About This Quiz

Cities tend to take on a life and a personality all their own. Whether it’s a bright metropolis brimming with sounds, vehicles, and people, or a sleepy town where everything runs slow, each city is perfect for a certain type of character. The only trick is to find the one that suits your personality perfectly.

Every U.S. city has its specific combination of characteristics, and every city has its own culture, along with its own vibes. People who are drawn to peace and quiet won’t enjoy the crazy pace at which life passes in New York City. Similarly, an urban, active person who constantly challenges themselves and enjoys the perks of a fast city life won’t find much happiness living in serene Malibu, no matter how beautiful the city might be.

Choosing the right city for your personality is similar to choosing a life partner. If done right, you will enjoy each other’s company and never wish to part ways. However, in case of a mismatch, you might never find true happiness in a certain city.

In case you have been wondering which city in the United States matches your personality, here’s the chance to find out. Brace yourself and take this quiz to see which city you should call home!
