A Day of Fun in Your Own Backyard

You don’t need to leave Tacoma to have a day full of adventure. Grab your Orca card, leave your car at the Tacoma Dome Station and get ready to explore Tacoma’s local attractions. 

Step 1: Start your day at the Tacoma Dome Station. Park your car and head out to the bus area in the front. 

Step 2: Fuel up for your day with coffee. Hop on Route #1 to Pacific Ave, where you can choose from Anthem, Starbucks, Lift Bridge and more 

Step 3: Hungry for more? Walk to Savor Creperie, Pacific Grill for a delicious brunch spread you won’t find anywhere else. 

Step 4: Next, walk up to the Commerce St. Transit Center, and hop on Route #11 or #16 to the Proctor District. Check out local shops like Fernseed, Megs & Mo Upscale Resale, Metropolitan Market, Compass Rose, the Pacific Northwest Shop, the Proctor Mercantile or Teaching Toys. If you’re there on a Saturday, be sure to stop at the Proctor Farmers Market for tasty treats. 

Step 5: From there, get back on Route #11 and ride down to Point Defiance Park. The options are endless – visit Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, stop and smell the Rose Garden, explore miles & miles of trails or check out the new Dune Peninsula Park. 

Step 6: When you’re ready for dinner, head to the Ferry Terminal to get on Route #10 to the TCC Transit Center. Transfer to Route #1, which will take you to 6th Ave and a variety of options. There’s something for everyone here! 

Step 7: Wrap up the night by getting back on Route #1. Choose to walk a short distance from Pacific Ave & S 24th St, or ride to Commerce Transit Center, and transfer to Route #41. This will take you directly back to your car at Tacoma Dome Station.

Trip Planner Tips - Entering Locations

To create a trip plan you need to enter both a starting location (origin) and an ending location (destination). For information about stops, schedules, or service at a specific location, you only need to enter one location.

The Trip Planner recognizes most street intersections and addresses as well as many landmarks in Pierce, King, and Snohomish Counties. If what you entered is not immediately recognized, the Trip Planner will offer you a list of options. You can choose one of the options, but if your intended location is not there, select the "Revise Original Entries" link to return to the entry page and change the entries you have already made.

Addresses

  • You don't need to type in the city along with the address. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type 110 Jones instead of 110 Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 1000 Main instead of 1000 S Main. But type 1000 West Viewmont for 1000 West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets and addresses are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby location, such as an intersection or a landmark.
  • You should not enter the suite number or apartment number.  Just the house number and street name (Example: type in 401 Broadway instead of 401 Broadway Avenue Suite 800).

Intersections

  • The "&" symbol is the only character used between two street names to show an intersection. (Examples: 1st & B, James & Madison)
  • You don't need to type in the city. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type Conifer & Jones instead of Conifer Circle & Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 3rd & Main instead of 3rd S & S Main. But type 34th & West Viewmont for 34th W & West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby intersection or a landmark.
