Lacey is a great town that has a lot of different stores in the area and very little crimes. The neighborhoods are very family friendly and the houses are a lot bigger than most houses in other neighborhoods in Washington. The school system here is really great as well.

I love all of the thrift stores here especially the thrift outlets in Lacey. I have gotten a lot of great items in amazing condition here. Every type of store you could think of is all located in Lacey as well as various gyms for people who likes to work out. Traffic on the I-5 heading either to Olympia or Seattle is always horrible.
