About This Quiz

Cities have personalities. When you think of Portland, Oregon, you think hipster. When you think Boston, you think brick and ivy preppy. Boca Raton screams retirement. We can't help but assign characteristics to cities and other inanimate things. But doing this might help people narrow down things like where they want to go to college or to where they might want to relocate. Finding a city that fits you is half the battle!

One of the reasons we, as humans, assign personalities to cities and places is to achieve some sense of belonging. We want to exist in a place where we feel welcome and at home, and finding that can be difficult. Family, friends and jobs tend to dictate where we live, but what if we let something else be the driving factor? The next time you visit a place, pay attention to how it makes you feel, what the restaurants are like if that's what you care about, how many parks there are if that's your thing, and the overall feeling of the place.

If you're stuck in your location and are looking for a change, take this quiz to find out which city matches your personality, and make your search that much easier!
