Northeast Tacoma (also known as Browns Point) is located across Commencement Bay from Downtown Tacoma. Depending on where you’re driving from, commuting to Tacoma will take about 15-20 minutes. If you’re commuting to Seattle, Browns Point is as far north as you can live and still be in Tacoma.
Northeast Tacoma has the most planned communities of any neighborhood in Tacoma. Housing developments with sidewalks and winding roads are plentiful. Whether it’s a home on a cut-de-sac or a home with a view of the mountains, water, and sunsets, there’s something for everyone in Northeast.
Northeast Tacoma has plenty to do. When the weather is great you can head down to the beach around Lighthouse Park and watch the boats. The Centre at Norpoint has a gym and climbing wall for indoor fitness. Dine out at the Cliff House Restaurant and enjoying incredible views of the City of Tacoma skyline, rain or shine!
Many of the homes in Northeast are part of planned communities that were built in the 1990. There are also many homes built in the last couple of decades as well. Custom homes that take in the views of the mountains and water are plentiful, and you'll discover tons of variety in Browns Pointe.
The North End of Tacoma has gorgeous views of the Sound, great for walking, friendly neighbors. I love to eat out at Cook's Tavern and Ooh La La burgers.
Even if you're not paying for a great view with your mortgage, you can get a great view by walking a couple of blocks any day of the week. When I moved to this neighborhood I thought it seemed very remote and far from the action of 6th Ave and Stadium. But it's not actually very far from anything. It's very quiet and walk-friendly. Neighbors here know each other and check on each other. I can lie in my hammock in the backyard and feel like I'm camping in the woods, but I can also be at an art show at Alma Mater in less than 15 minutes.
It's very laid back, lots of variation in the houses, people seem very happy in the neighborhood and are mostly pleasant. It's a wonderful place to have children due to the close proximity to Pt Defiance, Ruston Way, and Proctor. The front yard gardens are the best in Tacoma.
I like that's a walkable neighborhood. We walk and ride bikes whenever we can, and even when we drive we don't go far. I also love that, while not every house has a water view, most people are only a few blocks' walk from seeing Commencement Bay, Mt. Rainier, the Olympics, and the port.
Beautiful views, pleasant neighbors, character and charm, family-friendly.
The neighborhood is a mix of older couples, young families and families who grew up in the area and have now returned to raise their families! Beautiful scenery from mountains, to water, to amazing parks! And a pretty amazing zoo that is almost literally in your back yard.
