If you’re looking for attractive apartments for rent South Sound Washington is a perfect choice, especially the Tacoma area.

Currently, Tacoma has over fifteen unique neighborhoods and districts. But here are a few of the city’s most attractive locales:

Museum District

This district is home to four museums and a host of outdoor art installations, including Dale Chihuly’s “Bridge of Glass”, which connects Tacoma’s Museum of Glass to downtown Tacoma.

The Museum District at Union Station features three museums: the Washington State History Museum, the Museum of Glass, and the Tacoma Art Museum, in the span of a few blocks. The district also displays outdoor art installations.

Stadium Historical District

This district is named after the 100-year old Stadium High School, one of Tacoma’s oldest and prettiest landmarks. The school has also left its mark on American pop culture, being the distinctive backdrop for the 1999 romantic comedy Ten Things I Hate About You.

The district itself offers exceptional views of Commencement Bay, impressive architecture, and scenic floral displays.

Proctor District

This three-block district hosts a variety of specialty shops, restaurants, and entertainment. This small-town feeling is even more enhanced by the neighborhood’s frequent special events and festivals, including the popular Proctor Farmers Market, Arts Festival, Junior Daffodil Parade, and Proctor Treats.
