The 3rd largest city in Washington and home of the Tacoma Rainiers a triple AAA afilliate of the Seattle Mariners. Has one of the highest rates of car theft in the country and a burgeoning meth problem (thats only shadowed by Spokane's). There are many museums in Tacoma including a native american exhibit and some odd ones like a viper and beard museum.

Second largest city and urbanized area in the state of Washington. Largest port in the state. Currently experiencing a renaissance of its downtown area to give neighbouring city Seattle to the north a run for its money. Often joked about by Seattle but has much to offer. Aka, T-town.

Tacoma, Washington's undeveloped little brother. Home of the West coasts largest port, and also one of the nations highest public shooting rates. Home of Stadium High School, a high school that looks like a castle (refur to 10 things i hate about you) as well as five mile drive in lovely point defiance, which is mainly used to see how high you can get IN five miles. Has a weird smell as you cross 509 on a cold day. Beatiful area, except for Hilltop, which should be off limits to white people after dark (just for your protection). Tacoma, also rightfully refured to as Tacompton, as many upscale(and downscale) restruants and bars on its famed 6th ave. many historical events and buildings are in the area. I love this town you are close to the mountains and the water, you can go surfing and snowboarding in the same day.
Tacoma:Large city in Washington state south of Seattle.
Man 1: hey are you going to the mall today?
Man 2: na i wouldnt go there today, my buddy is going to shot it up today.
Man 1: o ok, well then, you want to go to school?
Man 2: i wouldnt do that either, i hear some asian is looking for some dude there.
Man 1: ok, your not leaving me with a bunch of options
Man 2: how about we just do some meth, steal a car and drive through five mile drive?
Man 1: DEAL!

Greatest city in the history of the world. Any person who grew up there will tell you that it's got a small-town feel with big city amenities. It doesn't barely smell at all, and hey, I've never been shot. Cut it a break once in a while.
"Where are you moving to?"
"Oh - are you packing your gun with you? Ha ha ha. Oh man, I'm so funny."
"Yeah, you keep think that Seattle is God's gift to hobos, okay?"

Often confused as the second largest city in the state of Washington. See spokane
Rob was born in Tacoma but raised in Spokane; two cities that struggle for rank, neither winners. This explains his identity crisis.
