Tacoma's North Slope Historic District is a trapezoidal-shaped district bounded by North I Street to the north, Division Avenue to the east, and N Steele Street to the west. North Grant Avenue caps off the south end of the district, is one of the state’s largest historic districts, and has existed since 1888. There’s a sweet little 4th of July neighborhood parade that begins at the beautiful St. Patrick’s Church and ends at the North Slope Historic Park at K and 8th Street that shouldn’t be missed!
It’s grilling season and you won’t need to go far to get your fresh, high-quality & hard-to-find meat that comes from local farms. Dave’s Meat and Produce have been a long-standing staple in this neighborhood. They also offer a small selection of produce, beer and wine, condiments, and bread. On the weekends they have a burger & fries stand out front if you don’t feel like firing up the grill yourself.
Lander Coffee is a local favorite and is just a mile away. It’s bright, cozy, with a minimalist vibe, and friendly. When their shop opens again, it’s a great place to meet up with a friend or sit and catch up on a little work, and a little play area for kiddos. Get fresh pressed juices, get a jug of latte or cold brew to get you through that work-from-home week, and beans to make your own fresh pressed coffee at home.
