You don’t have to travel far from your new home to find arts and culture. Just north of the Tehaleh® community, Bonney Lake offers various museums of interest, a historical society, a range of performing arts and theater. The Puyallup Fair exhibits the artistic talents of individuals from all over Washington state and beyond. Artists enter their handiwork in a variety of categories. Promoting diverse artistic culture, Arts Downtown, Puyallup's Outdoor Gallery, curates a rotating and permanent collection of quality art by professional, emerging, and student artists.
The Seattle arts and culture scene is thriving with more than its fair share of artistic endeavors − from galleries and art museums to coffee and music culture.
After a tour of the Seattle Art Museum, why not check out a local beanery? While Seattle is the well-known home of Starbucks, its streets are thick with independent coffee shops, many of which roast their own coffee. But you never have to go further that The Post for a cup of Joe at our own Caffé D’arte.
And if you like music, you're in luck. Seattle has a lively club scene and venues of every scale, from stadium to hole-in-the-wall. Check out the Experience Music Project (EMP),a one-of-a-kind music museum combining interactive and interpretive exhibits to tell the story of the creative, innovative, and rebellious expression that defines American popular music.
Summer festivals are not to be missed, offering a range of activities, from Seafair's hydroplane races to Bumbershoot's alternative music and film festival in September.
Known as the City of Destiny, Tacoma is the second largest city in Puget Sound and was named after nearby Mount Rainier, originally called Mount Tacoma. Located just 20 minutes northwest of the Tehaleh® community, Tacoma is a mecca for shopping, casual and fine dining, cultural centers, outdoor recreation, and sports. Home to the state’s highest density of historic and art museums, don’t miss the Tacoma Museum of Glass, LaMay Car Museum, or the Tacoma Art Museum (TAM), the biggest outside of Seattle. While you’re there, take in a ballet, an opera, or the symphony. From indie bookstores to organic produce, rare teas to antiques − you’ll find it in nearby Tacoma.
