Current Resident: Boise, Idaho is an incredible city, full of very kind-hearted individuals. As if that alone wasn't enough, from mountains to rivers, the scenery and outdoors is incredible! I am from Kentucky, and after visiting Boise once, I packed up my belongings and decided to move to Boise. The best way to describe Boise is that feeling you get when somewhere just feels like "home".
The only reason I give Boise 4/5 stars is because of the lack of diversity. This city is majority white and can sometimes seem as though it doesn't wish to change this. I understand that as the saying goes "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink", however perhaps the water is a bit contaminated. What I am trying to say is that Boise could do a better job of welcoming a diverse crowd with open arms.
If Boise would not only maintain its incredible goodwill but also utilize this towards increasing the diversity within its population, without a doubt this city would be a 5-star destination for all.

Current Resident: This city is exceptionally known for its diversity. There's a variety of different restaurants, places, cultures, and people. It is essentially NYC. Speaking of which, it's very close to NYC. It's a great commuter city. As a result, living here can be pretty expensive! It is also somewhat dangerous in some parts of the city. Otherwise, the benefits of this wonderful city overshadow the flaws.

Current Resident: I have lived in Central Tacoma since 2017 and we love it! Central Tacoma is, well, central to all there is to do and go in this city and the wider region. Super easy to get around on a bike, stroll past historic and colorful craftsman houses, 10 minute walk (for me) to 6th Ave, short bike ride to Proctor. Tacoma rocks excellent and affordable restaurants, museums, music and comedy venues, and incredible parks! Transportation is improving year by year with major upgrades to public transportation, rail access to Seattle, etc.

Current Resident: I moved from Brooklyn, NY to Fort Lauderdale, FL when I was 15 years old. As with most cities it has it good areas and its not so good areas. The public schools in the neighborhood if i may be honest are overcrowded. I wouldn't send my daughter to any of them. She attends a charter school. Nightlife is great, after all we are in south Florida so the nightlife is always Jumping! I would consider this city to be very kid friendly. Most neighborhoods here are pretty close knit. The city is very diverse and people from many different cultures also reside here. The Fort Lauderdale real market is currently a buyer's market. Very affordable to live here. There has been a lot of people moving here from Atlanta and NY due to the cost of living being less expensive. I find fort lauderdale to be a great place to raise a child which is why im still here 15 years later. I love that people are friendly and helpful in most neighborhoods.

Current Resident: We have lived all over (San Diego, DC, Chicago, Dallas, San Antonio, Jacksonville). The Woodlands is great, especially if you have a family. Great schools. Good people. Very safe! Clean. The Woodlands and its various villages are spread out in both Montgomery County and Harris County. The newest homes are in Creekside/Harris County and they range from $350K to $1.3+ million. Creekside is associated with Tomball ISD, which is a solid school system and less Beverly Hills 90210 and without the mega 1,500 student high school senior class that you see in Conroe ISD/older sections of The Woodlands. There are mega rich sections of The Woodlands in Montgomery Co. near Hughes Landing, but several older sections too with average, but aging housing. Montgomery Co. courts are MUCH tougher on criminals than Harris County and criminals know that, BUT Constable Precinct 4 has the paid contract to patrol Creekside so the police service is outstanding and dedicated to patrolling the area.

Current Resident: Downtown Santa Ana is lively with several entertainment options, from movies, drag brunch, clubs, and bars, to a monthly art show, & street festivals. The entertainment options are quite eclectic, catering to everyone. There are restaurants and markets within Santa Ana that offer culturally diverse foods, making shopping and dining options more plentiful and varied. I live near the border of Santa Ana and Costa Mesa, and my house is walking distance from lots of great spots! I can walk to South Coast Plaza (a large mall), the Performing Arts Center, and many restaurants and stores. With that said, the walkability of this area goes down because of the city’s homeless population and lack of mitigation of it. It does not feel safe, especially after dark, even though it is in a relatively nice area, and many other neighborhoods in Santa Ana are even worse. I hope something can be done about this as I don’t want to have to rely on my car as my mode of transportation so I can feel safe.

Current Resident: Metairie is a very calm place with many opportunities to have fun and live a normal life. The public schools here are decent as there are a few schools of high caliber, while the rest have generally lower stats. The traffic is worse around 3-4 pm, but any other time is pretty low. Some neighborhoods are safer than others. Generally, lower income neighborhoods are the most dangerous, while medium-high income neighborhoods are the safest. There is a wide variety of restaurants so as to never get bored of any one thing. There is plenty of green life, as there are multiple parks and playgrounds and little leagues to play sports in. I have lived here my whole life and have no regrets or problems with it whatsoever.

Current Resident: Albuquerque is great! I plan to raise my family here, because I love it so much. When we were researching moving out here 3 years ago, everything we read online was that ABQ was just a horrible crime ridden area, and while there are some tough parts of town, nothing could be further from the truth. The community here is very friendly and family friendly, and I love all the diversity and culture in the city. If I could pick anywhere to live during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic it would be ABQ. The Mayor, public health officials, and community at large has done and excellent job at protecting one another and helping one another during this very difficult time. I also love all the various beautiful locations across the state that are just a short drive away. Overall this city is extremely family friendly and beautiful. I am so very glad that we didn't turn down the opportunity to live in this awesome city because of all the negative reviews we read about online. I give Albuquerque a 10/10

Current Resident: Well I moved to Lincoln my junior year of high school and the school was gigantic! My class had went from 200 some kids in Texas to 500 kids in Lincoln. I was nervous at first, but people were pretty welcoming and talkative, especially when you get involved in activities. Lincoln is a small town, big city feeling. Everyone knows everyone, but Lincoln has many different spots you can go to not feel crowded. Also, I never noticed how active people are in Lincoln. I see people in their 80's running on all the different trails we have here, people are extremely devoted to health and fitness, which was nice to see because my family and I became more aware of ways to be better by being healthy and exercising regularly.

Current Resident: I loved the greenery and climate of Eugene, but I should've known that my bike would be stolen last year due to the reputation of the city for common bike theft. As a student at the University of Oregon, I was enchanted by the beautiful environment of the trees turning amber in the fall, and then various types of flora in the spring. I didn't really like how much it rained, but I suppose that's also what Eugene is known for. There're plenty of great food places around the city if you need a bite! For instance, grabbing an ice cream at Prince Puckler's, a pizza at TrackTown, or a crepe from one of the carts at the UO street fair. Overall, I would say that I am enjoying my experience in the city so far. It gives me a very homey feel and I am surprised by how easily I have created a lifelong group of friends within my university.

Current Resident: I have grown up in the city of Santa Rosa and I honestly believe it is a huge part of who I am today. It is very family friendly, the town as a whole is a strong community especially since we have faced many crisis’ that have made our community strong and whole. The atmosphere is very welcoming and diverse which is why I love my town so much. With it being very into the wine culture, there’s many activities that are suitable for adults. For kids and teenagers there are many schools throughout the town that give incredible circulars and amazing sports teams. With many schools it creates high competition between the local school which make sports game very fun! Overall my experience with Santa Rosa is incredible, I was so blessed to have been raised here and could see myself easing my family here as well.

Current Resident: Tempe is a beautiful, diverse city. The city boasts excellent parks, fun trails, and the amazing Tempe Town Lake. The parks, for the most part, are very safe. In North Tempe, you will find urban campers using the park ramadas or benches. Kiwanis Park seems endless when you are walking the trails next to huge ponds. Tempe Town Lake is right on the north side of campus and has paddleboard, kayak, boat, the new swans, and paddleboat rentals for the water. They also have multi-seater bikes for rent too. Arizona State University adds so much character and fun to the city. The students make anyone feel young, especially those living close to the university! Tempe has awesome, locally owned restaurants. You can find anything to eat from ethnic food, bakeries, great breakfast spots, and fun nightlife that are all locally owned. I've lived here for 20 years, and I would not live anywhere else!

Current Resident: Spokane is absolutely gorgeous & I feel so blessed to have grown up in a city that is so sweet.
Living in the Pacific Northwest you learn to love spending time outside, & there are plenty of ways to do that here. Manito Park is a must see & is known for it’s multiple alluring gardens, in addition to being the perfect place for pets, families & friends to gather. Many people love that we get to experience 4 beautiful seasons & with that all of the exciting events both big & small.
The downtown, is truly the heart of Spokane, decorated with a beautiful river that runs through the center of our city. Riverfront Park is a highlight, home to our clock tower, pavilion, & outdoor events. It practically hugs River Park Square another one of my favorite places.
Woven all through Spokane are the passionate small businesses that keep our city going. I adore the local restaurants, & the cozy coffee shops speckled throughout our city. Most of all, I love the kind people in our community!

Current Resident: I love people’s energy, always down to help each other. I really feel Miami is my home. Every service is near by, it does not matter where you are staying at. There are literally supermarkets at any corner. Public transportation works very well and the trains too. There are a bunch of activities to do all around the city, restaurants were my favorite part of it, fresh and latin very well done food. Visiting the beaches is a must! As for now Haulover Park is my favorite spot. If any night you feel like going out with some friends, Wynwood or Miami Beach are good options, there are a tons of bars and very nice restaurants.
You could also enjoy going to any park and some of them offer some activities, like in Bayside there are one or two days a week that could go to do Yoga. I would say that the city is very safe, but of course, like every other part of the world, you always have to be careful when you are around areas you do not really know that much.

Current Resident: I love Anchorage Alaska. I love the fresh air that I inhale every day and the freshwater that I drink. I even drink water from the sink! That's how clean our water is in Anchorage. I love going downtown and walking while eating hot dogs on a cold spring day, smoke coming out of my mouth. I love going skiing during the winter and playing tennis during the summer. I love the endless daylight that we receive in the summer and the limited sunlight we get during the winter. I might have a bias towards Anchorage in a good way since I was raised and born here, but I recommend those who prefer a quiet city rather than a loud and big city should come here. You get to see glaciers, go on hikes and see the wonderful nature that happen in Anchorage. I for sure rate it a 5/5.

Current Resident: I have really enjoyed my time in Raleigh so far. I moved back to Raleigh after four years in western NC for college, and I had forgotten how much there is to do in the capitol city. Downtown has seen quite a bit of growth in the past few years with the addition of many new businesses, restaurants, nightlife and activities. I recommend Amorino Raleigh for desserts, Sir Walter Raleigh for coffee, Parkside Restaurant for dinner, Just Salad for lunch, North Hills and Cameron Village for shopping, the Red Hat Amphitheater for concerts, Historic Oakwood for a stroll, and Drive Shack for a late-night activity. Between the exceptional pubic schools, diverse communities, range of activities, and the bustling nightlife- there is no place like Raleigh, NC!

Current Resident: There are so many things to love about Reno. We have a very diverse population and there is always something to do! Throughout the year we hold many festivals and celebrations, usually in the heart of our beloved city. We even have a whole month dedicated to the artists and performers of our community and surrounding areas and it's called Artown. The entire month of July has a wide variety of events; from movies in the park, to food, and live music shows, there is always something for everyone to enjoy. Year round the city stays busy with monthly events and a wide range of entertainment provided by local establishments for people of all ages to enjoy! There's always something to do in Reno.

Current Resident: Austin is a fairly large and rapidly growing city with quite a lot of sprawl. There is a TON to do here both indoors and outdoors with some great museums, lots of live music, fantastic variety of great food, and both unique and cookie-cutter shopping. There are a lot of beautiful hill country hiking and camping options here and some really cool water spots but if you can't handle the summer heat (June-September), or the winter cool (December-February), then you'll be moving from air conditioned bubble to bubble and just wishing you were outdoors. The heat is really bad and we get some intense summer thunderstorms. The early spring and late fall are GORGEOUS though! Traffic is insane and you will hate driving anywhere, but public transportation isn't a great option here unless you have time to spare or live near everything you need to access. Gentrification is strong. The growth definitely has it's positives and negatives. Fun city though!

Current Resident: Pittsburgh is an excellent city with a lot of pride from those that live there. There is so much to do in this city such as: attend sporting games, visit a museum, take a ride on the incline or a boat, and my personal favorite: lots of food! Pittsburgh is also home to the Pittsburgh zoo, Sandcastle water park, Idlewild, and Kennywood. These are some popular tourist attractions filled with fun things to do for the whole family, especially in the summer. One down side of Pittsburgh is the parking. I wish there were more parking garages to help ease the stress of finding somewhere to park in the busy city!

Current Resident: Great smaller-medium sized city for young families and young professionals to get a taste of everything and a great quality of life.
Because it is the largest city in a state with downright negligible, non-existent mental health and addiction services there are some pain points that need to be worked out and addressed by the state of New Hampshire, ASAP.
The city and many non-profits are footing the bill for the state’s unwillingness to address this issue and those needing help are funneled into the city where there are actual resources — after a statewide opioid crisis where the state was awarded substantial money for damages done by Perdue Pharma.
The city is great — the state’s priorities need work.

The amazing arts in the community can be seen in places like the Orpheum Theatre, Barrymore Theatre, Bartell Community Theatre, Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, etc. You have plenty of venues for comedians and musicians such as the Sylvee on the east side or Comedy Club on State Street, not to mention the Alliant Energy Center for more big name artists. This city has more parks per capita than any city in the U.S.! The outdoor recreation is insane, even in the winter! This place has it all.

Current Resident: College Station has a lot of dining and shopping choices without the busy traffic of a larger city. I would love to see more fishing options in the area or an increase in amount of fish stocked throughout the year. The public schools are fantastic! The teachers care about the student's success and will go above and beyond to help struggling students. Texas A&M University is in our backyard so there are lots of job opportunities in a wide variety of fields. Overall I believe College Station is a great place to raise a small family, go to college, or retire there is something for everyone.

Current Resident: Living in Chicago hasn’t been easy, but I love it here. I love the architecture and food. I love the summer time. Everyone is family oriented. The city love is amazing. My experience with Chicago has been both good and bad. There is a lot of violence and injustice that comes with living here. I love the beautiful view and skyline. I love The Bean and Navy Pier. Chicago is indeed ready for a change. I feel as though everyone as a whole and community should come together to support each other and have a positive attitude.You can go to the lakefront. Chicago has Lake Michigan with it’s numerous beaches and parks. Chicago is unique and diverse. Chicago food is a must! Chicago is known for some of the best restaurants. The pizza is thick, the hot dogs are unmatched, and there's this food called Italian beef. Chicago has multiple places you can visit and cite see. Overall, Chicago is indeed a loving place. We just have to progress and work towards change in some aspects. -Thank you!

Major market for all professional sports teams. Overall, an amazing place to live!
