Best Happy Hour and Weekend Fare - Top of Tacoma is just a mile away and is a fun bar/tavern experience. It has some of the most unusual, unique, and best-tasting foods around. Definitely not your standard bar fare. Bonus - they have happy hours twice a day! Their dining experience inside has changed, so if you aren’t ready to dine out yet, you can order takeout like their Bluey Lewis Chicken Sandwich, Turkey Burger with Truffle Aioli, and other delicious burger and sandwich combos (check their Facebook page for updates!)
Just a mile away and practically in your backyard is the Swan Creek Park & Trail. This 373-acre park is great for walking and mountain biking, a community garden, a wooded canyon, and an upland forest. The river features salmon, the walking trail is 3.7 miles, dogs are allowed but must be leashed and this area is open year-round.
Swing by LUX Coffee, a neighborhood coffee shop for espresso, pastries, art, and whatnot on McKinley Hill.
You’ll be happy to know that the Eastside of Tacoma just got a Community Center - a spacious pool that’s great for laps, there's a fun slide, diving board, spray features, climbing wall, and water vortex, hot tub, aqua zip, and a more. You can book pool parties, and partake in some water exercise and swimming lessons AND it’s affordable! Playing in the water isn’t the only thing you can do here; they also have a Metronome Coffee shop, basketball court, recording studio, training kitchen, social hall, fitness area, and a dance room. While this new center is focusing on safe spaces for youth to go to, it will serve the entire community. More info on how the Eastside Community Center came to be.
If you’re looking for hard-to-find international items that local grocery chains don’t carry, you’re in luck – there are several stores with fresh produce and food. If you’ve ever wanted to try Jackfruit, the East Asia Supermarket carries them and is just 2 blocks away! Four blocks away is the Hong Kong Supermarket where you can buy whole roasted duck and pork, delicious Mooncakes – traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival, kitchen gadgets you didn’t think you needed and an assortment of sauces to make any Asian dish more authentic.
