Living in the north end of Tacoma is one of the best decisions I ever made. I am 5 minutes to the water front where I can walk the boardwalk and enjoy an amazing view, just 10 minutes away from downtown night life and some awesome unique restaurants, and another 10 minutes to 6th ave, lots of music venues, dive bars and cute shops. Its a pretty central spot. I am going to high light 5 of my favorite places and things to do in Tacoma (as of now…its forever changing…)
Located in Point defiance, Owen beach is an awesome place to relax by the water with friends and family. Have a BBQ, toss around a football, or just lay on a blanket.
Check out a Rainiers Game
The Tacoma Rainiers are a Minor League Baseball team that plays in the Pacific Coast League and is the Triple-A affiliate of Major League Baseball’s Seattle Mariners. Check out a game on any thirty Thursday fpr $2 beers, hot dogs and tacos. Check out this years schedule for game times.
Jazzbones is located just off of 6th ave. The thing we love about Jazzbones is that they offer a variety of entertainment for all different crowds of people. From stand up comedy to a live raggae band, there is something for eveyone. be sure to check out their website for updates on events coming up.
This is a newer addition to the Stadium District in Tacoma, and i am loving every second. Plan ahead because you might find trouble parking! A Bavarian-inspired restaurant with modern takes on classic German fare, 2 full bars, 24 drafts and 4 indoor bocce ball courts. Bring your friends and make a night of it. Check out the menu to know what your getting yourself into.
TOP OF TACOMA
The top is one of my favorite places to eat. Their tacos are amazing, their breakfast on the weekends are to die for and the atmosphere is pretty awesome as well. Its definitely a dive bar so if you are into that you will be in heaven. I love the chill vibe and awesome people that go there. The night never ends bad. This place is packed for happy hour and ESPECIALLY Taco Thursday! Check out their menu.
