Out and About

The geographical region surrounding PLU is quite unique. For the outdoors enthusiast it offers everything from water to mountain treks, all close enough to reach within an hours drive or less. If you’re an urbanite who loves the feeling of community interaction, we are close to cultural entertainment Mecca such as Tacoma and Olympia. Even a visit to downtown Seattle is only a 45 minute drive north.

Everything you could imagine wanting to do in your spare time is all a few short miles away from the PLU campus. From museums, theaters and galleries in downtown Tacoma to non-stop events at the Western Washington Fairgrounds in Puyallup, to open-air wildlife experiences at Northwest Trek or the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium you’re sure to find something just for you.

Should you have more questions about local attractions or event going on during your conference, feel free to ask our conference staff for more detailed information or visit our local Visitor and Convention Bureau.
