The Tacoma Antiques Center at Fife Square

Reviewed By JALFAN - Sumner, Washington

My wife and I enjoy "antique stores" This no exception, the store is very well arranged. There is good lighting and makes it easy to see things. The venders have a wide selection of items. The staff is friendly and helpful. Note: they seem to run sales on holidays.

Pioneer Park

Reviewed By Roadtrip E - Auburn, Washington

Pioneer Park in the heart of downtown Puyallup is a great place especially for small kids on a summer day. There's a nice playground and a nice spray park. The park is adorned with dozens of the most beautiful hanging baskets you've seen. There are coffee shops right across the street and in the southeast corner is Giorgio's Greek restaurant. It's not big (one square city block by my estimation) but has lots of grassy areas, is crisscrossed with sidewalks, hosts a farmer's market and outdoor concerts. It's about five blocks north of the Puyallup Fair grounds. I won't give you much for the southhill part of Puyallup, but downtown still has that old small town feel and Pioneer Park adds to that feel.

Nightside Distillery

A small artisan distillery, Night Side Distillery is handcrafting the finest spirits imaginable, sourced from local Washington crops. Try the Lemon Drop and Apple Pie infused vodka. The Gin is special and - coming soon - Scandinavian Akavit.

Reviewed By Andy W - Kent, Washington

A group I belong to is seeking a local source for aquavit - a Norwegian drink. When I heard about this place, I needed to see what was going on. They've been distilling gin and infused vodka (try the Lemon Drop or Apple Pie) and have those available for purchase. For now, you can taste their aquavit but it's not yet available for sale. Bonus - they plan to age it in oak casks so that it picks up the oak color.
Raymond Bunk, the chief distiller, and his wife are enthusiastic and love showing off the still-small equipment and talking about spirits. If you're in the area, stop in! It's just south of the main Edgewood Crossroads in an industrial park.

Talk about a kid in a candy store. The LeMay Auto Museum is just nirvana for everyone who loves wheeled transportation in all its beautiful, strange, weird and kooky forms. LeMay is located in Tacoma in a really interesting free-form wood laminated building overlooking the harbor and next to the freeway -- easy to get to. It's not over priced like some museums because you can easily spend an entire afternoon swooning over classic cars, sports cars, cars with vintage pedigree in addition to some motorcycles and even electrics. My recent visit featured a nice collection of post-WWII vehicles that represented the Eisenhower era of my youth. Studebakers, Kaisers, Hudsons, Packards, etc. all gleamed in their deserved spotlight. It was a kick in the pants to revisit the marques that are long gone but not forgotten,
The LeMay is definitely worth a detour. And, enjoy lunch in the museum cafe while you are at it. Parking is free.

It is a surprisingly quiet place to eat. We had the hamburger and fries ($5.50 with fries). The fries are coated and crispy. They serve a container of catsup and one of mustard with the entrée. Burgers come with mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickle and onion. Also available are daily specials of hot foods served in a buffet type setting. Ordering is easy and service is good. A good place to take a break from Bingo/Slots.

Puyallup Farmers Market

Reviewed By Keleia - Maple Valley, Washington

We had a wonderful time at the Puyallup Farmers Market and really enjoyed the fact that ALL dogs are welcome! I will say that it was so nice to be there on a day when the weather was absolutely perfect. No rain, temperature was mild and very fun taking my service dog Pearl out with us. We picked up some organic skin cream, purchased some very nice wood cutouts from a vendor and special ordered an item to pick up in another week. I especially loved a vendor that sold Fair-Trade Baskets from Africa that are absolutely amazing. By purchasing through a vendor at the market, it helped to promote a cottage business as well. We had some ono Hawaiian/Polynesian food. Packed it up after seeing/purchasing what we wanted and headed for home. We went back one more time and even brought a friend. We plan on going again next year to see what's new! We do have a local Farmers Market (5 minutes from our home) but it was fun to check out some old stomping grounds from years ago. Terrific for singles, couples, families and friends. Can't say I was disappointed about anything! I'd even make the trip all by myself.

Allow a couple of hours to see everything and, if possible, do it on an escorted tour. The indepth explanations of species, origins, and subtle differences between different rhodies is fascinating. The indoor exhibit includes orchids. This is a totally pleasant walk and learning experience. There is a small gift shop.

Chihuly Bridge of Glass

Reviewed By Anna911 - Washington DC

As a huge fan of Dale Chihuly this bridge was a can't miss for me. In many ways it did not disappoint. The artwork itself is just stunning and you should take the time to see it both during the day and wanted to luminated at night. What is very frustrating is this year number of pieces especially in the wall where the lights have burned out. Weather this is the city of Tacoma or the Museum of Glass which is responsible someone needs to take better care of the lighting. But otherwise I walked along this bridge every single night that I was there because I thought the artwork was so special.
