How We Choose the Best Places to Live

When choosing the best places in each state, we start with a few key questions to help us narrow down the search. 

Here are the things we like to think about when looking for the best place to live in different parts of the country:

  • Housing & Rental market. 
  • Job opportunities. 
  • Transportation and walkability. 
  • School districts.
  • Crime and safety. 
  • Culture and arts. 
  • Entertainment. 
  • Natural environment. 
  • Weather and climate. 

With those things in mind, we rely on our expert research and the experiences of our well-travel (and well-“localed”) teammates, friends, and family to compile our final list for each location. 

Remember, making any move can be a big decision, and the best place to live is a subjective distinction. Use these lists as a starting point to help you narrow down your search to find the right area for you. 

And, don’t forget the logistics for moving to a new state or city! Check out our moving checklists for each state as you plan your move.
