Seems like just a few months ago we were reporting Tacoma’s inclusion in a national magazine for being a hip place to be. Now we’re back on the list — for the top 25 arts cities for American Style magazine.

The mag, which covers art, culture and travel from the collector’s point of view, lists its city picks annually in three divisions. In the mid-size-city division, Tacoma came in at number 13, beating out St. Louis, MO and Athens, GA. Buffalo, NY headed the list. In the big city division, Seattle came 7th and Portland 11th, while New York, NY came top (no surprise there) and Santa Fe clocked in at the top of small cities (also no surprise.)

Way to go, Tacoma!
