This city may not be on the more affordable side – with the median rent being $2268 – but there are perks to paying such a price. Former president John F. Kennedy grew up here so the city contains many historical tributes to him.
It also has a historical underground train. In the past, this city attracted many families, but it has now been voted the best city for the rich and single. If you are a young, well-off professional, looking for a bit of history and good quality of life, Brookline has much in store for you.
Located in close proximity to the border of Missouri, this Arkansas city is one of the finest the USA has to offer. If you are looking for a sparsely populated but developed metro area, Bentonville offers both. Bentonville takes the origins of its name from the former senator, Thomas Hart Benton.
It is also the home to Walmart and the Walmart Museum can be located here too. If you are looking for something a little bit more sophisticated, the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art can be found here too, featuring art pieces by Andy Warhol.
San Francisco, California
No list would be complete without the city which is home to the Golden Gate Bridge. San Francisco has long been known for its diversity and inclusiveness, as well as its steep tram-lined hills.
Numerous movies have been based in this city simply for its diverse mix and eclectic scene and its exciting entrepreneurial spirit. There are also famous landmarks such as Alcatraz prison and San Francisco Bay. If you are a free-thinker and love innovation while enjoying scenes overlooking a bay, San Francisco is ideal.
Fort Collins, Colorado
Colorado must be doing something right. On a list titled the Top 20 Cities of the USA, the state has four, including Fort Collins. While the city’s national cost of living is slightly above the national average, it is a more affordable option than living in Denver or Boulder.
Denver is still in close range of the city if you were planning a visit. That being said, Fort Collins offers many amenities making its high cost of living worthwhile. It also has the quintessential USA city feel with a range of parks and coffee shops.
Until the very recent past, Hawaii was the dream-holiday destination. Little wonder the state’s capital city, Honolulu, ranks as one of the best cities to live in. Translating to “sheltered harbor” or “calm port”, Honolulu is just that.
It is set on the southern shore of Oahu and offers refuge from busy city life. There are beaches and sublime seascapes but there is also a bustling city with a population of 400,000. The median rent price is $1500 making it rather affordable for those looking for the best of both worlds – sea, and city.
