Best Big Cities to Live In

There are plenty of advantages to living in a big city. There are so many things to do and so much culture around, but it seems that some big cities aren't affordable or aren't great to raise a family in. However, that's not always the case. Here are a few fantastic places to consider if you're looking to move to a big city. 


Dallas, Texas
The Dallas metroplex has something for everyone. It's extremely family oriented with places such as the Perot Museum, Kyle Warren Park and Six Flags. There are an abundance of great areas to choose from with different price points as far as housing. There are so many schools to choose from as well depending on what you want for your children. All of the areas offer public school, and most areas have both private and charter school options to choose from as well. Dallas also offers plenty of sports teams to cheer for, but if that's not your thing, you'll definitely want to check out the music scene in the area.


St. Louis, Missouri
When you think of St. Louis, you probably picture Gateway Arch National Park. While this is somewhere you'll probably want to visit frequently, there's so much more to St. Louis as well. St. Louis has an interesting music scene, as well as some fantastic restaurants for you to check out. The city is looking at bringing in some large tech companies in the next few years, so now is the perfect time to buy a house there and find moving companies St Louis to help unload your belongings.


Denver Colorado
If you enjoy spending most of your time outdoors, Denver may just be the perfect city for you. There are plenty of parks for you to visit during the warmer months, and Denver is a very walking friendly city. In the winter, you can find plenty of skiing in the surrounding areas. Denver is growing rapidly, so there are plenty of good job prospects out there. If you don't want to live right in the city, there are plenty of great suburbs around that are within driving distance to downtown.

Be sure to do your research and go visit the city before you decide to settle down there. You want to make sure you find the perfect fit for you and your family. After all, this is where you plan to live for quite a while, so it's definitely not a decision you want to rush into.
