A city and port on the coast of Puget Sound in the west central part of the state of Washington. Tacoma is the seat of Pierce County.


Harbor tug Tacoma, often misspelled Takoma, was renamed Sebago (q.v.) in December 1899 to free the name Tacoma for the protected cruiser scheduled to be constructed.
