If the sun is out, follow the locals and head outside to the nearby green spaces. Nature lovers will enjoy a visit to the W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory. There is a relaxed atmosphere here and well-tended garden beds and trees.
Sports fanatics should book tickets for nearby Cheney Stadium to see the Tacoma Rainiers doing battle with visiting teams. On game days the stadium becomes a sea of red, white and blue, as local baseball lovers join together to get behind their beloved team.
