Out of all the online quizzes that were popular a year or two ago, one site actually made available a worthwhile survey that helps guide you towards places that you might like to live: FindYourSpot.com. Answer a few pages of questions about lifestyle, climate, etc. and you are given a series of locations that you might want to consider for your next big move.
For mine, I was looking for a small-medium sized town in close proximity to cultural activities, preferably progressive in nature. I also noted that I like snow during my winters and I enjoy warm (but not hot) summers. Tops on my list: Northampton, Massachusetts (“This small town at the foot of the Berkshires has been recognized for its cultural offerings, many of which are supported by the area’s five colleges”), Andover, Massachusetts, and Johnson, Vermont (“The Lamoille and Gihon rivers, crossed by antique covered bridges, meet in this Vermont mountain town”). While most of my recommendations were limited to the northeast, one from the west coast popped up: Arcata, California (“This vibrant community shines in the midst of the county ranked #1 in the nation for natural amenities”).
