The McKinley Hill Business District is located above the Dome on McKinley Avenue and is home to quaint shops, historic buildings, the McKinley street festival, and some of the best views of Commencement Bay. With sweeping vistas of the region, community pride runs deep in the McKinley Hill area – we are one of Tacoma’s oldest neighborhoods and on any given morning you can feel the community bond at “Fergies on the Ave,” a local diner that has been serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner for years.
McKinley Hill is home of the annual McKinley Arts and Street Festival–a community celebration of art, music and food. One of the area’s oldest chiropractic businesses can be found at the crest of McKinley Hill where Dr. Merry from McKinley Hill Chiropractic provides quality alternative care with just the right touch. Diversity is alive and well here on McKinley Hill as El Compadre Market and other businesses provide authentic Mexican grocery items and bakery items, deli goods and leather goods.
New businesses in the district offer hair styling, great coffee, fabulous cocktails and homemade food.
So, the next time you are out and about, just head up the hill and say hello to McKinley!
