Nearby Resident: Atlanta is one of my favorite cities to visit on the weekends. With popular destinations such as Ponce City and Krog Street Market, grabbing a meal has never been easier or more delicious. If you are looking to be active, I suggest visiting Centennial Olympic Park or the Belt Line for a brisk jog or just a mild stroll to experience Atlanta's scenery. Not to mention the popping college scene with facilities for Georgia State State University and Georgia Tech providing beautiful campus tours as well. For your shopping needs, I suggest trying stores like Buffalo Exchange or stores within Ponce City Market to find a one-of-a-kind piece. There is always something to do in Atlanta!

Current Resident: Tucson is very versatile! Down town is super fun and lively, while the foothills are a perfect place to relax and watch the sunset. The city is decorated with murals that cover entire walls on the sides in buildings. There are plenty of museums with information about Arizona’s plant and animal life, as well. The University of Arizona is a giant school with many things to do, from football games to the spring fling carnival: the largest student run event in the nation.

Current Resident: Great city to live, work and play. I have lived in Anchorage for over 18 years, and I can call it home if you have a passion for the outdoors. If you enjoy skiing, hiking, fat tire biking, trail running, and many more activities, this state has to offer. Then you will have to go on compromise with the cold, dark, and long winter months unless you are like most "Alaskans" who leave to Hawaii after holidays to break the hibernation. It is one of those places where you eather hate it or love it! If you are considering moving to Alaska, I suggest first to visit in summer then again in winter.

Current Resident: It's a fast growing city, a very heartwarming, humble city. We as in Amarillo recently came out with a song called "Little Amarillo ft. Jade Ramos." A very beautiful song even though i wasn't born in Amarillo. I was raised here and this is my Yellow City. We have things to do in to keep the city rolling. Local vendors and artists. As of recent the town is heading towards a healthier outlook due to many crossfit gyms, gyms, and proactive things to do. The people in this town are friendly. Starting to gear towards a healthier outlook to the Straight+LGBTQ+ alliance. Diversity is vast and culture is intriguing. Enjoy the mid-pace.

Current Resident: I've lived here since the day I was born (23 yrs). It has grown dramatically because Midland is the heart of the Oil Field Industry. Because of this, living is expensive. There's not much to do like a typical big city (Dallas, TX). But you have bowling, great movie, or beautiful parks. There's plenty to do here, you just have to find it. There's many events during the year and especially during the summer. The public school system is great!

Current Resident: I have lived in Center City Allentown for over a year now and I love it! I am a 52yr old white woman who walks around town ( stores,restaurants,show's,sports events etc.) at all hours of the day and night and I've NEVER had one single problem. I look people in the eye, with a smile on my face and say hello to everyone I make eye contact with - and guess what? They all smile and say hello back. I treat everyone the same way that I want to be treated and as a result I've made a lot of new friends and a bunch of friendly acquaintances that I'm on a first name basis with. There is so much going on in Allentown and surrounding areas all the time and such wonderful diversity that I really,truly love living here!

Current Resident: I like the opportunities here. I appreciate the items like gloves,scarves, hats that are received for no charge. The places where I can go eat. Also the public transportation is awesome! The light rail goes from Minneapolis to St.Paul. The suburbs are easily accessible. There is not a problem with getting a job even if your not in the city.
The things I'm irritated with is the way the housing is here. Most of the housing is not affordable and the houses or apartments are small. I really believe if the rent was lower the homeless people would be able to afford it providing they have good credit,no unlawful detainers,and have first and last months rent. Also this is a refugee state. If the state can't house its own why do they keep letting people in from other countries?
On a good note, I consider Minneapolis to be pretty safe from where I come from. There are many libraries here and there are may events that goes on here,so I am not bored.

Current Resident: Temecula has been lots of fun over the years. As someone who has lived and been to school in Temecula, I can no doubt say that I have enjoyed life here. From hanging out with new friends, to exploring farmer's markets, it has been great. Location has always been another extraordinary advantage of Temecula too. Sandwiched between L.A. and San Diego, Temecula is only an hour away from Oceanside Beach and camping. Being between two enormous cities also has a serious side effect of lots of traffic unfortunately! Are you considering a visit? Or becoming a resident? Well whatever the case, Temecula could be a great fit for you. It is for me.

Current Resident: I have spent the past 4.5 years living in Lubbock, TX as a student at Texas Tech University. Lubbock has become my home away from home and I have genuinely enjoyed living here. It offers you the convenience of city life with a wide variety of restaurants, shops, and entertainment options. But still has the ease of West Texas living, no traffic being my favorite part! I would say the downfall of Lubbock are it's street conditions, lack of nightlife options, and no large entertainment venues (though that will change with the Buddy Holly Center's opening).

Current Resident: I've lived in Columbus my entire life. We have many good things! Stores, homes, jobs, diversity galore; not to mention tons of places where families can take their kids. However, theres one thing Columbus is lacking on saftey and education. There are some good schools, but the majority are underfunded but most have lacking safety. Most streets are unsafe and voided by the common resident. Overall, at best Columbus is a so-so place to live.

Current Resident: I live in Newark’s Forest Hill neighborhood bordering Branch Brook Park. I love it. Forest Hills is a close-knit community with a very active community association. It is a beautiful neighborhood with large historic homes. It is racially diverse. Transportation to NYC is a breeze. Only 20 minutes via NJ Transit. Since Branch Brook Park so close it’s easy to enjoy the running paths, play soccer, tennis, or baseball and other activities. There is even a new dog run. And Forest Hill is only 5 minutes away from Downtown Newark, which is undergoing a renaissance. There are many restaurants, concerts, and cultural activities at the Newark Museum, NJPAC, and Prudential Center. It is home to companies such as Amazon Audible, Prudential, Mars Wrigley headquarters. There is a Wholefoods and Starbucks. And the city is in the process of switching out all the old lead water lines. 90% of my block already has new copper water lines. If you’re moving to Newark, I recommend Forest Hill.

Current Resident: Living in Visalia, California has been a unique and fun experience for me! 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. Visalia has many different K-8 schools, preschools, and high schools. High schools of Visalia include El Diamante High School, Redwood High School, Golden West High School, and Mt. Whitney High School!

Current Resident: Huntsville is without a doubt one of the most safe, fast-growing, and friendly cities in the country. Corporations like engineer-generating NASA and security-enforcing Redstone Arsenal are located right here in Huntsville, promoting impressive technological advancements and safety being of the upmost importance, not to mention the often “Hello!” and friendly wave! The one thing that would enhance Huntsville is more businesses and people living here. The real-estate is fantastic, with low-cost houses, acres of land, safe neighborhoods, academically rated schools and more! If one was to look for an amazing place for friends and family, exciting innovation and academic superiority, an outpouring of creative art, historical sites, beautiful landscapes, farmer-fresh foods, wide-open spaces, crime free zones, and a breath of fresh air, Huntsville is the place to be!

Current Resident: What I like about PSL: its close to the beach, its 20 mins to Fort Pierce or 20 mins to Stuart, the parks and outdoor activities, the farmers markets and craft fairs, the outdoor restaurants, the people, most of the grocery stores around, the cost of gas, groceries, the gyms, the college IRSC, job opportunities for someone in their early 20's with little job experience, like myself.
What I dislike: the horrible chain restaurants that surround the town (chillys, olive garden, longhorn steakhouse). The large amount of fast food places that also surround the town. We do not have any local tasty cooking places around here, mostly chain restaurants or fast food joints. It would be nice to see something new be built, instead of another Burger King.. Also, there is absolutely no night life here at all. Most places are closed by 10 pm. Also, why don't we have a whole foods grocery store or trader joe's?!?!? Dying to have one of those around here!

Current Resident: Although the city of Temp provides late-night activities and scenery that is just unbeatable, especially for the college students that live nearby, there is usually always construction. Now, while this isn't a huge problem, it can get in the way of having a beautiful looking city. Once the construction is finished however, the city will be one of the best looking in Arizona!

Such as the many different breweries and restaurants, the civic theater and devos place which have many wonderful shows, van andel arena and the delta plex that hosts all kinds of artists and shows, frederick meijer gardens, museums, downtown market, the malls and tanger outlet. This list goes on and on! I've been lucky enough to experience each of these amazing venues and attractions along with even more and it makes me so thankful I live in such a great place that offers to many wonderful experiences.

Current Resident: Abilene is a growing, bustling college town filled with a lot of history as well as new trendy businesses. I've been in Abilene for over 12 years and continue to love calling it home. It has a little bit of everything which makes it very exciting for tourists and locals alike. Abilene is very centrally located which means that any neighboring city is just a short drive away. Recently, some changes are being made to the historic downtown area including plans for a new upscale hotel and some new local breweries and restaurants which is sure to increase tourism as well. I love the people in Abilene more than anything. The city is just big enough to spread out while running into people you know every once in a while. I have everything I need right here, in little'ol Abilene.

Current Resident: Clarksville, Tennessee has been my home since I was eight years old. My family moved here in 08' when my father was stationed at Ft.Campbell, KY. I graduated from Northeast Elementary, Middle, and Highschool, the CMCSS is what I appreciated best about Clarksville. It was because of the amazing athletic programs that I partook in from my 6th grade year to my graduating year that allowed me to achieve an athletic scholarship and because of the relationships I'd built with my teachers that allowed me to achieve an academic scholarship. Tennessee is a beautiful state with caring residents and Clarksvillle, Tennessee is one heck of a place to grow up!

Nearby Resident: I love St. Louis because it has a great night life, sports fanbase, and plenty of indoor and outdoor activities! The St. Louis Arch is admired by everyone living in the area (including those surrounding), and is a popular tourist sight. The craftsmanship is incredible, and riding the elevator to catch a view from the top of the Arch is an experience that is almost unmatched. The best place to be on game nights is either Busch Stadium, Enterprise Center, or joining the hype at Ballpark Village!

Current Resident: Reno is a great place for someone looking to experience all the outdoors has to offer! With multiple things to do including hiking, fishing and camping it is considered an outdoor lovers dream. While this is only one of the many benefits of living here, Reno has a small town vibe with an emphasis on community. However, the small city that Reno once was is changing as Reno growing by the day, thus attracting many people to Northern Nevada. In terms of work, there are plenty of job opportunities that allow for growth and development. With many companies like Tesla and Panasonic setting their sights on Reno and surrounding area, many more are bound to follow suit. Overall, this is a great place to live, but don't just take my word for it, come see for yourself!

I always get homesick when I'm away from my home city, nothing is like Wichita Falls. It may be a small city. However, with the city not being infested with so many people, I get to actually know the people of my neighborhood, community, and school. Personally, there is nothing more important to me than the communication of the people of one's city and with a city like Wichita Falls, communication is very likely!

Current Resident: The big city of Wichita, Kansas has a lot to offer the people that inhabit the area or chose to visit for vacation!The people that live in this area are very friendly and extremely colorful! The city encapsulates the true spirit of America and represents that in the architecture, food, and citizens.
The buildings that line the city can be seen from miles away and give you that big city vibe with the feeling of small town attitudes. The main attraction that Wichita offers and one place you'll have to visit is The Keeper of The Plains. The spectacular statue and fire show happens just as the sun goes down out on the water with a huge platform going around so that all can see.
All in all the city of Wichita has a big time feel with the personality of a small town. Come down and visit Wichita today and see what everyone that inhabits this area loves and appreciates day to day.

Current Resident: Chattanooga is a great place to live! There are so many amazing activities for visitors to partake in. There are lakes, rivers, hiking trails, and so many more options for an outside activity. During the summer on Fridays nights that have what is called "Night Fall" where it is free to listen to live bands and they have booths for beer and food trucks as well. You can go see baseball and soccer games which are very popular in Chattanooga. There are lots of cool places for children as well, the aquarium, zoo, creative discovery museum, and more! Going to or from downtown between 5 and 6 can take up to an hour and most of the public high school provide poor educations. There are three private schools: GPS, McCallie, and Baylor, that are among the top school in the nation. I would recommend a visit for sure!

Current Resident: This is a great city! There is a lot of diversity among residents. Many pretty parks to walk around and explore. With places for outdoor activities like hiking, running and biking, as well as organized sports. The city is very family friendly! The school districts are good, and the area is safe. It boasts several shopping malls with lots of wonderful places to eat from sweet to savory. There are even breweries too! Glendale's location is near to that of greater Los Angeles with several freeways to get you where you need to go. It's a good mix of city and suburban for those that want the faster paced lifestyle of a city but with the feel of a tight-knit community. I grew up in a close by neighboring town but moved to Glendale 3 years ago and I love it.
