Just a few blocks from the waterfront, local eatery Montamara Kitchen serves Valhalla Coffee — and a tasty brunch! Another local favorite is the The Spar Tavern – an iconic brick building perched on the corner of North 30th and McCarver. They have a coffee shop in front, and full seating around back, plus pool tables and live music on the weekends.
Directly in front of this home, you’ll find a little trail with easy access to the Old Town Park in the business district of Old Town, Tacoma. It has a newer playground, half basketball court, walkways, site furniture, shelter building and the Job Carr Cabin Museum. In the summer you can enjoy free music in the park during the Old Town Concert series. Click here for the full lineup of local musicians and times.
Practically in your own backyard — Go exploring through Ursich Park — it’s a wild and dense forest; full of native habitat. You just might spot a batch of fresh fawns and urban deer bouncing through this gulch. The trail is only .5 miles long and a little strenuous, but it’s no worse than the steps getting down Puget Park.
Plenty of dining along Ruston Way Waterfront — Katie Downs Waterfront Tavern (renowned for its deep dish pizza!), Duke’s Chowder House (great stop for happy hour) and long time favorite Harbor Lights .
Point Ruston also has the new La Paloma Artisan and Vintage Market — Don’t miss out on this weekend artisan & vintage outdoor shopping experience running now through October.
This home is also just minutes to plenty of dining options plus Century Theaters — roomy lounge chairs and free parking for movie patrons. Grab some affordable and popular fish and chips from The Daily Catch, an extension of WildFin American Grill where you can get a 2‑piece cod and chips is $7.99 and a 2‑piece halibut and chips is $12.99. The hardest decision is ketchup, tartar sauce our their homemade jalapeño aioli, all self serve. You can also find shopping & dining & entertainment – Jewel Box Café, Farrelli’s Pizza, Stack 571, Ice Cream Social and more on the way as this area keeps developing!
