Considering Relocation – Cities to Consider for Your Next Move

Whether it’s a job change, family obligation, or just new scenery you’re looking for, you may be on the market to relocate. When choosing a new city, it’s important to look in to the location’s offerings. Is the culture right for you? Can you stand the weather? Most importantly, how is the food? Find out the answers from our list of 10 U.S. cities to put on your map for your next move:

  1. Boulder, Colorado. Get outdoors and explore the offerings of Boulder! Endless biking and hiking trails keep this city in shape, boasting some of the most in shape residents in America. After your outdoor adventures, go home, walk your dog, and treat yourself with a craft beer.
  1. Austin, Texas. Bringing a furry friend along? Austin is one of the most pet-friendly cities in the nation, giving your four-legged pal a great new home. Dogs, food trucks, and live music are highlights of this fast-growing city, and for good reason!
  1. Scottsdale, Arizona. Crank the A/C and head out West! Surrounded by desert, mountains, and cacti, Scottsdale is a growing cosmopolitan city. If you’re a foodie, you’ll appreciate the culinary renaissance, offering Arizonans plenty of good-quality eateries to please their palate.
  1. Minneapolis, Minnesota. If being outside is one of your interests, Minneapolis is your place for enjoying amazing parks. Choose from one of 20 lakes in the area, and take your bike out for a nice ride. Who knows, you may run into Prince on a visit home. Be sure to bring a jacket for the winter!
  1. Cincinnati, Ohio. A hub for sports, beer, and food, Cincinnati is the perfect place to enjoy the American lifestyle. Cheer for the Reds, the nation’s first baseball team, with a bowl of Cincinnati Chili and a cold brew. Or, head home to play a relaxing game of Cincinnati’s game – Corn Hole!
  1. Knoxville, Tennessee. “Home is where the Streaking Capital of the World is,” can be a legitimate sentence if you settle down in Knoxville. When clothed, take a stroll in the Market Square District, where you can enjoy some classic country music with your Southern BBQ.
  1. Oak Park, Illinois. Leave the bustle of Chicago behind, and bring your family to Oak Park. Close enough to the city, but far enough to enjoy the changing seasons in the Austin Gardens. Though living is a little more expensive, it’s worth it for a happy home.
  1. Richmond, Virginia. Quoth the raven, “Move to Richmond.” Live in Edgar Allen Poe’s birthplace amongst young professionals. Here, you can get your fair dose of people watching, whether you’re walking along the James River, exploring the 17th Street Farmer’s Market, or attending a NASCAR event.
  1. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. If history, education, and culture are on the top of your list, move here. The City of Brotherly Love is home to a lot of amazing history, and has over 2000 outdoor murals. After visiting the Philadelphia Zoo, get your hands dirty with a decadent Philly cheese steak!
  1. San Diego, California. With an average daily temperature of 70.5 degrees Fahrenheit and over 70 miles of coastline, it’s hard to tell if this is home or a vacation. With a craft beer and California burrito in hand, kick up your feet and watch the sun set over the Pacific Ocean (AKA, your new home).
