Gets around by: Bike, Walk, Car
Where do you live and where do you work?
I live in the Perkins Building across from the Post Office and 11th Street Bridge and work on the Foss Waterway at the Foss Waterway Seaport (a maritime heritage center) at 705 Dock Street. I am fortunate to live, work and play downtown and have an incredible sunrise view of the Port and Mt. Rainier.
How do you get there?
I walk, cycle and drive.
How does it all add up?
I believe that is the only place to live in Tacoma! I really miss the IGA and am a strong advocate the city to support a grocery store downtown which would increase “eco-density”. Right now I have to travel miles for a quart of milk!
What’s in it for you?
It is great to live, shop, work and play downtown both for me and the other numerous downtown residents.
Do you have any tips for people who may be trying these modes for the first time?
Get familiar with the light rail, buses and train schedule and support your downtown merchants!
