Have you ever gone on vacation or traveled through an area and thought to yourself, “I could live here?” Does the grass ever seem greener somewhere else? You may think the weather is nicer, the people may be friendlier, or there’s more to do that appeals to your interests than in the town you currently live in. If you answered yes to any of those questions, you’re not alone. I’ve often thought the same thing. Where would you move if you had the opportunity?
Top Places in the US I’d Like to Live
- The Outer Banks
I spent the past week exploring the area from Nags Head to Hatteras Island and if there has ever been a vacation I’ve not wanted to return from, that would be it. The laid-back atmosphere, abundance of coastline, and the plethora of activity is enticing.
- Fayetteville, North Carolina
When my husband and I visited Fayetteville earlier in the year, I fell in love. I’m not sure I’ve ever encountered friendlier people. After all, how often do you go out to eat and the hostess asks if you’d mind sharing a table with the people behind you in line?
- Seaside, Oregon
I’ve never been to a beach-side town that I’ve found more charming. Or it could be that I’ve always dreamed of finding an entire unblemished sand dollar on the beach and in Seaside, I found dozens. This is one destination that has me yearning to visit over and over.
- Skagway, Alaska
Stepping off the cruise ship and onto Alaskan soil took my breath away. Skagway is a quaint community that caters to the cruise travel industry it’s full of history and stunning views of not only the water but mountains as well. The best of both worlds.
- Cleveland, Ohio
As a travel writer, I’ve learned to appreciate the ease of flying in and out of the Cleveland airport but that’s not why I’d want to live here. I recently wrote a book on Cleveland and during my research, I discovered a couple areas that I found irresistible. Mainly the up and coming Ohio City and Tremont, both somewhat artsy communities with a smaller town feel within the main city of Cleveland. As a bonus, Cleveland rests on the shores of Lake Erie. Do you see a theme here? My family has moved several times over the years with my husband’s job. We’ve rented homes and lived in temporary housing which made it easy to pack up and move again when the time came. And I’ve not even mentioned our RV Days. I guess you could say we live a pretty mobile life. CORT Furniture Rental, a Berkshire Hathaway Company, provides services and solutions for those of us that live a mobile lifestyle. With Furniture on-demand we can move across the country and have new furnishings waiting for us when we get there and removed when we no longer need it. Oh, why was I not aware of CORT when we spent three months in a temporary apartment on air mattresses and dining on camp chairs? If you want your new home or temporary home to feel comfortable from the start, let CORT’s family of trained professionals assist you in furnishing a place you can call home from day one. Not only can you rent furniture, they can even provide assistance in finding a place to live and help you learn to navigate your new area. So, no matter where you (or I) decide to settle down, CORT offers mobility and convenience in the transition.
Is there somewhere you’d like to move to in the US? Would you consider renting furniture to help you in the move?
