Developed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Tacoma's historic North End offers a wide variety of architecturally significant homes - from modest workman's cottages to grand mansions. Anchored by the University of Puget Sound, the Proctor District features a wonderful mixture of locally owned shops and restaurants including Metropolitan Market, Chalet Bowl and the historic Blue Mouse Theater - the oldest continuously operating movie theater in Washington State. The North End offers easy access to Point Ruston and the waterfront, with 2 miles of paved walkways, stunning water views, picnic areas and a fishing pier. The area's natural assets also include Point Defiance Park - a 702-acre urban oasis with a zoo and aquarium, extensive gardens, an old growth forest, hiking and running trails and a saltwater beach.
