July’s walk is a Museum Walk proudly sponsored by Rainier Connect, starting at 5:15 p.m. in front of the Children’s Museum of Tacoma (S. 15th & Pacific Avenue). The walk will highlight six downtown museums along the route – Children’s Museum of Tacoma, Tacoma Art Museum, Washington State History Museum, Museum of Glass, Lemay Car Museum, and finally, the Foss Waterway Seaport Museum.
On the Museum Walk, participants will walk with Jennifer Kilmer from the Washington State History Museum along Pacific Avenue, the Bridge of Glass, and Tacoma’s Waterfront, and learn about new exhibits and events at these impressive museums.
The walk will end at the Foss Waterway Seaport Museum, where the museum is generously hosting an after party. Though pre-registration is not required, more than 150 participants are expected to attend. The FWSM will provide appetizers and drinks, as well as live music and boat tours. The free walk and social event is an engaging event for all ages, and is a wonderful opportunity to brush up on Tacoma’s world-class exhibits.
Walk Tacoma 2016, sponsored by Puyallup Watershed Initiative Active Transportation COI, is a seven-event walking series held on first Wednesday of the month, from April through October. The fun, themed walks, encourage downtown employees and residents to exercise and enjoy the outdoors by discovering the different walking routes and parks in downtown Tacoma. The walks are scheduled at the lunch hour and just after work to encourage downtown employees to walk during their workday, whether it is to and from work or at a lunch break.
