The Walk Tacoma Architectural History Walk kicks off the seven event 2017 Walk Tacoma Series sponsored by MultiCare and the Puyallup Watershed Initiative Active Transportation COI. The free walk series, held on the first Wednesday of the month, highlights different areas of downtown through themed, 1 – 2 mile walk events, led by local leaders, historians, architects, and artists. The walks are held at the lunch hour (12 – 1p.m.) and just after work (5:15 – 6:30 p.m.), and all evening walks include a social following the walk. This year, the Children’s Museum of Tacoma will be leading a children’s activity at each walk event, making it extra fun for all ages. Pre-registration is available at www.downtownonthego.com/go/walking or join DOTG at the start and sign-in when you arrive.
