I am sure many of you have done this, but it is still kind of fun. The quiz takes less than 10 minutes, and it does a pretty good job of finding ideal places for you to live.
Best Places to Live: Compare the Best Cities & Small Towns for You!

List the Top 3 Places and how accurate you think they are.

My top 3:
Portland, OR
Hartford, CT
Baltimore, MD

I would say they are pretty accurate. I have been thinking about Portland for a while now, and many people on this site have told me that Baltimore would be a good place for me. I don't know much about Hartford. My ideal places to live are the NE and NW, so it was pretty accurate.

Enjoy.

Oh that was rich! Here are my top 5

1. Hartford, CT
2. Portland, OR
3. Providence, RI
4. New Haven, CT
5. Boston, MA

Boston and Providence are the only two I'd ever consider relocating to. I checked several regions of the country, but I guess my other responses pointed mostly to New England.

These sort of polls are always amusing, especially when you do them and your own area comes up.

I had one quiz (not the one you linked) and put in things like 'affordable housing' as a top priority and Long Island (where I live) came up. It's like, HELLO, I said AFFORDABLE housing.
