Welcome to the Coldwell Banker Real Estate Best Places to Live guide, which includes helpful information for thousands of U.S. cities. Instead of sorting them traditionally by region or price, these lists were created to suit people's interests and personalities.
These lists of best places to live will allow you to explore different areas all across the country based on your personal preferences.
Suburbanites prefer a little more space, and a lot more peace and quiet, than the hustle and bustle of city life. Whether looking to settle down or raise a family, they like to spend time at backyard barbecues and soccer games, and want to be near good schools with easy access to amenities such as grocery stores and banks. Size matters, and a spacious backyard is important, as are community safety and the affordability of gasoline.
Social Seekers are hip, trendy and fun at heart. This group wants to live near the newest restaurants and all the action. They would rather go out than stay home any night of the week. Whether starting a career or enjoying the freedom of not being tied down, they are looking for affordability and accessibility. They would take a rooftop terrace over a big backyard any day of the week, and give top scores to public transportation.
