How to Get Here
The 6th Ave district spans a walkable area from State to Alder streets with an extended area of Sprague to Stevens streets. There are multiple routes to reach any of the fabulous businesses on 6th ave. Walk or take one of the ubiquitous scooters that line the Ave.
6th Ave offers street parking right on the Ave and concentrated side street parking throughout the district. Some establishments offer valet parking in the evenings. There is a pay parking lot in the heart of the district available by the hour as well as by the month. Of course, if you’re planning on spending the evening, we recommend Uber or Lyft or Pierce Transit (No. 1 Bus) — no parking or ticketing woes.
