Did it suit you?

Here's my recommended list from the quiz:

Sheboygan, Wisconsin
Eau Claire, Wisconsin
Oshkosh-Appleton/Neenah, Wisconsin
Madison, Wisconsin
La Crosse, Wisconsin
Kenosha, Wisconsin
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Champaign-Urbana, Illinois
Danbury, Connecticut
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Eugene, Oregon
Medford, Oregon
Corvallis, Oregon
Green Bay, Wisconsin
Portland, Oregon
Hartford, Connecticut
Chicago, Illinois
Providence, Rhode Island
Oak Park, Illinois
Boston, Massachusetts
Fayetteville, Arkansas
Salem, Oregon
New Haven, Connecticut
Charleston, West Virginia

Interesting...I have looked into or thought about most of the places on this list on my own, but never thought about looking into Wisconsin or Arkansas

YES! Well, sort of. It recommended a couple of cities in the same general area in a part of the country I hadn't really given much consideration to. After looking into the area further I decided I liked it, and I moved to a town about 20 miles from one of the towns at the top f the list. Three years here and couldn't be happier with the area.

I tried it, and I think it made mostly excellent suggestions, including the area in which I already live and many other cities in California, where I was born and raised. So I think it was very helpful and accurate in the recommendations.

It didn't recommend San Jose, CA but that is where I'll be moving anyway.

It was entertaining but didnt really give me what I was looking for. Then again, it must have sensed I was broke.

Find Your Spot is so much fun. I have not moved based upon its recommendations, but it says that I should be in New England, and that is exactly where I would like to go. When I started dating my husband, I had him take the test, and his top answers were nearly the same as mine. We have taken the test over again from time to time. There is a lot of information about the cities on your list once you finish the test, and even though you have to create an account each time you take the test, I have never noticed any spam as a result of signing up. Oh, and I did first try the site based upon the recommendation of an executive coach who had moved from RI to AZ because of Find Your Spot, and she was very happy.

Thanks to everyone who replied.

I am glad it worked out for those who said it did.

I gave a puzzled look to some of the choices the site gave me but I can't rule anything out yet.

I took this when we first started looking 5.5 years ago. It brought up a few places that I hadn't thought of, but ended up visiting like Rochester, NY and Sheboygan, WI.

I would consider living in Rochester, NY after visiting (IF they built a Costco!), but not really in Sheboygan, WI.

We moved to another place suggested on the list here in the Puget Sound area and love it.
