Get to Know this Neighborhood

Years ago Puget Sound University changed their name from University of Puget Sound, but that doesn't stop Tacomans from calling the neighborhood around the private liberal arts college "UPS." The UPS Neighborhood is known for tree lined streets, craftsman homes, and lovely parks.

Why this Neighborhood is so Great

UPS is located between the Proctor District and Tacoma's 6th Ave. Folks living in UPS can easily get to some of the best local businesses, restaurants, and grocery shopping in town on bike, foot, or car.

What the Neighbors are Saying

We asked the UPS Neighbors what they like about the neighborhood. Their comments will go here.

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.

Tiffany

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.
