About Pierce County
Tacoma-Pierce County has been named one of the most livable areas in the country. Outdoor recreational opportunities are endless in our year-round temperate climate. In addition to walking and running, fishing, hunting, boating, water-sports, camping, downhill/cross-country skiing and golf are here to be enjoyed. Pierce County is one hour away from Mt. Rainier National Park, two hours away from the beautiful Pacific Ocean and two hours away from the hot desert and fertile plains of Eastern Washington. The Lakewood/Tacoma area is culturally diverse and well represented with churches, social organizations, shopping opportunities, restaurants, theaters, museums, etc. We have been in this community since 1971 and feel that it is one of the most attractive and desirable areas in which to live and practice.
