Over the past 17 years, Tacoma’s Museum Row, along Pacific Avenue, has developed into a place to spend a pleasantly informative, dawdling day.

All that got even more revved up last year with the opening nearby of LeMay — America’s Car Museum, one of the nation’s more distinguished collections of fantastic fins, gorgeous grills and generally amazing automobilia (www.lemaymuseum.org).
Getting there: Park at Sound Transit’s Tacoma Dome Station (Exit 133 from I-5), within walking distance of the car museum, and catch the free Tacoma Link light rail, which follows Pacific Avenue into the city to put you within a short walk of all four other museums.
