Tacoma, WA


Beautiful city--Choose your neighborhood wisely - 7/10/2017
I moved to Tacoma from South Seattle and wanted to give an honest opinion having lived here 5 years:
Pros: Beautiful waterfront, Great restaurants, little traffic if you stay off the freeways, Beautiful parks and museums, Great people. Seriously, it's all the beauty you love about the Puget sound with none of the crowds.
Cons: Depending on what neighborhood you are in, you may experience more crime than you are comfortable with. I've been in the Dometop area and I have great neighbors, but I must confess, I've grown tired of the crime. Am I in danger? No, but I can't leave anything in my front yard or it will get stolen. It's not unusual to see prowlers walking down the street looking in cars and yards for something to steal. If I lived in North Tacoma or university place, this probably wouldn't happen nearly as often. Do I recommend Tacoma for someone living in the Puget sound--Absolutely--just make sure you research your neighborhood.
