2 comments on “Spanaway”

Spanaway, although being the center for industrial business, is ranked low when it comes to safety and quality living. It resides dangerously close to neighborhoods with high crime rates. I had to take extra cautionary measures to protect my vehicle and other assets from theft and vandalism. The cost of living is more affordable than the surrounding cities, but I’d advise you save up extra money and move to a nicer area where you can walk safely at night.

Spanaway is adjacent to Joint Base Lewis-McChord, where many military families rent or own houses. It is within driving distance of Seattle, Olympia, and Tacoma. All three cities offer a wide range of fun tourist activities. Tacoma is the closest of the three major cities where you can find unique bars dotting the area and the artistic glass bridge.
