One of the most charming districts in Tacoma, the historic Proctor neighborhood is like its very own little town within a larger city. Residents love how easy it is to walk to grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants, boutiques and other locally owned businesses, and it’s a great spot to meet up with friends (and make new ones!) for a relaxing day of exploring.

Just down the street from Proctor is the University of Puget Sound, a small liberal arts college nestled within a residential neighborhood. The well-maintained campus—with its many paths, trees, and classic brick buildings—is open to the public, so whether you’re walking the dog or interested in attending a concert or lecture, the university is rife with opportunity!

The Proctor/UPS neighborhood is a popular choice for those looking for homes built from 1910 to 1950. Many also seek out the area due to its convenience: the neighborhood is simply a brief 10-minute drive to Downtown Tacoma, Interstate 5, or Gig Harbor.
