Stadium/Seminary District (National Register): one of Tacoma’s earliest residential neighborhoods with outstanding examples of high style homes from the late 19th to the early 20th century, read more about Tacoma’s Stadium District here.
The Stadium District has just about everything you could ask for and is only 4 minutes away. The seller left you, dear reader, a little tip on the the best places to dine, “Rhein Haus is a stone’s throw away, their giant pretzels are ridiculous. Additionally there is a local tavern, Hank’s, that makes a mean pizza pie.” Some other eateries and amenities that you should know about are - Parkway Tavern, Indo Asian Street Eatery, Shake, Shake, Shake, Art House Cafe, La Bella Nail Spa, The Copper Door, Stadium Thriftway, Morrell’s Dry Cleaners, King’s Books and so much more!
7 floors of fun at the newly restored McMenamins Elks Temple! Events have been cancelled at this time, but they have spacious outdoor seating, takeout & delivery, outside seating at the Spanish Bar, and they’re offering special for overnight stays Sun-Thur if you’re looking for a little staycation.
Now you must be into cheesy things to dine at this next place - STINK Cheese-Meat and El Tufo Wine Bar is across the street and it’s the go-to place for cheese lovers. This cafe serves meats, cheeses & creative sandwiches with an adjacent wine bar and offers Spanish tapas. I recommend the 5 cheese plate and the meat plate, because you can never have enough of those two things. It’s creamy with a little sweetness and savory accompanied with a little brininess. Cleanse your palate with one of their many Spanish wines.

Wright Park is ideal for a leisurely stroll or a quick jog, and is very popular in the summer months as it has a sprayground, playground and plenty of picnic tables. This 27 acre arboretum is home to a rich collection of more than 600 trees - stunning in both the spring & summer when they’re ample and bright green, and impressive in the fall as they change from green to feuille-morte of autumn foliage.
