"Great on weekends"
The University of Washington's Tacoma campus and the museums breathed new life into this part of downtown. I love eating at the Harmon brewpub - great garlic fries and fun decor. We came very close to getting an apartment at the Harmon Lofts but decided against the high rents and opted to buy a house instead. Still, we like coming down here for the great museums (Museum of Glass, Washington State History Museum, Tacoma Art Museum), food (Indochine - yum, Melting Pot), and shops. I always get Valentine's Day, Mothers' Day, and birthday flowers for my wife at Grassi's. Living in this neighborhood? Well, it's priced out of my range. Great place to visit.
