Starting with Bougie Bougie: Gig Harbor

Welcome to Gig Harbor – It’s Not Just Bougie, It’s Pretty Too!

Gig Harbor might sound like a fancy place, but the people here just call it “the Harbor.” It’s a cute spot near the water with nice restaurants and even places to go kayaking. If you’re into spending a bit more on an extra cool kayak, this is the place to be. Joe and Charity want you to check out this adorable town, and trust us, the view is worth it.


Commute-Friendly Tacoma: Where Beauty Meets Affordability

Tacoma – A Place That’s Nice and Easy on Your Wallet

Once you leave Gig Harbor and head north, you’ll reach Tacoma. Tacoma is like a treasure chest full of choices. It has its own little cities like Crest and University Place, and the best part is, it’s not too far from Seattle. That makes it a comfy and affordable choice for lots of folks. If you want to know more about Tacoma, we have more videos about it – it’s like finding a hidden gem!


Southbound Adventures: From Bonney Lake to Olympia

South Hill, Puyallup, and Beyond: Where There’s Lots to Choose From

Going south from Tacoma opens up a bunch of great options. Maybe you’re thinking about Bonney Lake or considering settling down in South Hill or Puyallup – there’s a lot to think about. And guess what? Keep going past JBLM (Joint Base Lewis-McChord), and you’ll hit Olympia, Tumwater, and Lacey. This area is both affordable and beautiful, offering lots of options, even homes by the water that won’t cost an arm and a leg!

Ocean Shores is a place where you can have your own beachy spot without spending a ton. It’s not just a house; it’s like a little beachy heaven where you can have fun without worrying about money.


The Charm of Enumclaw: A Hidden Gem in the Foothills

Enumclaw – Where Nature and Affordability Hang Out Together

Heading east, we find Enumclaw in the foothills. It’s like a hidden gem with a small town charm and beautiful foothills. Enumclaw shows that you don’t need to spend a lot to have a fancy house in a beautiful place. It’s a friendly community where nature and affordability are like best friends.


Conclusion: More Options, More Possibilities

So, if Seattle’s high prices make you go “whoa,” don’t worry. We, Joe and Charity Slawter, say that heading south gives you loads of options. The Thurston County area, with its many lakes and waterfronts, gives you a fantastic lifestyle without costing an arm and a leg.
