If you’re looking for that perfect golf course home in a welcoming community and a small-town with spunk, University Place in Washington might just be the spot for you. This beautiful mixed residential and business town has a superb range of food, entertainment, education and employment options close to several planned golf course communities. Its time you pay attention. No trip to University Place is complete without a visit to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, two magnificent suspension bridges connecting Tacoma with the Kitsap Peninsula. The story of the bridges is made more intriguing by the collapse of an earlier incarnation, the 1940 Tacoma Narrows Bridge which collapsed in a windstorm. “Galloping Gertie,” the loving local name for the bridge is seared in the memory of residents. A successor bridge built in 1950 has lasted a long time and a new one has been built in 2007 to further enhance capacity. Driving through these beautiful suspension bridges especially at night will make you feel as you’ve taken off into thin air. After the flight into fancy, the Titlow Park will help bring you back to the ground with its fantastic 75-acre park with trails, beach-access, tennis courts and playgrounds. Great food is a major preoccupation of residents and it reflects in the excellent restaurants in the area. The burgers and hot dogs at Left’s Burger Shack will just melt in your mouth and the exquisite Pho by the Fresh Rolls University Place, a Vietnamese restaurant will leave an ever-lasting impression. This is just the tip of the iceberg and there is much more to see and do in this quaint little town. This heart-warming milieu is where builders are planning golf-course communities with customized homes. Choice of floorplans, two-car parking garages, heated pool, fitness center and clubhouse are just some of the attractions. High-quality, affordable education is available with several good schools within driving distance. NewHomeSource is the leading portal to find out more about such golf-friendly communities and homes.
