Make plans now to visit historic Tacoma, Washington, as part of a one-day coach tour with Historic Seattle. The excursion will explore the city’s late 19th-century warehouse district, where many historic brick buildings have been converted for new purposes, including a campus for the University of Washington and new space for the Washington State History Museum.
Other stops include visits to the 1913 Swiss Hall, the French chateau-inspired Stadium High School, and residential districts in North Tacoma, where several private homes will be open by special arrangement. The trip costs $150 for members. (206) 622-6952, historicseattle.org
