Browns Point is situated on the eastern side of the entrance to Commencement Bay, which leads south from Puget Sound to the busy Port of Tacoma and has a little bit of fun history behind it. In 1887, two years before Washington became a state, a fixed white light lens lantern was placed on a white post on Point Brown. It was about twelve feet above sea level and 50 yards from the low water end of shore. In 1901 the first lighthouse and a house for the lighthouse keeper were built, which today is known as the Browns Point Lighthouse Park - a popular outdoor spot for locals and provides the community waterfront access, enticing beachcombers year round and sunbathers and picnickers during the summer. A large green space makes this a nice spot for a picnic as you watch the deep-sea ships entering Tacoma's busy portal.
The Cliff House Restaurant is just 7 minutes away along Marine View Drive and serves up Pacific Northwest seafood, steaks & pasta served in an elegant dining room with sweeping Sound views. The crab and artichoke dip is a highly recommended appetizer to share while waiting on entrees. Most reviews you'll find don't mention that this is a kid friendly establishment. A pro tip though - be sure to make reservations if you'd like to nab a table with a view of the water.
For your major grocery needs, QFC, Safeway and Fred Meyer are all 3 miles or less away. If you are looking for other dining or shopping options, Downtown Tacoma is about a 20 minute drive.
This home sits near the North Shore Public Golf Course featuring a fun, yet challenging, well-manicured 18-hole public course. Players of every level can enjoy golf at North Shore. On The Greens Restaurant, perfect for a pre- or post-round meal, features a delightful menu of American fare.
If you find that you need a cocktail after a relaxing spa day, the Pimienta Bistro and Bar is just next door. This restaurant is a fusion of Modern European and Latin American Cuisine. Snack on fried chile lime Tajin chickpeas or go all in with the Paella Valenciana - full of lobster meat, prawns, scallops, clams, chorizo, chicken and saffron rice; so flavorful! And don’t miss their Around the World dinners - every third Thursday of the month featuring a four-course meal.
