Stretching between South Park and Oak Tree Park, South Tacoma’s Water Flume Line Trail offers the things that multi use trail fans love. This 2.5 mile (one way) trail connects to other trails and is great for walkers, joggers and cyclists!

The Tacoma Mall is just 5 minutes away. The Tacoma Mall is the largest shopping center in Tacoma and has over 150 stores and restaurants - shop & have a little lunch at Nordstrom. This home is also close to Costco for all your bulk food and home shopping needs.

Also close by is Marlene’s Market, a wonderful natural food store with organic salad bar, daily scratch made soups and delicious bakery items you can’t pass up!

Moctezuma’s Mexican Restaurant has amazing happy hour and margaritas, but you can also stay in and order take out for Taco Tuesday at home while you catch up on all your shows. And don’t forget to order dessert too - they have a tasty Mexican brownie that comes with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of kahlua cream sauce on top!

Commuting north? Consider parking and riding or walking to the Sounder Train, less than 2 miles away to the commuter rail station. It’s convenient, cheap (about $5 to ride) and less of a hassle than sitting in I-5 traffic for events or commuting! It will put you into downtown Tacoma, Seattle and a few places in between. And if you need to drive, freeway access to I-5 is just a minute away.
