Historic waterfront, dining, shopping, attractions, parks, and services.

Old Town is the true birthplace of Tacoma. You'll find cobblestone streets, historic houses out of the 1800's as well as Tacoma's first church. Today, Old Town is a lively mix of contemporary office and retail establishments - a busy neighborhood center set within the backdrop of this historic landmark area. The Old Town district is a great place to come for fine dining, coffee or spirits, unique gifts, and a wide array of professional services.

Old Town Business DistrictOld Town is also the place where the green hills of Tacoma meet the blue waters of Puget Sound. The Ruston Way waterfront offers great dining and hospitality options. It's also a recreational haven, with walking, jogging, biking and in-line skating, all popular options for locals and visitors alike. Or if you're in a more tranquil state of mind, grab an espresso and relax for a while in one of several waterfront parks scattered throughout the district.

Old Town is proud of its heritage: witness the mural on North 30th Street and the historic walking tours. Visitors are encouraged to stop by the Visitor Center at the Job Carr Cabin Museum for additional information and brochures of nearby attractions.
