How do I compare cities to find the best places to live?

The first step to figuring out where to live is research. Whether you have your heart set on moving to a particular place or are just curious about different cities, getting insider knowledge on a new area can help you determine if you could see yourself thriving there.

Using MYMOVE’s city guides, you can learn much-needed information about a prospective area. Basic facts like the cost of living and top industries show you what it’s like to live and work in the city. More in-depth information like the number of parks, music venues, and breweries paint a picture of the fun you could have there.

So, how do these city guides work?

We’ve compiled a varied list of data sources all in one place. Simply search for a specific city above, or explore the top metro areas in each state (and Puerto Rico). View our city guides to learn the basics, like population, weather, and housing prices, and the fun stuff, like culture and entertainment options.

How do I decide where to live?

Lots of factors go into choosing the location of your next life chapter. Does your company have an office in a city that excites you? Does the industry you work in have a presence in that metro area?

Do you want to own a car, or is walkability high on your priority list? Are you a museum buff, an avid hiker, or a music lover?

Sit down and make a checklist of your city must-haves. Then, create a list of general areas that pique your interest. Search for MYMOVE’s guides for those cities, and use those city guides as a starting point to decide where to live next.
