I love the old town feel of North Puyallup. It feels like country but has a close proximity to Federal Way and Tacoma. The only thing I'd change is the building moratorium. I think it's a shame that all the beautiful land is being torn up to accommodate for storage areas & apartment complexes.

Puyallup has some nice parks and shopping areas. The older downtown has some interesting antique shops and restaurants. It can get congested around the mall and during rush hour.
I live in an unincorporated area, so it is sometimes difficult to get the sheriff here when needed. With the recent homelessness increase the drug issues have increased as well.
