"Best" and "worst" as far as what? Climate, traffic congestion, crime stats, jobs, cost of living, scenery, water quality, housing prices, schools and educational opportunities, cultural activities, political leanings, dog walking facilities?

Man, a subjective question if you don't narrow it down a little more. I'll be interested in the responses you'll get.

I'm interested in crime stats and if it has that "junky ghetto" look to it, or if it's really nice and kept up.

Redmond is a beautiful--but horrendously expensive--city, as is Bainbridge Island. Port Townsend is lovely and a little more affordable. The San Juan Islands are beautiful, but pricey and remote. I would not recommend Tacoma to anyone. Seattle is nice to go to for the day to shop or see a play or ballet or whatever, but I like to be on the ferry on my way home by the time the sun sets on it. There are a lot of nice places in Eastern Washington as well.

small sections of tacoma are nice.

The Olympic peninsula (port townsend/Sequim) or the San Juan's are the best.

True, some areas of Tacoma are nice, but one must be very careful, and I do not recommend Tacoma to anyone first moving to our area unless they first talk to someone there they trust.

If you're interested in the Olympic Peninsula, the only place that's not ghetto is Sequim. The rest of it is absolutely beautiful, but very ghetto. =/
