Wouldn’t it be great if you could find a home that was equally economical, charming and conveniently located? Look no further, because you’ve found it! Below is insider information on local amenities, including some of the sellers favorite restaurants, meals and parks. 🙂 

If you’re looking for a new place to take a stroll, don’t miss Wapato Park – an urban park featuring woodland area, a lake, walking trails & a dog park. There is also a historic pergola. Wapato has a number of trails, including one circling the lake, which is .9 miles in length. This stunning park is quite refreshing and just a mile away. 

Take advantage of having the South Tacoma Library less than 2 miles away, your paper filled destination for spring break! Are you having a hard time deciding what to read next? Check out their staff picks list or join their book club – they’re currently reading Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly. Don’t miss out on their other events, like Preschool Storytime and Poetry in the Park.

Had a busy day and didn’t plan for dinner? The seller has you covered with their top places to dine (including their favorite dishes!) All less than an 8 minute drive away! Taqueria El Rinconsito serves up a tasty pollo asado, so flavorful and tender, the meat falls off the bone – you also can’t beat the price of $5.99. If you’re craving a burger, shake and fries, Jubilee Burger is known for their crinkle-cut fries, soft-serve ice cream cones, 9 different milkshake flavors + their popular Smitty Burger built on a French Roll and served with spicy cajun mayo. Just off Tacoma Mall Blvd you’ll find Peanut Sauce Thai Cuisine. The seller recommends their pineapple fried rice – stir-fried rice with mixed vegetables, egg, onion, tomatoes and pineapple. Or try one of their many traditional Thai dishes. You won’t be disappointed!

And last, but not least, Top of Tacoma – a down-to-earth tavern supplying drinks & casual chow till late night, with happy hour twice daily. The seller recommends the nachos! Topped with cheddar and jack cheeses, olives, pickled jalapenos, red and green onions, and are baked on a small sheet tray. The cheese gets nice and melted and the chips a little extra crunchy. Plus, you can get them with adobo shredded chicken, Mexican style chorizo or adobo marinated steak. They’re great for sharing with friends!

If you want to stay in and cook, the nearest grocery store is Safeway, less than a mile away. Just a mile farther, you’ll find the Fred Meyer shopping center.

If you’re a commuter, this will be a convenient location for you. JBLM is 13 miles away, Olympia is less than 30 miles away and Seattle is around 40 minutes (that is without traffic!)

The neighborhood favorite, Josefina’s Mexican Restaurant – is so close you can practically reach out and touch it! Family owned, friendly staff and consistently serving tasty margaritas. Which are perfectly paired with Chips, refritos and handmade salsa. The sangria is homemade as well, which is especially refreshing in the summer!

Speaking of summer, imagine it’s one of those hot, August days and hanging out in the backyard just isn’t cutting it. Minutes away is Stewart Heights Pool – 160 foot Water Slide, Lazy River, Zero-depth entry, Bubble Pool, Water Play Structure, Water Basketball, Tumble Buckets. It’s a fantastic community hub to lounge about, sip some homemade lemonade, and dip your toes in the pool. And have you ever witnessed a fluffy, Corgi swimming? It’s quite comical! Not many know this, but at the end of every summer, before they clean out the pools, they have a Pooch Pool Party! It’s a fun place to take your furry friends to cool off and take a swim. 

Maybe you’re not in the mood to bask in the sun, but rather window shop and enjoy a little sweet treat? There’s a ton of shops and dining along Pacific Ave, but one of the local favorites is Connie’s Donuts & Espresso. Her donuts are almost too pretty to eat… Almost. 😉 Whether, you have a hankering for an apple fritter, something cream filled (she’s got 6 tasty filled options!), or just a simple cake donut, Connie’s has something for everyone and is a short 9 minute walk away.

Perhaps you’re thinking of checking off a few boxes on that growing “to do” list or you have a hankering to add some fun flare to your home. Head straight to Earthwise Architectural Salvage. A retail warehouse full of both vintage and new doors, windows, lighting, hardware and lumber. They also offer a diverse assortment of architectural antiques including stained glass, wrought iron, pillars, posts, and columns. It’s the kind of place that helps all those Pinterest boards you have, come to life!

Do you commute to work? If so freeway access is within close proximity. Along the freeway and close by is the Tacoma Mall – just a 5 minute drive away. The Tacoma Mall is the largest shopping center in Tacoma and has over 150 stores and restaurants. This location is also close to Costco for all your bulk food and home shopping needs.

Schools for this location are – Mary Lyon Elementary (getting fully remodeled this year), Lincoln High School and Stewart Junior High, which just went through a complete remodel and is making great strides in education. The historic brick building was preserved completely while the Inside was completely remodeled; offices, classrooms, library, lunchroom, gymnasiums and hall spaces. The grounds were redone to include better parking and traffic flow along with a new turf field and rubber track. Stewart Middle School has many after school programs for students, most held in their well known DAVinci lab like, art, music, dance, social wellness, fitness, brotherhood, bicycles, and so much more including homework help every day. Stewart has received a state grant that will allow them to implement several strategies to help students succeed throughout middle school and into high school. Read more here about their Panther Pride Program.
