Tacoma ranked at the top of 100 large metro areas surveyed by the BestPlaces ranking researcher, which also took into account other factors such as commute times, alcohol consumption and self-reported mental health.
Top Five Most Stressful Cities
(According to

Tacoma, WA tops the list for being America's most stressful city. With one the highest divorce rates in the country along with high unemployment, Tacoma has been rated as a city not for the faint at heart. took a look at the top 100 large metro areas and took into account factors such as commuting time, self-reported mental health and alcohol consumption, and divorce rates.

Although, Tacomonas enjoy the safety associated with a low crime rate, their dreary weather, high suicide rate and property crimes makes up for that small fraction of comfort.

Listed below are other cities who made the list

Miami, FL
Miami has one of the highest violent crime rates in the country as well as one of the highest property crime rates. Making Miami even more stressful is the long commute time, a high unemployment rate, and a high rate of divorce. Despite these factors, Miami residents manage to maintain a positive mental attitude. Miami has enjoyed a large population migration due to its weather, housing boom and location to the Caribbean.  Within the last five years, the average price of a house went from $150,000 to $265,000.
New Orleans
Has seen its ups and its downs especially of late. Hurricane Katrina devasted this once tourist haven.  New Orleans a high violent crime rate and a high unemployment rate. There's also a significant number of suicides and divorces. But the residents of new Orleans are resilient like no other. As New Orleans continues to rebuild its residents are constantly reminded of losses that have endured.
Las Vegas, NV
The city of sin  - Las Vegas produces some extremely stressful conditions and suffers from one of the highest suicide and divorce rates in the country. Unfortunately, the greatest number of sunny days per year doesn't seem to translate to overall happiness-- residents of Las Vegas have a great number of days experiencing poor mental health. However, that may pick up due to the robust housing economy which is driving in many new residents, business owners and psychiatrists.

New York, NY " Survivor State"
Beginning and ending their days with the longest commute in the country, the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple can really stress people out. NYC truly lives up to the ever popular song lyrics "If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere."  If the poor of NYC were to form their own state, it would make the 4th largest state in the country.

Does it ever seem as though everywhere you go someone claims they are from Brooklyn, NY? Well, they might be. If Brooklyn (one of the 5 boroughs that make up NYC) were to become it's own city, it would be the 3rd largest in the country. Actually, it has been recorded that 1 out of every 5 Americans have either lived in Brooklyn or has had a relative who has spent time in Brooklyn, NY.

NYC's unemployment is among the highest in the country.  Violent crimes, robberies and break-ins are up, which may explain why New Yorkers spend many of their days experiencing stress, depression, and problems with emotions. But New Yorkers are not quitters - the suicide and divorce rates are among of the lowest in the country. New Yorkers maintain very strong family ties have have been said to be of the most loyal friends you will ever have.  The night scene is amazing but expensive with drinks that average $12-$15 each and club entrance fees of $45+.
