Maggie Schauble’s 4 Favorite Things About Spanaway

August 2, 2017

According to REALTOR® Maggie Schauble, Spanaway really started coming together in the late 1800s. Located in Pierce County just south of Tacoma, Spanaway is in a prime location that’s surrounded by convenience and things to do. If you’re considering moving to Spanaway (or even if you already live here!), take a moment to check out these 4 highlights about living in Spanaway:

1. Excellent location close to Tacoma and JBLM.
For those who work at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Spanaway is a popular place to live in since it’s right next door to the military base. Spanaway is also just south of Tacoma, making it easy to commute there for work, shopping, or other activities.

2. Wide selection of delicious restaurants.
Spanaway is home to some fantastic dining options! Maggie especially recommends Samurai’s Japanese Steakhouse, Umai Bento for sushi, and Tonala Mexican.

3. Beautiful outdoor opportunities.
Locals love hanging out at Spanaway Lake, whether they’re enjoying the beautiful 135-acre park, boating, fishing, swimming, or just having a picnic on the shore. Lake Spanaway Golf Course is right next door, a picturesque course that golf enthusiasts will enjoy having close to home. Bresemann Forest is another local destination with 70 acres of nature trails to explore, and Harold E. Le May Skateboard Park at Sprinker Recreation Center is another popular hangout. SPIRE Rock is also at Sprinker, and this man-made rock formation is perfect for learning how to climb!

4. Fun indoor activities you can enjoy all year long.
Not only is Sprinker Recreation Center home to great outdoor activities, but the center offers an NHL regulation ice rink, indoor tennis courts, and more indoor activities that can be enjoyed all year long! Another excellent indoor destination is the LeMay Collection at Marymount, a must-see for vintage car lovers.
