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!

Current Resident: Davis Island is no doubt one of the top places in the world.
Feels like a village setting with residents riding golf carts, two marinas, sailing club, running trails and even a small airport all within 5 min from downtown Tampa, all the restaurants, parks, Bayshore Blvd., Tampa's Riverwalk, TB Lightening arena, Ybor city and much more.
Best of all - the nicest people are your neighbors.

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.

#9 Best Places to Live in America
- Suburb of Philadelphia, PA
- 47 reviews
Current Resident: Before living in Chesterbrook, I lived in Northeast Philadelphia with my four siblings and parents. When I had gotten the news we would be moving to Chesterbrook I was undoubtedly heartbroken as I would be leaving my friends and family behind in Philadelphia. However, after having spent a year living within Chesterbrook, I can say it is one of the safest neighborhoods I have lived in. The area is very family friendly, has amazing schools, and full of color. However, with great areas come downfalls. The lack of diversity within the area is quite disappointing coming from a mid suburban area. The area is also extremely costly due to the conditions of Chesterbrook and is amazing school district, making it difficult to give it a 5/5 rating.

Niche User: I love how friendly everyone is in Palo Alto. The only thing that we need to continue to work on is the high population of homeless people in the area - there is a church that provides assistance but it does not have overnight accommodations.

Current Resident: Harbour Island is centrally located in downtown Tampa. I love living on the water, and easy walking distances to the downtown area. Then this is a good location for me.

- Suburb of St. Louis, MO

Former Resident: One of the best st louis has to offer with it's safe neighborhoods, location and amenities. Lived here for a year and felt safe/comfortable and close to forest park, stores, other neighborhoods and the business districts. The little shops were nice and lots of foot traffic was not weirdos like other areas in the city. community center nearby and overall an excellent place to live. Only issue was with living in an apartment near residential area was making friends. people were more reserved here and I think homeownership is important to fit in.. I would recommend this area to anyone with a family and a well/okay paying job.
