What is AreaVibes?

Put simply, we help you find the best places to live in America. We do this by assigning a Livability Score out of 100 to any address, zip code, neighborhood or city that you can think of. The Livability Score is created from a unique algorithm based on various important metrics for each city, including: amenities, cost of living, crime rates, education, employment, housing and weather. The higher the score, the better the city (in our opinion). The lower the score, well, don't say you weren't warned! Once the score is assigned to that particular area, a list of other nearby neighborhoods and cities will also be displayed based on their Livability Scores, creating a list of the best places to live. The list can then be further modified to include the various metrics that are most or least important to you.

Not content with being merely comprehensive, at AreaVibes we believe in getting right under the hood. In addition to the unique AreaVibes Livability Score, we also offer a wealth of demographic information for each neighborhood and city, such as: population, male to female ratio, household income, income per capita, marital status, racial breakdown, languages spoken and much more. AreaVibes also provides in depth information about: crime rates, cost of living, schools, employment, air quality, housing, transportation and weather. At present AreaVibes services more than 35,000 cities and neighborhoods, meaning it has never been easier to access all the information you will ever need to determine if an area is right for you. Finally, AreaVibes also provides neighborhood and city reviews from actual residents who live in the area. Those same residents are also available to answer any questions you might have in the Q&A forum.
