Which state is for you?

Much like people, every US state has its own personality. But do you know which state fits your unique personality the best? While there are a number of online quizzes you can take to reveal where you belong, when it comes to moving to America, it can be hard to identify which US state best fits not only your expectations, but your personality. Here at Santa Fe Relocation, we’re taking a look at how you can identify which state matches your personality to easily embark on your next expat adventure in the US.

Intellectual Open Minds

Are you interested in the widest array of intellectual activities such as arts, literature and science? If yes, then luckily for you, there are a number of states that fall into this category. California, Massachusetts and New York are just 3 among all the top American states for those who seek the broadest range of diverse thinking and opinions. But what makes these states so suitable for this personality type? If you are an individual who enjoys the opportunity to truly branch out into both the intellectual and creative aspects of life, these states have world class universities and business environments that reflect this – think Silicon Valley, for example.  Outside of the US, New York is the most known, therefore more easy to imagine in terms of living. This is especially true if you’re an open-minded individual looking to truly integrate with the incredibly diverse communities around you. After all, New York City isn’t known as one of the greatest cities in the world for nothing. It’s a hub unlike any other place on Earth, with great nightlife, amazing food and charm.

The Free Spirited

Are you more of a free-spirited personality who likes to express your individuality? Then Vermont may be for you! This ‘super chill’, North-eastern state offers a relaxed vibe, and provides individuals with the opportunity to truly enjoy their free time. It’s known for its breath-taking fall colours, general outdoor beauty and opportunities to enjoy nature. , In addition, Vermont is the state with the lowest crime rate in America.  While it is known as a laid-back state, Vermont also offers a quirkiness combined with a special New England charm that cannot be missed. Perfect for those seeking a healthier lifestyle, there’s no wonder why the state has more recently seen a high number of people moving in, with 52% of total moves being inbound!

The Discerning Types

Are you resolute in your thinking and ready for a good debate? The discerning types among us may happily thrive in the likes of Pennsylvania. Offering great colleges and universities as well as, affordability and a stable job market, Pennsylvania truly does have it all. Whilst settling in a new state requires some adjusting, you will soon realise its unique offerings. Pennsylvania is a national treasure and is home to the Independence Hall, where both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were created. Imagine all the debating that occurred here historically, and it’s easy to see why a discerning type would feel at home.

The Fun and Frugal

For individuals who enjoy a social local culture but also want to maximize a low cost of living, we have two states in particular that fit this bill.  Florida and Texas offer this unique blend and have a prominent local flair that is all their own. Who doesn’t know about Disney’s Florida empire that includes the Magic Kingdom and Epcot Centre?  Universal Studios has a strong footing here as well.  Your family and friends will definitely want to visit if you choose to live in the Everglade state. Another option is Texas which boasts the 11th largest economy in the world and the US energy industry capital! . Known for its own cuisines of Tex-Mex and Texas BBQ and friendly Texans saying “Hi Y’all!”, this state will quickly capture your heart.  We happen to have our largest US office in Houston, so we love it too!  Both Florida and Texas have a low costing of living, making the lifestyle value high for those who live there.
