People living in Downtown Tacoma neighborhoods tend to feel a strong sense of ownership. Getting to know people is not hard, and there are few barriers to participating in civic and community life. Tacoma is now a growing city, but the struggle of Tacoma’s past gives it a character and self reflection that is rare in other cities.
People living in Downtown Tacoma neighborhoods tend to feel a strong sense of ownership which has lead to an almost village like vibe amongst the people who have settled there. Getting to know people is not hard, and there are few barriers to participating in civic and community life. Tacoma is now a growing city, but the struggle of Tacoma’s past gives it a character and self reflection that is rare in other cities. Tacomans are constantly asking themselves “Where are we going?” and “What kind of city do we want to be?” which shows how much control and ownership people in this city feel that they have over its direction and culture.
Downtown Tacoma is blooming with bars, coffee shops, new restaurants, theaters, museums, and more. Fun fact: We are second only to Washington D.C. for the highest number of museums per capita! Artists from around the world perform at the variety of historic theater venues like the Pantages as well as the iconic Tacoma Dome. Alma Mater is the place to be for great live music. The thriving Downtown Tacoma Farmer’s Market attracts the regions farmers to Broadway every Thursday in the spring and summer.
Homes in Downtown Tacoma range from Victorian & craftsman homes (mostly along the hillside and south part of Downtown) to new and historic condos and new construction townhomes. Tacoma's condo market is complex because of varying financing between buildings, so definitely make sure your agent is an expert!
Within walking distance to half a dozen great places to eat and three museums.
I own a business in downtown Tacoma. I most love the many owner operated businesses here, there is more of a sense of community than I have found in other cities. However, I do believe that the parking enforcement has made doing business in downtown very difficult.
I loved living downtown. I had a four block walk to work--I actually parked my car farther from the office than my apartment, so walking was always easier. The urban feel is great. Definitely feel "a part of it."
Easy to get to all the necessities (for us) - restaurants, things to do, nightlife AND they is constant improvement. The downtown area continues to be a beautiful area of Tacoma!
It is walkable! Love being able to walk to and from work, grab happy hour at nearby bars and restaurants, and walk a couple blocks to the downtown YMCA.
I loved walking to work and really anywhere! Easy access to restaurants, bars, etc. Also lots of new construction so buildings were clean and well appointed.
