#26 Best Places to Buy a House in America
- Neighborhood in Orlando, FL
Current Resident: A beautiful and quiet family friendly community in an outstanding location between downtown Orlando and Winter Park. Nestled among mature trees and three natural lakes, Rose Isle is bordered by Leu Gardens, Meade Gardens, Loch Haven Park and Florida Hospital. Rose Isle is 1/4 mile from the Sun Rail Station and less than 1 mile to Interstate 4. World class shopping, dining and nightlife as well as Orlando City soccer, Orlando Magic basketball and the performing arts center are all just minutes away.

Current Resident: Fishers is a very family oriented community with phenomenal schools. My children are able to play outside without too much concern for their safety (outside of the normal concerns of traffic, etc.) Everything we need is within close proximity, i.e. grocery, library. Traffic can often be difficult, but those problems are being remedied currently. We love Fishers!

- Town in Pennsylvania
Current Resident: It's a safe town, you can walk the streets at night and not worry about your safety. It's just beyond the cusp on the university so it has a small town feel but is merely a few miles outside the main campus.

- Neighborhood in Boise, ID
Niche User: This area is growing in arts and culture. Job opportunities seem to be growing for larger companies. There is a ton of outdoor recreation available. You can experience almost all of the modern conveniences, yet still be lost in the wilderness quite quickly if you want to be.

Niche User: The people in town are great. You get to know a lot of people because it's a growing city with a small town feel despite that. I would definitely choose to live here again. It is a growing city with increasing potential. I see it being even more of a thriving area in the future.

- Suburb of St. Louis, MO
Current Resident: Glendale is the most amazing place to live. Everyone takes care of each other, the schools are phenomenal, and it is the best "small town" feel in a big city. We love raising our three children here and couldn't imagine a better place to live!

- Town in Indiana
Current Resident: Carmel is probably one of the best places in America you could hope to raise a family and have a good childhood in, it has got some of the best ranked school systems in the nation and the community is beyond friendly. I love that its not too big that it's overwhelming, but at the same time not small enough that someone could call it uninteresting!

Palma Ceia West
#47 Best Places to Buy a House in America
- Neighborhood in Tampa, FL
Niche User: Highest acclaim to Palma Ceia West NA for informative relevant posts despite having to deal with infamous residents like Helen Maseda on W San Carlos St. As an engineer at Tampa Electric (TECO), with her sadistic and condescending attitude she was responsible for diminishing or ruining the careers of no less than 5 (five) consecutive interns - 4 co-op (alternating work/study) student interns and an EIT (engineer in training - recent bachelor degree graduate engineer). All 5 only lasted one term of a few months and didn't return - some to different areas within TECO and many having left the field of engineering entirely. Normally less than 10% of interns don't return to their job position in the co-op work/study rotation. So the odds of 5 consecutive engineers not returning is 10%X10%X10%X10%X10% or .00001 - one in 100,000!

- Town in Nevada
Current Resident: What I like about Battle Mountain is that it is a very supportive and small community. Families are mostly all good friends with one another and it's somewhat of a diverse town. I like how I can feel safe mostly everywhere I go and how there is not a lot of traffic when I commute to school or practice. What I hope that will change about this town is the amount of job opportunities and the safety in our high school. Our high school has rarely had problems, but it still isn't as safe as it should be, but they are working on that now.

- Town in New Mexico
Former Resident: Los Alamos is in a remote but idyllic ponderosa pine setting atop 5 mesas (7,500 ft elevation) overlooking the Rio Grande valley. It is a town of cultural diversity being the home to scientists from all over the world, yet encircled by Native American land. It is a wonderful place for raising a family...safe environment...good school system...lots of free activities designed for young families. There are many trails to hike, parks to explore, playgrounds to enjoy, museums and nature center activities to enlighten. There is a golf course, an aquacenter and ski slopes at hand. If you like to perform musically or theatrically there are various organizations which provide plenty of opportunities. There is an arts center with a shop to display ones creations. There is a large public library that is well supported by its highly educated community members. We lived in Los Alamos for 12 years...it was a privilege to have been able to do so.

- Town in New Mexico
Niche User: I came here 20 years ago, thinking we'd be here about 3 years, but it's been a great place to raise a family, and now we've moved our retired parents and other family members into the community! The altitude can be tough for those coming from sea level, but other than that it's a fantastic place. Concerts every Friday night (free) at local parks, parades, art events, a craft brewing cooperative, great neighbors, trails, skiing, it's a super area and it's welcoming and visually appealing. It helps that it has a great climate and good schools, too.
