West of Tacoma—just past Fircrest—is the city of University Place. Taking its name from the University of Puget Sound, this beautiful suburb has quickly grown into a thriving city in the South Sound area. Featuring a diverse array of shopping centers, grocery stores, and restaurants, University Place combines small-town charm with big city amenities, all set within Pacific Northwest surroundings!
Much like its neighbor Tacoma, University Place has an abundance of parks, beaches, and areas for outdoor recreation. From the popular Titlow Beach and Park to the regionally renowned Chambers Bay Golf Course, there is no shortage of opportunities to take in University Place’s natural beauty!
