Tacoma’s Triangle District Has A Near-Perfect Walkscore!

Located between the better known Theater District and the Stadium Neighborhood, the Triangle District offers urban dwellers a great mix of restaurants, entertainment and opportunities to imbibe! Homes in the Triangle District enjoy a WalkScore of  97, which is off-the-charts amazing!  (See the details of that score for yourself HERE). Just as a refresher, here’s why they call it the Triangle District:



Not familiar with the area? Let’s explore, starting with the Merlino Arts Building, which houses the fabulous Corina bakery and the Grand Cinema (which hosts all the movies fit to watch).

In the surrounding blocks, there are restaurants for every taste: Maxwell’s for fine dining, Infinite Soups for take-out, Stink for happy hour, Puget Sound pizza for late nights and early mornings. Just a little further down the hill you’ll find Opera Alley and Antique Row, both of which offer worthy retail options and are a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Within six blocks, you have a great grocery store in Stadium Thriftway, a local treasure in King’s Books, and plenty to drink at the Copper Door, Harmon Tap Room and of course, Doyle’s Pub.

If you’d rather be outdoors, you’re just three blocks from Wright Park, second only in size to Point Defiance. There is truly something for everyone to enjoy here, with festivals all summer, and a walking path and play area that are enjoyed year round. For a slightly longer stroll or ride, head over to the Thursday Farmer’s Market on Broadway.
