Moving to Seattle-Tacoma
I used to be a member here a while ago. I remember that a lot of people here are from the Northwest so I figured I'd ask you guys some questions about the area.
I am thinking about moving to Washington next summer. I live in Austin, currently. I was hoping to get any advice people have on the area. I've been there many times before, but never looking to move there, so I need a lot of information before I consider moving.
I would probably not move to Seattle since it's too expensive, but Tacoma and SeaTac are cheaper than here in Austin. Though I'm worried about the crime. So I'm wondering if anyone knows of affordable, safe neighborhoods in either of those locations. Also, if you have any information about what towns have good jobs, especially serving jobs or bartending jobs (not sure, do you have to be 21 to bartend in Washington? You don't in Texas.)
I appreciate any information you can give me.
