The house is not the only charm­ing thing you’ll find at this address — it also hap­pens to be locat­ed near some of North Taco­ma’s most walk­a­ble neigh­bor­hoods (and they are pret­ty bike friend­ly too!) A few blocks South brings you right to the entrance of the gor­geous Uni­ver­si­ty of Puget Sound cam­pus. The onsite cof­fee shops and wind­ing paths are big draws for the neigh­bors all year round. Every spring UPS hosts a flea mar­ket with the Women’s League where you can find ven­dors sell­ing antiques, repur­posed items, vin­tage cloth­ing, jew­el­ry, bath and body goods and art­work. UPS also reg­u­lar­ly host nation­al speak­ers, con­certs and art exhibits.

To the East you’ll find the Three Bridges Dis­trict, where you can walk or bike to yoga, shops, bars, din­ing, parks and more! This area was apt­ly named for the 3 bridges that exist­ed between North Yaki­ma Ave and North Oakes Street. Only two bridges remain, the North 21st Street Bridge that car­ries cars over the gulch and the sec­ond bridge for pedes­tri­ans and bicy­clists on North Yaki­ma Avenue between North Fife Street and North Ander­son Street. 

Along North 21st Street is a great mix of inde­pen­dent retail­ers includ­ing: Wil­low Salon and Spa, Source Yoga, Magoo’s Ale House and Eatery, Evolve Home + Appar­el, Lou’s Bar­ber Shop, 21 Cel­lars, The Rus­tic Aris­to­cat Cof­fee Co, and The Beach House Salon. Ven­ture a few blocks fur­ther to find fresh, high-qual­i­ty from local farms at Dave’s Meat and Pro­duce. They also offer a small selec­tion of pro­duce, beer and wine, condi­ments and breads. 

Anoth­er great spot for cof­fee is Brewer’s Row, locat­ed less than a 12 mile away from your new home. Order an espres­so at the bar and then stay for a plate of S.O.B B&G — that’s split ched­dar bis­cuits with chori­zo-jalapeño gravy. Don’t miss out on their hap­py hour and deli­cious assort­ment of tacos: Al Pas­tor, Pol­lo, Car­ni­tas, Pesca­do, Carne Asa­da, Papas Dulce (roast­ed sweet pota­toes & kale) and Yaka (braised jack­fruit). You can also order chur­ros to go! 

Right next door you’ll find Cooks Tav­ern which is one of Taco­ma’s go-to spots for week­end brunch! They’ve got bis­cuits and gravy, eggs bene­dict and waf­fles — but their hash selec­tions is where it’s at. We rec­om­mend the house smoked corned beef, pota­toes, onion & kale with poached eggs on top. They also serve lunch and din­ner and hap­py hour is every­day from 3 – 5PM& 9 PM-to-close every­day. Don’t miss their rotat­ing menu fea­tur­ing inspired dish­es from oth­er coun­tries — right now the menu is all about Emil­ia Romagna, a region in North­east Italy.

The pop­u­lar Proc­tor dis­trict lies less than a mile North and is a great spot to grab gro­ceries at either The Met­ro­pol­i­tan Mar­ket, Safe­way or the Sat­ur­day Farmer’s Mar­ket. Don’t feel like cook­ing? You can try Knapp’s Restau­rant, Peaks & Pints Craft Beer Store, Pomodoro, Europa Bistro, East West, or Viva to name a few! For fam­i­ly fun, Proc­tor has The Blue Mouse The­atre, Chalet Bowl and the Waf­fle Stop, as well as local favorite Teach­ing Toys.
