I have an increasing chance of moving to the Tacoma area. I know nothing of Tacoma really. I've spoken to some of you about Tacoma before. is this area decent? How's the public transportation?

Easily one of the worst places in the metro area no exaggeration. Parkland is awful.

Agreed, not the best location. I'd do my best to avoid Spanaway and Parkland.

I agree too, crime is a major concern there.

You'll be quite pleased with the selection of crime available in Parkland. It might be a little light on white collar crime, but all others will be well represented.

Gentoom, do you own a car? Parkland is sandwiched right between Puyallup and Lakewood. You'd be better off living in either one of those locations. You'd still be close to Parkland.

Oh, I see you are in Richmond. Very similar to where you are now, maybe not quite as bad. As long as you are moving, wouldn't you like to move up a bit? Puyallup would be affordable too but is better.

Thanks Hemlock. Well, I have a friend who lives there and may have a room available in August. Now I would eventually start to look elsewhere but yeah, over the last year, I have been moving up bit by bit since leaving San Diego. Before Richmond, I was in East Oakland.
