Olympia offers some very nice scenery of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains and Mt. Rainier. Does you wife like it so far? Here are some photos for you: www.olympiauncovered.com

Fast paced? No. Not a sleepy town by any means, though. It's very nice and, compared to what the housing prices in California are, still relatively affordable. Temperate summers and drizzly rain and seemily endless overcast cloud cover the rest of the year with a couple of days of very light snow.

The job market here isn't as bad as CA, but not real great, either. The state is several billion dollars in the red. There is no property tax limit like in CA, but also no state income tax.
