How We Determined The Wealthiest Neighborhoods In Tacoma For 2024

Every city has its best neighborhoods — where everyone wants to live — and the worst neighborhoods — where no one wants to live. And then you have the wealthiest neighborhoods, where no one can afford to live.

And by no one, we mean you because there’s always someone richer than you.

How do you quantify richer than you? We looked at one simple criterion:

Which neighborhoods have the highest median income?

Using Saturday Night Science, we researched income data from the Census and BLS for every neighborhood in Tacoma.

We ranked every neighborhood in Tacoma by median income from highest to lowest. The neighborhood with the highest median income, North End, was named the wealthiest neighborhood in Tacoma.
