The Ten Best Places to Live  Reply with quote  

These ten places are each special in their own way. The only downside may be that it's hard to keep a secret, so most of them have seen considerable increases in home prices over the last couple of years.

Charlottesville, VA
Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, most areas of this idyllic city are accessible by foot or bicycle. Charlottesville enjoys clean air and water, and pleasant weather year-round, highlighted by especially beautiful fall foliage.

Santa Fe, NM
Home to over 250 art galleries and the new Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe has long been a haven for artists. Perched high in the desert mountains, Santa Fe's air is crisp and clean. Daytime temperatures are mild, though the nights are often cold.

San Luis Obispo- Atascadero- Paso Robles, CA
This quiet group of towns on the central California coast could easily qualify as paradise. The climate is among the country's most pleasant, with 285 mostly sunny days per year and temperatures rarely above 90 degrees, or below freezing.

Santa Barbara-Santa Maria-Lompoc, CA
A few miles north of Los Angeles, Santa Barbara has long been a #1 relocation choice for those who can afford it. This area is famous for lavish estates that carry a price tag in the millions of dollars.

Honolulu, HI
Everyone knows that Honolulu is a great place to vacation, but what about putting down roots in Hawaii's capital city? After a slow start, home appreciation is taking off like a rocket as well-to-do mainlanders are looking for a place to invest, and enjoy.

Ann Arbor, MI
The University of Michigan is the foundation of the city's economy, providing stable employment to many residents and keeping the unemployment rate well below the national average. Perhaps it is no coincidence that the residents of Ann Arbor are well educated-- more than 20% have college degrees.

Atlanta, GA
Atlanta is the largest city in our Top 10 Best Places to Live, having recently experienced a huge population boom. The crossroads of the South has become especially popular with young people looking for a sunny and exciting urban center that is easy on the checkbook, with its reasonable cost of living.

Asheville, NC
Asheville is situated at the foot of the Great Smoky Mountains, the highest part of the Appalachian Range. A low cost of living and affordable housing (median home price $202,100) offset the area's low measure of diversity and unremarkable economy.

Reno, NV
Reno is another one of the Top 10 cities that has recently experienced significant population growth. New residents are attracted by the area's lack of crowding and absence of income tax. Reno boasts ample options for outdoor recreation, including skiing the Sierra Nevada's and exploring Lake Tahoe and its surrounding national forest.

Corvallis, OR
Corvallis is home to Oregon State University and hence many young singles. Technology stalwart Hewlett-Packard has a major presence here, which helps explain the city's low unemployment rate and impressive recent job growth. The presence of OSU and HP has created something of an intellectual center-- over 20% of its residents have earned a graduate or professional degree.

These are all places in the U.S.A.!!

Don't you have any great places to live in India!?!?

C'mon, we don't want to hear you parrot something you read somewhere; we want to know what you think about where you live. Speak from your own personal experience!! That's the only thing that's going to be believable.

I don't want people cutting and pasting articles into posts. I want people composing their own posts in their own words about things they know about themselves. Post a new thread in your own words about why you think Mumbai is a good place to live and that's something worth reading.

I love the city of Richfield, Minnesota. It really strives to bring in small businesses, caters to the lower income housing problem, has a small town community with great neighborhoods and is close to major highways.

Turkish Riviera  Reply with quote  

I moved to Antalya in Turkey 1 year ago and I have to recommend it certainly as a cheap place to live. You can easily get by on 30 TL a week that's only 10.00

Want to relocate to Turkey?
