Take in Tacoma
Mount Rainier, an icon of the Washington landscape, shows its peak among the distant clouds as my husband and I make our acquaintance with Tacoma.

It was ZZ Top and the Doobie Brothers — part of the Chateau Ste. Michelle Summer Concert Series — that lured my husband and me to the Seattle, Wash., region last August. If you like quality music and wine, you may want to add it to your bucket list.
