Traveling in the Pacific Northwest
PLU is located in the greater Tacoma area, but the surrounding neighborhood is called Parkland. Parkland does not offer much in ways of shopping and attractions, but there are plentiful opportunities with only a short bus trip from campus.
Here you can find more information about the most popular places to visit in the area. It is by no means a comprehensive list of possibilities, but rather a place from which to start if you are interested in learning more about the area and what the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
