- Suburb of Richmond, VA
- Rating 3.67 out of 5 3 reviews
Current Resident: I love the weather, the lakes, the flowers and gardens, its pristine and manicured. Great restaurants a and places to play. Amazing schools, awesome weather. Transplant from Seattle. It's so much better here than there. Lots of water here. Gorgeous. Lots of paths to walk on, parks to use. Shopping here is a breeze. Gorgeous shopping. Ponds, fish. Access to tons of jobs. Diverse, more of a richer area. Easy access to the freeways. International airport is not far. The gorgeous white sands at Virginia beach and otter banks are just right there. I'd say maybe 2 hours away drive tops. The costs of housing is more affordable here than Seattle that is for sure.

- Suburb of Cincinnati, OH
- Rating 4.48 out of 5 31 reviews
Current Resident: Madeira is a great small town for every type of life style. The school system there is phenomenal from K-12 with many students going on to attend prestigious universities. This does make the school very hyper competitive though which can be hard for some students. There are also a variety of activities in the summer for families like free summer concerts, Shakespeare in the park, and the wiffle ball league. There is also a great sense of community with everyone in the town. Everyone comes out for the football games on Friday nights in the falls and is always there to help each other in their time of need. Overall, Madeira is a great small town to live in.

#81 Best Places to Live in America
- Neighborhood in Palo Alto, CA
- Rating 4.67 out of 5 6 reviews
Niche User: Palo Alto is a town full of success. In the hub of Silicon Valley and in the shadow of Stanford University, people all over the world come to make Palo Alto their home. The community is a tight-knit group of people whom come from all different cultural backgrounds, ethnicities and lifestyles. Success, however, comes with a price. The school district, PAUSD, is known as one of the most prominent districts in the state. Academic pressures are high and the pressure to succeed is prominent.

- Neighborhood in Cambridge, MA
- Rating 3.77 out of 5 26 reviews
Current Resident: It is a beautiful, progressive and still diverse neighborhood despite the gentrification that has been occurring in the surrounding areas. Unfortunately some of the local businesses have either moved or shut down for new local expensive housing to be placed, but it is an extremely peaceful, neighborhood. It is extremely close to Central Square which is a hub of lively activity ranging from music shows to diverse restaurants. It is also close to transportation such as the MBTA in central square, close to Kendall, home of MIT, and in close proximity to Brighton/Allston which houses BU. While growing to be an expensive area, for those with a solid salary working in the tech industry, Cambridgeport is the place you want to live in. If you have a family you would like to raise, it is great as well since it has many parks which are dog friendly as well and fields for people to play in and is filled with leagues for children to participate in.

Mount Lebanon Township
#85 Best Places to Live in America
- Suburb of Pittsburgh, PA
- Rating 4.14 out of 5 83 reviews
Current Resident: Mt Lebanon is close to the city, with a few t and bus stops in the area, while maintaining a quiet suburban feel. Its a cute area and has many walkable restaurants/shops, but diversity is a major issue. Mt Lebanon is overwhelmingly white and does not have many cultural sites or attempts at inclusivity. Even the restaurants in the area are mainly Eurocentric. The school district is fantastic at surface level, but fails to provide students with an adequate education about the history of nonwhite countries, present day struggles for people of color, and doubles down on white washing literature and American history. If the issue of diversity in this town was actually talked about and those in charge began instituting changes, this would be a fantastic place to live and raise a family, but it is impossible to ignore this huge red flag.

- City in Virginia
- Rating 4.54 out of 5 227 reviews
Current Resident: I've lived in Arlington for almost 18 years, and I really love it. It's the perfect mix of urban and suburban. There is plenty of outdoor space to enjoy. We are pretty close to the Capitol, so there is a lot of activity going on. There's many opportunities for entertainment and exercise in the area. It's a very wealthy area, so our government funded establishments are very strong and hold a wealth of resources for the community. Commuting to and from work is not super tedious. I know plenty of people who can easy walk, metro, or bike each day. I do believe that there is something great for everyone here, and there is always something new to explore!

- Suburb of Richmond, VA
- Rating 4.04 out of 5 49 reviews
Current Resident: Short Pump is friendly and a beautiful area to live in. It’s a peaceful and safe town to start a family and make friends. There are great quality schools from elementary to high schools. In addition, Short Pump is a lively community filled with a mixture of enjoyable activities, distinguished restaurants, and well-known stores. Most, if not all, neighborhoods are very family-friendly and have extremely low crime rates. If I had to name one flaw of the town it would be the lack of diversity; its, not the best place for meeting a variety of people and witnessing different aspects of life. However, Richmond City is only about a 20-minute drive from Short Pump, and the city is a growing area with an abundance of diversity. Overall, I enjoy living in Short Pump and there is never a dull moment.

- Suburb of Milwaukee, WI
- Rating 4.23 out of 5 26 reviews
Current Resident: The best public and private schools in the state attract families committed to a family-centric lifestyle. Children safely walk to school on tree lined streets. Houses include mansions and modest ranches, all lovingly landscaped. You find 2 parks on Lake Michigan, easy access to bike paths, tennis courts, a new baseball park, unique stores and cafes, and much more. All of these amenities result in high property taxes which everyone proudly complains about!

- Rating 4.07 out of 5 72 reviews
Current Resident: it's a quiet place to live. There are a lot of shops in the area which makes it very convenient to get errands done. Also a lot of supermarkets. It's not loud at night, have not had any issues so far. Plenty of gym options. The train is conveniently located. Giving four stars because technically, there is no town. But overall, great town!

- Town in New Jersey
- Rating 4.45 out of 5 78 reviews
Current Resident: Great place to raise a family. It is near Princeton Junction train station and bus stops for NYC and elsewhere. You can easily commute to NYC or Philadelphia. There is a small train (Dinky) that you can take from Princeton University to the PJ station. The university has buses for around town. You will enjoy suburban life in a college town. Princeton University has many events you can go to. McCarter Theatre is also in town. Princeton is not a big party school so students are respectful to residents and their property. Many tutor. You and your children will be able to walk/bike to town, which is especially appreciated by the teenagers. The public schools are top notch from elementary to high school. We live in Littlebrook and our kids walk, bike or scooter to elementary, middle or high school without crossing Nassau. Love their schools. There are many private day and boarding schools within a 10-15 mile radius. Great town. Everything is nearby. Go for it!

Canyon Creek South
#94 Best Places to Live in America
- Neighborhood in Richardson, TX
- Rating 4 out of 5 5 reviews
Niche User: The general atmosphere of this area is friendly, safe, and busy. The community is close, the policemen and firemen are always available and easily accessible, there tons of small businesses coming and going. If I could choose to live here again I would. However, my only complaint is that the area's ethnic and political diversity is very small. A good portion of the are is white and conservative. I believe that an are should consist of an equal mix of conservatives and liberals. With the area being in Texas, the area's current ethnic and political statistics are not of any surprise. With that said, compared to everywhere else in the country, I personally feel that this area is definitely one of the best places for people who want to be involved in a tight knit community and want to live in a small town with a touch of the big city.

#96 Best Places to Live in America
- Neighborhood in Cambridge, MA
- Rating 4.67 out of 5 6 reviews
Current Resident: East Cambridge is a highly walkable low-rise neighborhood. Taller buildings can be found closer to the Cambridgeside Galleria and east of the new Lechmere (about a 5 min ride to North Station) station. There is a wide range of rental and home prices in the neighborhood. There are lots of small businesses and it is home to many tech companies, such as Hubspot, Kayak, and Chewy. East Cambridge lacks a good transit option to Kendall square, but it's certainly bikeable or walkable if you want to do that. The biggest drawback I see it the state of the sidewalks and roads. From 2020-2021 Gore st will be getting a major facelift. O'Brien Highway is also getting renovated. This neighborhood is a great place for those who want to live close to Boston, but are looking for value. If you have a roommate(s), $1000 a month is definitely achieavable.

Current Resident: This neighborhood very recently had homes selling for 300K and north of one million. PL/LH is centrally located less than 5 minutes from Downtown Orlando and the Parks (College, Thornton, Delany, Baldwin and Winter). The eating and drink options are nearly endless and they are walkable. This is a neighborhood where people know their neighbor’s and the generations that have lived here before.

Former Resident: My experience at Homewood has been nothing but the best! I was raised in Homewood and went to Homewood City Schools for the majority of my life. The teachers at Homewood want nothing but the best for their students. They go the long mile to provide an environment of learning that enables students to be individuals of their own. Homewood is a family oriented community. They strive to do their best to keep the community going. The community has fundraisers, events, and foundations to give back to the city. As a senior in college finishing up my last semester, I appreciate the people who have raised and helped me achieve my overall success!
