If you want to get out, meet people and have a good time, is Huntington Woods the place to be?
According to Coldwell Banker Real Estate, it is. The company has ranked the "Best Place to Live" in the United States and for those identified as "social seekers," Huntington Woods is a popular place to be.
The "Best Places to Live" series is a partnership with the real estate data service Onboard Informatics, and ranks U.S. cities in several lifestyle categories including Social Seekers, Suburbanites, Adventurers, Leisure Lovers and Culture Cravers.
So far, only the winners in the Social Seekers categories have been revealed and the list is topped by a number of familiar names: Manhattan, San Francisco, Chicago and Los Angeles.
However, Huntington Woods is one of five Michigan cities to be named a popular spot for sociable folks, alongside Ann Arbor, East Lansing, Birmingham and Rochester.
According to a post by Coldwell Banker's David Siroty on the company's Blue Matter blog, the Social Seekers list ranks the places "which are perfect for the hip, trendy and fun at heart – those who would rather go out than stay at home any night of the week."
"As our previous research shows, Americans believe that their home is a reflection of their identity and that clearly goes beyond the property line and into the communities where they live," said Budge Huskey, president and CEO of Coldwell Banker in a recent press release. "By ranking the best places to live by lifestyle interests and personalities, we're able to get to the heart of what makes individual cities and towns so special."
