Spanaway City Guide
Spanaway, Washington is a small town (“census-designated place,” officially) with a population of 27,227 that is near Parkland and about 14 miles south of Tacoma. Just because you haven’t heard of this idyllic place doesn’t mean that others haven’t—Spanaway is a song (by The Movielife), an album title (from Seaweed), and is mentioned in another song (Neko Case’s “The Needle Has Landed”). Now don’t you wish you lived here?
If you think that small towns don’t see a lot of action, you may be surprised to learn that in 1951 Lieutenant John W. Hodgkin flew his Piper J-3 Cub aircraft from Spanaway Air Strip to the top of Mt. Rainier and was immediately taken to task by the federal court for landing in a national park.
Have a light aircraft and don’t know where to store it during those months when you’ve been banned from flying it due to unlawful landings? Keep it safe and protected in a convenient self-storage facility in town!
Take the whole family to Spanaway Park, located at Lake Spanaway, where you can swim, fish, rent a boat, hike and picnic, or City Goat Farm & Zoo, a petting zoo where you can also rent goats (but only for brush clearing, apparently). End the day at the Y Sports Bar & Grill, which features live bands or DJs, dancing, and great food, or Uncle Sam’s American Bar & Grill, a fun dive bar with live music and awesome eats.
If you’re willing to take a 20-minute drive, there is much more to do. Check out Painting Event with a Glass of Wine in nearby Sumner where, true to its name, you will have loads of fun learning to paint while sipping a glass (or three) of wine. Get scared out of your pants on a 90-minute guided tour at the Downtown Tacoma Ghost Tour. Or revisit your youth (or your parents’ youth) at Rollin’ 253 Skate Center where you’ll roller skate to some classic ‘80s music.
Don’t clutter up your home—rent a self-storage unit for your band’s equipment, your sports gear, your wine collection, or all the ghosts that follow you home.
