I consider it among the best because it combines the tranquility and friendliness of a rural area with the more permissive social attitudes of a liberal urban area. There are very few places left that have the benefits of both rural and urban areas. For the most part there are urban areas that are diverse and permissive, but crowded and gross (Seattle), or smaller areas that are quiet, but inhabited by pious, homophobic rednecks (Wenatchee). Vashon is the best of both worlds.

It should just be renamed as SeattChinda.

[quote=stingray427;11064208]I have heard that Washington state has become too liberal like California so alot of people are leaving Washington state because of the very bad property tax situation there and moving to Idaho and other places.[/quote

A smart person can easily ascertain that both California and Washington are GROWING-- that means more people. Yes every state has people who move- and California is so big you will find many moving out but many moving in. California has a high standard of living --that means people are educated and successful in many areas. If they have a few million in savings they can get a lot more land and/or house somewhere else so why not?

In addition to doing just a modicum of research i would drop the friends from which you hear these things.

I do have the perfect place for you--- Alabama or Mississippi.

Don't by any means move to SW Washington - Pacific County especially . I find those places really attractive and friendly but not for you Stingray - some of them even voted for Obama! Gasp!

We travel through parts of the Olympic Peninsula frequently. We really like Montesano. It has a beautiful courthouse and the people we met there were very friendly. Also, Port Townsend has rich Victorian era architecture and history.

Downtown Coupeville is walkable and is on the water. Ditto Anacortes.

Yakima is not on my list of great places due to crime but some people seem to like it. Tri-Cities is a jumble of freeways, almost like splattered spaghetti.

Lynden is a clean town and is surrounded by agriculture. The downtown seems to pride itself on its agricultural and Dutch Heritage. The homes nearby have nicely landscaped yards

I do like Winthrop but it is a tourist trap. Ditto Leavenworth.
