I used to live in Seattle but for the last 15 years have lived in Tucson, Arizona. We are wanting to come back the the Pacific Northwest and be closer to family who live in Seattle and Olympia area. However, we would live to get away from a lot of traffic and closer to mountains and streams. It seems like Mount Vernon would be nice but I only think I passed through it as a kid. One post said there isn't much to do in Mount Vernon so is it rather boring or do you think this would probably be a great place to relocate to? We are middle age. Thank you.
