Learn about Tacoma’s historic Brewery District and walk along the Prairie Line Trial, Wednesday, April 15 from 5:15 – 6:30 p.m. The 1.5 mile walk, sponsored by KPG Inc, will start at the base of the UWT stairs at S. 19th & Pacific Avenue and end at the Harmon Brewery and Eatery for a beer tasting and social. The walk, led by Michael Sullivan, will take people back in time and highlight Tacoma’s historic breweries, buildings, and rail line in the Brewery and Warehouse Districts. There is no need to pre-register for the event, simply join Downtown On the Go at the meeting spot.
Walk Tacoma 2015, sponsored by CHI Franciscan Health, is a nine event walking series held on the first and third Wednesdays, from April through August. The fun themed walks, now in their sixth year, encourage people to enjoy downtown on foot by introducing new walking routes, and sharing information about the community and its history through the guided tours. The walks are scheduled at the lunch hour and just after work to encourage downtown employees to walk during their workday, whether it is to and from work or at a lunch break.
