- City in Alaska
- Rating 3.89 out of 5 410 reviews
Current Resident: Anchorage, AK is extremely unique. It is the most populous city in the state of Alaska. It has a wonderful balance of suburbia and wilderness, and its nature trails are unmatched. There isn’t much of a downtown, and the city certainly isn’t known for its nightlife. However, most residents are interested in the arts and community events. The weather is volatile and you don’t see the sun very often, but there’s wonderful natural areas throughout town. Most people are friendly, but each neighborhood is different, and many of Anchorage’s wealthy residents can be disdainful toward poorer areas of town. Overall, the city is an above-average place to live. It has a unique vibe and interesting people, and you can’t beat the magnificent mountain and ocean views you’ll find here.

Current Resident: I love AMARILLO. It is a diverse community with great opportunities to grow and expand. Our schools provide us with many chances to work in the fields we would like to continue our careers in. We are a small but large town. Small enough to raise your family, but large enough to continue expansion and growth. Throughout the pandemic our town was fortunate enough to maintain a steady work environment , which we are extremely grateful.

Current Resident: Great town! I love the fact that Lubbock is so friendly! Everyone is willing to stop and help a person in need. I definitely feel safe walking around. There are plenty of shops and restaurants in town. The taxes are a little high but real estate is great. Most of the time the weather in Lubbock is great. The summers are nice and hot and winter are cold but without snow. I enjoy hanging out with friends and family. Lubbock has tons of activities too. You can go skating, bowling or even go to multiple different movie theaters. Usually in March the weather is quite crazy! Lubbock can be extremely windy. I love that the land is flat and that I can see every sunset and sunrise. I love that while driving you can see for miles and miles. Lubbock has a great medical community. There are a few hospitals all with great staff and reviews. For the most part Lubbock is a great town to go watch high school and college sports. The whole town gets together and supports their teams.

Works Here: This is a city full of life that is an excellent place for families because there are some K-12 schools that are fundamental. There are also some popular tourist attractions such as South Coast Plaza, which is a great place for anyone to visit! There are also attractions like ice cream places, hamburger joints, and diverse restaurants. Although this city has many attractions, it still has essential places to shop for necessities and groceries like Trader Joes, Target, Costco, and Sam's Club. This is a great place for people that want to have a little bit of everything and have great experiences.

Current Resident: As an "Allentownian" being born, raised, and residing in Allentown, PA, I can say that this city is very up and coming. Allentown is overflowing with many new opportunities for all ages and is a good place to raise a family. In the last 6 years, Allentown has grown tremendously and has brought many new attractions and businesses. In 2014, a local arena called the, "PPL Center" opened, where our local ice hockey team plays, famous musicians come and perform, and many shows are presented. Many new small businesses opened shortly after, local artists got a platform, and new condos and flats were built. Additionally, we have an immense number of restaurants here. Any type of food you can think of, there is a place in this city where it is served. To me, that is a BIG plus! Allentown is also very diverse in culture. We have all sorts of cultural and seasonal parades and festivals. In Allentown, we celebrate the differences that makes our city so special. So, come on down!

Current Resident: Midland TX is growing very fast! It is located in West Texas, super hot, and in the heart of the oilfield. Midland is a great place for young people looking to find high paying jobs that have opportunities to promote quickly. It is hard for restaurants, grocery stores, & other retail businesses to stay staffed as many people work in the oilfield leaving these types of jobs unfilled. You can move here, work a lot of hours, gain tons of experience including management experience & save money. When you get ready to retire you have plenty saved and if you buy real estate you can sell it & have even more to help you live a great retirement. My husband is currently a restaurant mgr & I work as a hostess & am attending school to complete my BA in Technical Mngmnt with a major in Human Resources. We have purchased a beautiful home here & plan to use our equity as part of our retirement. If you believe in working hard & are looking for great opportunities then Midland is the place to move!

Current Resident: Temecula has its pros and cons. It is a suburban town at a convenient distance from Los Angeles as well as San Diego. Temecula is a safe location for the most part. The schools are average, some schools that really stand out though are Vista Murrieta High School and Great Oak High School. Most of the schools in this school district aside from the aforementioned neglect their fine arts department unfortunately but the teachers are really good! Because Temecula is in Riverside County, most residents are right wing politically speaking, which is something that differs me from them. I am more left-leaning politically so this is something I found uncomfortable at moments.

Nearby Resident: I was born in Newark and still go to school there. People have this stereotype about Newark being the worst city in NJ that's full of crime and everyone's rude. But, that's false. I love the diversity there is and the programs there is that build-up community. It may have its flaws but it's home to so many good people!

- Rating 4.23 out of 5 610 reviews
Current Resident: I absolutely love Minneapolis. I came here for college (and there are a number of small colleges that do an incredible job and that facilitate connections between themselves, in addition to the massive U of M), but I stayed for the community. I was especially hooked by the vibrant community of artists and makers that ensure that our city is always full of creativity, new life, and fun for people of all ages and all walks of life. We are also a beautiful melting pot of cultures, and I love that my neighborhood represents that diversity in its residents, its shops, its restaurants, and the languages used by community organizations. The biggest drawback is the winter, but even that is fun when embrace it (like through sledding and hot cocoa)!

Current Resident: I moved to Huntsville, AL a month before the COVID-19 shutdown. I was able to enjoy many outside activities during the lockdown, without coming into contact with people. The are plenty of caves, trails, and rivers to explore. As things have started to open back up, there have been many additions added to the city. We are getting a AA baseball team, restaurants and hotels continue to open everyday, and there are social distanced events that happen throughout the city such as music venues showing free local artists. The food scene is on the rise with classic southern food, the integration of food trucks/trailers, and even European inspired food is starting to show up. I like that Huntsville has diverse culture and is a very transient city. You never know who you will meet and hear the stories of how we all ended up in town!

Current Resident: There are many great hole-in-the-wall type businesses in Clarksville that are owned by locals that make Clarksville an interesting place. There are high respects for military members, as it is also a military town due to the location of Fort Campbell Army base! Plenty of parks and trails to keep you busy outdoors, and many different types of indoor activities, like laser tag and mini golf, if you're an indoors type of person! We also have many art galleries and the Roxy that put on amazing shows. I would definitely recommend Clarksville as a place for people to visit.

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!

Visalia is in the heart of the Central Valley, which means one of our biggest industries here is agriculture. I am proud to know that my area helps feed 70% of the world's population! There are plenty of things to do in Visalia. Many families with young children like to host birthday parties at local entertainment venues such as Adventure Park, or Quantum Leap Extreme Air Sports! Popular restaurants include Outback Steakhouse, Five Guys, Fugazzis, the Vintage Press Restaurant, and Alejandra's Restaurant! Most importantly, educational opportunities are very good in Visalia.

Current Resident: What I like about Saint Louis is the affordability of the housing. I like the colleges/universities we have are all near each other and are top ranking. The rich diverse history of the city. I enjoy the growing restaurant scene popping up. I enjoy the quaint little areas like the Central West End and downtown on Washington where residence can enjoy fine dining, shopping, and nightlife within walking distance of where they live. The city has beautiful architecture in the buildings and brick houses that's been here for a hundred years. Our city has some of the best public schools in the country. We have great city attraction such as the Saint Louis Arch, The St. Louis Zoo, and our new Aquarium. We have top notch hospitals such as Barnes and St. Louis University Hospital. I love that we that greet people by asking "What high school did you go to". Summers are a blast here with free concerts and plays. Finally, the best thing about my city is baseball go Saint Louis Cardinals!

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: Chattanooga became home so quickly when I moved from California. It's a city with hospitality and charm. Not to big and not to small. It has gorgeous views in its downtown area, perfect for a romantic date or a family fun day. Having been to other malls recently, the Hamilton Place mall in Chattanooga truly stands out. Its lively, yet homey. You can find a wide array of options there! There are several universities, which bring a youthful vibe to the city. It's an artsy city. The feel of it is a bliss point between classic and edgy. Would absolutely raise my family here. Outside of downtown Chattanooga, there are peaceful places to settle that are still close to stores. For those who love the thrill of the city, downtown has all the action. For those who like the city, but also prefer the suburb vibe, the area near the mall (Hamilton County - Ooltewah Ringgold Road), is the perfect place to settle down. Ooltewah and Collegedale area is also a little more remote but is still ideal!

Overall Wichita Falls is an amazing place to raise a family!
