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!

The Stadium District has just about everything you could ask for and is only 4 minutes away. Rhein Haus is the best; their giant pretzels are ridiculously yummy. 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!

Close by is also the historical 3 Bridges District, you can walk or bike to yoga, shops, bars, dining, parks and more that surrounds this area! The 3 Bridges District was aptly named for the 3 bridges that existed between North Yakima Ave and North Oakes Street at least through 1969, according to map records in the Downtown Library. Only two bridges remain, but you can only drive across one – The N 21st Bridge that passes over the gulch, pedestrians and bicyclist can use the second remaining bridge on N Yakima Ave between N Fife and North Anderson St and the last bridge, according to records was a wooden bridge that existed along N Oakes and N 19th Street. This area is now overgrown with trees and bushes and became part of housing development.

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.

On the weekends they have a burger & fries stand out front if you don’t feel like firing up the grill yourself.

Go exploring through Ursich Park – it’s a wild and dense forest; full of native habitat. You just might spot this years batch of fresh fawns and urban deer bouncing through this gulch. The trail is only .5 miles long and a little strenuous, but it’s no worse than the steps getting down Puget Park.

Just across the way from Ursich Park is Old Town Park in the business district of Old Town, Tacoma. It has a newer playground, half basketball court, walkways, site furniture, shelter building and the Job Carr Cabin Museum. And from now through the summer you can enjoy free music in the park during the Old Town Concert series. Click here for the full lineup of local musicians and times.
