Choosing Where You Want To Live
1. New York. This is the global centre for thriving business, trade and culture. It’s home to nearly 21 million people, speaking more than 200 languages. Packed with some of the nation’s tallest buildings and historic landmarks, New York never falls short of spectacular. It’s known for a fast paced, around-the-clock lifestyle. The work culture of New York is pretty punishing, as people tend to move to the city to make their name, or their future!
2. San Francisco. A fascinating city packed with famous landmarks, independently owned businesses and trendsetting residents. San Francisco is a complete universe in-itself within California. Each neighbourhood radiates its own vibe; from the historic scenery of Mission District, to the grassy hills of the Presidio, to the bustling piers along the Embarcadero. Tourism is the city’s biggest industry, but it’s also known as the most important city in the world for tech start ups.
3. Denver. Nicknamed the ‘Mile High City’ for its 5,279 feet elevation, Denver is located at the base of rocky mountains. The state of Colorado is best known for its devout ski and snowboard enthusiasts. Its community is easy-going, ambitious and very much into winter sports and hiking. The arts are high on the agenda in Denver. Over the years it’s been home to many of the legends on the American folk muscic scene, such as Bob Dylan, Jouhn Denver and Judy Collins. Music remains integral to the city, alongside theatre, and great restaurants!
4. Minneapolis. Once known as the ‘Flour Mining’ capital of the world, Minneapolis, in Minnesota, features a balance of historic architecture and contemporary skyscrapers. It’s packed with a huge variety of restaurants, bars and entertainment venues. Locals embrace the harsh winter and enjoy participating in sports such as hockey, fishing and skiing. During the summer, Minneapolis comes alive with outdoor music festivals and baseball games around the area’s lakes.
5. Fayetteville. Located in North Carolina, this is a city inextricably linked with the US military. It’s home to Fort Bragg, the largest military installation in the world, and the city’s culture has long reflected this. Fayetteville’s climate is sub tropical which produces mild winters and hot, humid summers with dramatic thunderstorms. At one time this was known for being the place great soldiers went to retire, but contemporary Fayetteville is changing fast. This is a up-and-coming area, with huge opportunities opening up for young people.
