The North Slope/Stadium District in Tacoma is plentiful in history, named after the Stadium High School, a historic landmark – It’s the closest we get to having our own Hogwarts Castle.  It was the filming location for many of the scenes in the 1999 movie 10 Things I Hate About You. It’s not the only thing to appreciate about this area though. There’s quick access to the waterfront, parks, dining and shopping a plenty!

The sellers specifically mentioned, “There are so many things to do in the area. Walk to Wright Park, Stadium, cycling to the waterfront and downtown Tacoma would have to be some of my favorites.”

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.

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!

Frisko Freeze a Tacoma landmark, quick-serve spot, with retro style & a choice of drive-thru or walk-up ordering and is in quick walking distance. If you have a hankering for a burger late at night, they have you covered!

If you need more options, head east down Division Ave, which will turn into 6th Ave, another Tacoma staple. Some honorable mentions include – MSM Deli (one bite and you’ll know why they’re called ‘Magical Sandwich Makers’!), Jazzbones – a great spot for taking in some music, Dirty Oscar’s Annex – not just for great cocktails, but they have a wicked brunch. Check their Facebook page for rotating specials and  The Red Hot – creative hot dogs and ample craft beers. Plus dozens of other amenities on 6th Ave you don’t want to miss out on!

I -705 is just 5 minutes away and it will give you easy access to I-5 and WA-16 for commuting.
