Tacoma has good schools and colleges. They are a were of climate change they do their part, like plastic bags that don't do nothing but sit in the land fills. Trying to get people to take a train to work in steady driving to work. To change is more help with the homeless.

It's easily walkable, but pretty sketchy in a lot of areas. I work until late in the night and am always nervous about walking home. Other than that, I love the culture and all the interesting people I've gotten a chance to network with and/or befriend.
New Tacoma is a great place to live with newer buildings, great schools and a more conservative group of people.
