This Interactive Tool Will Show You the City Where You Should be Living - Apartment Therapy
From The Kitchn - October 13, 2017

There are a lot of factors that go into making a big move, and for many people, the top priority is either their job or their family. But if you are on your own and you have job flexibility to go basically wherever you want (i.e. you work remotely), then what? In that case, you have the luxury of finding a place that suits youand not necessarily just your career.

To help you figure out the best U.S. city for you and your priorities, HighSpeedInternet.com put together a super easy interactive tool (ok and yeah, it's a strange source, but when you start to mess with the tool, you will see!). You choose the qualities that matter to you across a spectrum of optionspolitical leanings, crime rates, walkability, affordability, religious affiliations, weather and moreand it shows you a list of cities that suit them.

You can basically play around with endless combinations until you find a city that appeals to you, and tap options again a second time to make them higher priorities. If you know the area you'd prefer to be in, you can also narrow it down by selecting one or multiple regions. You can see all of the options to choose from below.

For example, searching for myself, I'd select the following:

In doing so, the top 3 cities the tool shows me are New York (perfect, considering I live here!), Providence, and Boston. If I double tap "mild weather" my number one option becomes Berkeley, CA. The tool also shows you the cities that would be the worst for you based on the options you plug in, so for me, Cleveland, TN and Wichita Falls, TX are out, among other cities.
