Get to Know Elbe

Elbe is a teeny tiny town located on the river on the road to Mt Rainier. For the purposes of this neighborhood we’re including the surrounding communities of Ashford, Echo Valley, and Alder Lake here. Someday we may break it out for you!

Why Elbe is so Great

Mountains, rivers, wilderness, and lakes. This is as beautiful and rugged as living gets in Pierce County. Nestled up against Mt Rainier National Park and far from the worries of town. Speaking of town, Tacoma is a little over an hour drive. So while there are people who commute from Elbe, Ashford, Alder Lake, et al – it is a bit of a drive!

What to do in Elbe

Fishing in the river, boating on the lake, hiking in the woods- these are obvious activities in this rugged part of Pierce County. Grabbing a Scaleburger, taking a train up the mountain, and exploring the country store are other great options.

Architecture

Like any city, Tacoma's architecture tells the story of the various generations that have called Tacoma home. This is as true for its neighborhoods, as it is for the city at large.

What the Neighbors are Saying
