17 Cities Every Thirtysomething Should Pick Up And Move To

    Pack your bags. And maybe even a passport.

    We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the best places for thirtysomethings to live. Here's their sound advice.

    1. London

    Let's be real: London is basically a posh version New York, only the people have accents and the museums are free. It's also tradition to leave work and grab a pint with some coworkers (like, every single day). What better way to meet new people?


    2. Cleveland

    Not only does it have great party neighborhoods for you to act like you're in your twenties, but it also has a mix of family-friendly festivals and flea markets to make going into your forties seem even more fun.


    3. Vancouver

    Sand, sea, snow, and mountains. Only in Vancouver.


    4. New York

    Sure the rent is high, but that's the cost of never having to run into the same person (you know who I'm talking about) again if you don't want to. Also, the city leaves so much room for personal and professional growth, no matter what stage you're at in lfe.


    5. San Diego

    6. Johannesburg, South Africa

    Why not start a family in one of the most beautiful and economically-sound cities in Africa?


    7. Seattle

    8. Minneapolis–Saint Paul

    It's mega-affordable, with great food, arts, and music scenes, but you can also enjoy peaceful neighborhoods and beautiful country scenery within minutes of the cities.


    9. Montreal

    10. Atlanta

    11. Portland, Oregon

    1) There's brunch spots galore.

    2) This city is a rising economy, which is great for people looking for upcoming jobs.


    12. Kansas City

    13. Melbourne

    No need to buy a car, 'cause Melbourne has one of the best transportation systems in all of Australia. That, and the coffee is amazing... EVERYWHERE.


    14. Savannah, Georgia

    15. Tempe, Arizona

    16. Houston

    There's adventure in every corner, jobs are plentiful, and a growing number of people moving here are adding to the cultural mix every day. Houston is a world-class city and getting better by the minute.


    17. Sacramento
