Tacoma gets a bad rap as a beleaguered mill town known mostly for its distinctive 'Tacom-aroma,' a product of nearby paper mills. Its nickname, 'City of Destiny' – because it was Puget Sound's railroad terminus – once seemed a grim joke. But destiny has started to come through – renewed investment in the arts and significant downtown revitalization make it a worthy stop on the Portland–Seattle route.
