Life in this part of Tacoma can best be described as an example of the uptown city experience. As a current resident and registered college student, the majority of my time is spent in the downtown, or new Tacoma, area; so, my familiarity with the district is limited to the late afternoon to the late night hours. However, I have noted that the nightlife around the area can range from bustling - especially during holidays - to nonexistent, primarily consisting of members of the homeless population in quieter times of the year. Though the area is up and coming, with newer businesses in operation, there still exists a surprising degree of not only poverty, but homelessness as well.

I've lived in NE Tacoma now for the past 10 years and enjoy it so much I'm now raising my children out here. My son is enrolled in the local elementary school and I'm very involved in the PTA. currently serving as the Treasurer. It's a great neighborhood that is centrally located between Tacoma and Seattle with easy access to the freeways and public transportation. There a lots of families in this area and public places to enjoy with your kids. The beaches and parks are beautiful and easy to visit. There are lots of shopping opportunities both in Tacoma and Federal Way and during the summer months there are various farmers markets to visit for our local's finest. I really can't see myself living anywhere else and recommend everyone to visit!
I grew up in NE Tacoma. Growing up here was a great experience because there were so many connections in the community. It feels like a small town inside of Tacoma. Between Schools, Sports Teams, Church and the community center, you feel like you knew someone everywhere you went. It is great being within a mile from the Puget Sound with so many things to do and be active on the Sound or on land. There are also many annual traditions for families, like fun runs, Salmon Bake, Fishing Derby, Ladies night out, Christmas lighting of the tree, 4th of July Fireworks on the water and so much more. I grew up with so many friends from Kindergarten through High School and that gave me the confidence to excel in so many areas and have life long lasting friends. I would highly reccomend living in Browns Point, (NE) Tacoma
