Parking is a fair distance away from the pier, and there is only limited parking pier-side. There is a shuttle when the carrier is in, but when I was stationed there, the base couldn't figure out how to fund a shuttle for the DDG and FFG Sailors.
I did enjoy the fact that the base was small, and did not experience too many delays getting into work. I would love to be stationed there again. It's just small, and like most bases, more could be done to support the Sailors on-board (i.e. shuttle bus, more robust selections at the NEX, a better food court, etc.).
My husband was on a DDG while we were there. If my memory is correct, they were only in for an accumulated (2 months) out of a year. Hence, my venturing to base was so limited. In the few times that I went there (for medical appointments, pharmacy, or dropping off my sailor), I had a pretty decent experience. The base is small, but not as small as our previous duty station (Singapore). Getting around was easy.
Huge NEX and the Commissary are not on the base. They are located in Point Loma, which is about 15 minutes from our house. So, it works out really great!
A lot of the complaints I heard from people is that it rains a lot and is constantly gloomy in Washington and during the fall and winter times, it gets really cold. Partly true. However, traffic and driving are not too bad. Even during bumper to bumper rush hours, cars are still moving. The further you go up north, the much lesser the traffic. People are mostly nice, courteous, and polite. Most importantly, air quality is the best, and to counter the gloominess, we have trees all over the place that stay green year-round. During the rainy and cold seasons, we occasionally get beautiful sunshiney days that makes you completely forget the gloom and rain. Summer is just absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Clear blue skies, temperate weather, greens everywhere, and explosions of colors (flowers, even weeds) all around. If you are on nature and hiking, this is the best place to be.
Our family made Washington our home. Now that we are retired from active duty and hope to finally put down roots after all the moving, we chose to go back here. Although we sold our home (in Arlington), we bought another house south of the Tacoma Narrows bridge and have been enjoying what Washington has to offer ever since.
