When searching for a new place to live, there are some cities that stand out from the rest. With the many variables involved in deciding where to start a new life, you should only be choosing from the best.

With that said, here are six of the best cities to consider when deciding where to go next.

Dallas, TX

In a recent study by Forbes, Texas ranked as one of the best states to move to when seeking jobs, quality education, and more. It’s a particularly effective place for starting a new life thanks to one of the state’s rare qualities: there’s no income tax. Jobs are plentiful and the Dallas cityscape can fulfill all the needs you may have.

Additionally, Texas sports the acclaimed UT System of colleges, a highly respected and highly affordable education opportunity. All these factors make Dallas one of the premier cities to start fresh in the United States.

Eden Prairie, Minn.

Eden Prairie is home to fantastic job opportunities, sights and nature, and even a community light rail system that’s currently under construction. With all this to its name, the city maintains a population of less than 70,000 people, yet it still boasts large businesses, a budget surplus, and a highly active and communal culture. It’s no surprise that Money Magazine calls Eden Prairie the #1 Best Place to Live in America.

South Orange County, Calif.

With how often film and media depicts its serene, idyllic locations, you’ve probably heard a thing or two about beautiful Orange County. What you may not know is how welcoming it is for those seeking a new beginning. Orange County offers a variety of jobs, excellent educational opportunities, and even affordable living.

If you need any more convincing, check out some of the Mission Viejo real estate for sale. Located in one of the most affluent, cultural cities in the United States, this is certainly a prime choice for starting a new life.

Kansas City, Mo.

Kansas City is an interesting city, to say the least. Divided along two state borders, it’s one of the most culturally diverse cities in the heart of America. Sporting cultural and economic growth, as well as a burgeoning education and art scene, Kansas City provides an excellent place for a family looking to start a new life in a promising locale.

The Nelson Atkins museum in Kansas City is a gorgeous place, set in natural scenery complete with a sculpture garden — and this is just the surface of KC’s art culture. For established families looking for an excellent locale, Kansas City is a strong contender.

Anchorage, Ala.

With the sort of awe-inspiring views and locales that make up most of Anchorage, its other selling points are almost negligible — it’s hard to oversell this magnificent city. Anchorage hosts an excellent economy and fantastic transit, but its true merits are for those who are seeking to start a new life for the experiences, not the establishment.

Hosting some of the highest tourism numbers in the country, you really can’t go wrong with Anchorage. There’s a reason so many people come here to visit: fine cuisine, visible wildlife, and the perfect combination of urban, rural, and nature.

Washington, D.C.

The District of Columbia is a beautiful and highly spirited place at the center of America’s political culture. Among the beautiful and famous districts like Foggy Bottom, Georgetown, or the internationally acclaimed Smithsonian Museum, Washington boasts more than enough to satisfy the curiosity and awe of any citizen.

Washington D.C. has a successful economy with jobs across every faction of the private and public sectors, and its education system is one of the highest ranking in the United States. If you and your family are seeking a place to start over, Washington D.C. offers the culture, economy, and education to fulfill your every need.

With the wide variety of cities across the U.S., it’s hard to decide which one to live in. The top six contenders featured here are but a few of many cities known around the world, but they truly are the top of their class with regards to starting over. Many places have niche purposes, specialties, and cater to specific crowds, but the six cities in this list are excellent examples of all-encompassing socio-ecosystems that any person or family would perfectly be happy in.
