Free downtown Tacoma Brewery District walking tour

Downtown On the Go (DOTG) will be holding a free walking event in Tacoma’s Brewery District on Fri., April 20, at noon. Walkers can choose from a “history walk” led by local historian Michael Sullivan or a “power walk” led by Janet Bissell with Metro Parks. The walk, sponsored by AHBL, is 1.79 miles in length and will start at the Swiss Building on S. 19th St. and Jefferson Ave. There is no pre-registration necessary.

The Brewery District to South Downtown walk is a part of “Walk Tacoma,” DOTG’s walking series, sponsored by Franciscan Health System and held in April, June and August. The fun, casual walks, now in their third year, encourage downtown employees and residents to exercise and enjoy the outdoors by discovering the different walking routes and parks in downtown Tacoma, and to become more aware of just how walkable downtown is.

Walking maps of all of the routes are available at no cost at DOTG’s office, located at 950 Pacific Ave., Suite 300, at many downtown businesses, or by contacting Meagan Kula, DOTG Coordinator, at (253) 682-1734 or .
