What do you know about Tacoma's history? Explore downtown Tacoma as you collect the answers to historical trivia in a race against time! Proudly sponsored by St. Joseph Medical Center, the annual Tacoma History Hike involves your entire family in learning more about our area in an effort to enjoy exercise and community-building. The hike begins at the Washington State History Museum and leads you to a variety of checkpoints within a 1.5-mile radius, allowing you to walk, run, or bike the course. Each checkpoint provides the answer to a question of Tacoma-related historical trivia. Collect as many as you can in the time allotted, and return to the Museum for music, awards, goody bags, and free admission to the museum. It's a fun way to spend the day with family and friends, rain or shine.
