Let’s be honest. Most of the time we have no choice where we’ll be heading next. We live in a world tied together tightly by our jobs. It’s not a bad thing, it’s just reality. But for now, let’s say we have the brief luxury of choosing our next hometown. Here are ten places to call home before settling down:
1. New York City
The obvious one. You will never see so many different cultures and languages in one place in your entire life. The city has so many things going on, you’d have to spend total of like, three lifetimes there to experience all of them. You don’t get to be bored, you just don’t.
2. Washington D.C.
Our nation’s capital is not as great a city as NYC, but it sure has a great vibe. Monuments and museums among other things make this city a pleasant place. If you’re looking for decent place to go out at night, cross the bridge to Arlington, VA where most of the young people in the area live and go out.
3. Denver, Colorado
Denver has recently been experiencing an influx of millennials. During the summer you can take a nice drive with your friends to the mountains for some outdoor activities. During the winter? Grab your snowboard and head out to Vail or Breckenridge. And of course, they just legalized everyone’s favorite plant.
4. San Francisco
This is a cool place to live as long as you’re making bank. San Fran is overrun by great young people but the tech boom has caused living expenses to go through the roof. If you can afford it, try it out for a while.
5. Austin, Texas
Recent grads have flocked to this city. Austin is, without a doubt, a sure depart from the Texas we’re used to.
6. Miami, Florida
Who the hell likes winter? Like seriously, nobody appreciates going to work right before sunrise and leaving it after sunset. Warm weather, beautiful beaches and beautiful people. Burn that North Face jacket you’ve owned since you were fifteen and buy yourself some decent swimsuits. Live where everyone else vacations.
7. Los Angeles, California
Everyone has mixed feelings about LA. If you’re in to famous people, loads of traffic, and beaches, read no more.
8. Boston, Massachusetts
It’s one of the greatest cities in the U.S. According to Business Insider. We hear they’ve got the fittest and most attractive people in the world. Sports are a huge part of the culture here.
9. Seattle, WA
This is a great place to start a career thanks to countless startups. The outdoors and the culture are something that most cities on this list should envy (except the 150 days of rain a year).
10. Honolulu, HI
You don’t necessarily have to live in Honolulu, any of the other islands will do just fine. Winter doesn’t even exist here. But surfing, fishing, and hiking sure do.
