bridge of Glass, and Mount Rainier National Park, too. Pierce County is also home to a thriving arts and culture scene, including some of the aforementioned museums and sites, as well as the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts, the Grand Cinema, the Speakeasy Arts Cooperative, and more. After seeing the sights in and around Tacoma, head out to one of the many islands that make up part of the county, and explore the Puget Sound—you can’t forget to take in all of the natural beauty and outdoor scenery, too, while luxury camping in Pierce County.
