Hello everyone. I am relocating to Fort. Lewis in a couple of months. I've been doing some research about Ft. Lewis and WA in general and bump into this forum. The 10m pennies question, where is a good place to live off post?

I've read from other users and everyone says STAY AWAY FROM TACOMA! and I see they recommend places like: Dupont, Lacey, Lakewood, etc...but as soon as I type in any of this places in search for apartments it always end up back in Tacoma, I mean the results on all these for rent apartments pages,...

So I was wondering, Does anyone has an idea how can I find specific leasing information on these so call "wonderful" areas of WA, near fort Lewis?

Any help is extremely appreciated!

Hi

here are two pages with appartments in dupont and lacey.

Clock Tower Village Apartment Homes - DuPont, Washington 800.314.8935
Emerald Pointe Apartments - Emerald Pointe Apartments - Lacey, WA

Once you arrive in Fort Lewis just pay a visit to the housing office, they are really helpfull and got a list with off post housing much of it available right away.

As for the area, you already got good advice. Lacey, Olympia, Tumwater, Dupont and Yelm all located to the west of Fort Lewis are good areas. There are some good spots in Lakewood, Tacoma and Spanaway, which are really nice. The housing office here will also be able to help you on where to search and they will let you know right away which areas to stay away from.

Good luck with your move, and congratulations on your new assignment. You will be able to live in one of the most beautiful areas in the us. Enjoy it!

Tacoma isn't that bad.... there are many mentions and threads talking about which places in Tacoma is the bad areas. At least check it out, it won't hurt.
