Whitewater and Living Ft. Lewis, WA

Hey Buzzards,
Got orders today that are sending me out to Ft. Lewis, WA for the next 5 years (at least). It's not Colorado Springs but I know it's got more than enough stuff to do outside. Here's the major things that I am looking at right now.

Where would be a good place to look at buying a house out there. I keep hearing that Tacoma is becoming a dangerous place. Maybe Olympia or somewhere like that. I am more partial to getting out of the city if that's an option and does the area have quality year round after work runs to get? I know there's plenty of good whitewater in a 2 hr radius, but anything actually in town or very near it?

Hope everyone's enjoying the season out west.

Washington during the winter is tough. It gets dark early and has lots of cloudy cold days with almost no snow. The weather isn't to bad overall but just be ready. The summers are really fun. they have a great out doors scene so once you are there all should be good.
