There's a possibility of my moving to Tacoma later this year, WITH a good job, so we don't need to discuss that part. The job would be IN Tacoma, and I'm really not interested in a long commute (been there, done that, looking in the no more than 20 minute range), and would use public transit at least part of the time if it's workable. Can someone give me some nice areas to look in to live (condo or smaller house, I'm not sure yet buying vs renting), and some other info on living in Tacoma (restaurants, entertainment, shopping, etc.). I've been to Seattle a few times, but have not been in Tacoma since driving through there as a kid on the way to the Seattle World's Fair.

I saw some old posts in a thread about not recommending Tacoma to "newcomers", so I['m looking for the inside information that would avoid those pitfalls.

And yes, I know the climate's a big change from Phoenix!
