Best Western with Onsite Grill and Steam Room near Thriving Cultural District
Tacoma, Washington, was dubbed the City of Destiny after it was selected as a western terminus for a major transcontinental railroad in 1895. Thanks to an ongoing cultural renaissance, the city is finally living up to that name. A handful of gems have sprouted up over the past 20 years, such as the Museum of Glass and the Chihuly Bridge of Glass—a dazzling, 500-foot elevated walkway designed by Dale Chihuly that links the museum to more of his work at the downtown Tacoma Art Museum. These new attractions are a reflection of Tacoma's urban renewal, and are all located within 2 miles of the AAA Three Diamond–rated Best Western Plus Tacoma Dome Hotel.
The hotel's onsite restaurant, Seasons Grill, serves classic all-American fare such as a 12-ounce rib-eye steak or creamy Cajun chicken penne pasta bowl that comes topped with tomato, basil, and green onions. In the morning, a complimentary hot breakfast includes scrambled eggs, fruit, and build-your-own waffles. A free local shuttle will deliver you to a handful of offsite dining spots, too, including an award-winning microbrewery and a landmark steak-and-seafood restaurant overlooking Puget Sound.
Back at the hotel, cap off a workout session with a stint in the steam room or victory laps in the elevator. There's also a game room with vintage arcade games, and you'll find a movie selection up in your room. Most guest rooms feature views of the mountains, the Port of Tacoma, or downtown.
Tacoma, Washington: Port City with Thriving Cultural District and World-Class Aquarium
Tacoma is a midsize city located 30 miles south of Seattle on Puget Sound. It boasts the state's largest port, a rail terminus, and a free downtown streetcar. After the early 1990s, the city reinvented itself as a cultural and intellectual hub, adding a University of Washington branch campus, a thriving museum district, and a rejuvenated waterfront to its formerly industrial landscape.
Located less than a mile from the hotel, under the backdrop of Mount Rainier, the Museum of Glass houses stunning glass structures such as the Chihuly Bridge of Glass, and a 90-foot, cone-shaped studio where artists put on live glass-blowing demonstrations. At LeMay – America’s Car Museum, a nine-acre campus features an extensive collection of classic cars, trucks, and motorcycles.
The city is also anchored by several longstanding attractions, such as Point Defiance Park, a 700-acre peninsula jutting out into Puget Sound. While beautiful flower gardens, hiking trails, and paved bike paths draw crowds year-round, the park's most popular attraction remains the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. Exhibits here include an Asian forest sanctuary, a saltwater polar bear pool, and a tropical coral reef aquarium that's home to dozens of sharks.

The Groupon Guide to: Bricks
A strong foundation is important, and no foundation is stronger than one made of brick. Here are some brickbits (tidbits about bricks):
A brick is made of hundreds of thin, ceramic rectangles stacked on top of each other, so as long as you have hundreds of thin, ceramic rectangles laying around, you can easily make a brick.
Someone who misses a lot of basketball shots is called a "bricklayer" because a bricklayer is a hard profession and it's incredibly easy to make basketball shots.
Bricks sink in water, unless the water is frozen or the brick is really just a clump of human hair.
If you say "brick" really quickly, someone might not understand you at first and you'll have to say it again. If you don't say it again, you really missed an opportunity to discuss bricks and impress the other person with one of the brickhits (hard-hitting brick facts) that you learned here today.
