For more outdoor fun - Washington water fans, look no further! Bust out your kayak, sand bucket, swimsuit or fishing rod, and head straight for Dash Point State Park!
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.
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.
Just 3 miles east, you’ll find theBrowns Point Diner - classic American food with hand dipped milkshakes. Or step intoThe Sandbar, an extension of the diner and a happy hour lounge for some appetizers, drinks and karaoke.
For your major grocery needs, QFC, Safeway and Fred Meyer are all 2 miles or less away. If you are looking for other dining or shopping options, Downtown Tacoma is about a 20 minute drive.
