What is a Nearcation?

With 2020 in the rear-view mirror, staying home this summer is NOT an option. And, as local travel becomes safer, you've probably noticed that airline tickets, resorts, and rental cars are in short supply (or super expensive). Why not pack up the car and plan an amazing Nearcation to beautiful Lakewood, Washington?

With fourteen public parks and eleven natural areas, Lakewood has over 600 acres of outdoor spaces. You'll also find more than 165 restaurants (including an amazing International District) and over 500 shops (including Lakewood Towne Center). This website is your guide to golfing getaways, foodie adventures, outdoor outings, and historic tours in the South Sound (including Lakewood, Steilacoom, DuPont, Puyallup, and Tacoma).
