Re: Most Stressful cities
My family has lived in the metro Tacoma, Wa. area for more than 40+yrs, and we have never felt what is being said regarding this area....precisely that Tacoma is the #1 most "stressful place to live".
I would very much like to know your company has come to this conclusion, because I have never encountered anyone who felt this was a "stressful" town! Seattle, which is not even on this list, is much more stressful, just in the number of people who live there!
Tacoma has many venues to explore. We have a beautiful waterfront, which...by the way, is very safe to take walks & or have a meal at any number of fine dining restaurants any time of the day or evening!
Check out the Washington State Museum...Tacoma Art Gallery...Dale Chihuly Glass blowing business, and you can sit in the guest area and watch the highly skilled glass blowers, who create beautiful pieces!
We also have a wonderful Pierce County zoo and aquarium..."Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium", which also has a small petting farm. There are also many picnic and walking trails, along with Owens Beach. Pierce County also has many libraries, which are close to the communities they serve...plus the larger main branch in downtown Tacoma.
Mt Rainier is within about an hrs drive, plus we also are fortunate to view this beautiful mountain, like it was close enough to reach out and touch!!
In closing, I would like to add that while no town is 100% free of stress, for one reason or another, Tacoma should certainly not be the very 1st town on your list!!
