I don't know about you, but I like to live somewhere beautiful. Some people can get away with living in the middle of a big city, with steel and concrete always in your face and horns blaring constantly. Not me. I prefer to live somewhere where, with just a look out of the window, I can touch trees and stone buildings; where the ordinary things of life are of such a quality to raise your spirits by just looking at them. But I'm rambling, I know. Let's examine the place that I'm talking about: Malden, Mass. See, here's the thing: if there's any place in the United States that's pretty much ideal to live, it's the East Coast. You've got forests, mountains, rivers, lakes and historic sites aplenty, just a couple hours away. Additionally, if you're a parent, there's no shortage of good schools throughout the entire coast. Malden is the perfect living place for those interested in those kinds of things. Additionally, the town itself is a charming example of quaint, antique-style American architecture. If you're a parent, then Malden is an especially good choice, as it's considered the safest city in all of Massachusetts - that's why I relocated there. All in all, it's not a bad place to live. There are a few downsides, however. For example, unless you're working out in the town, there's a good chance that your commute is going to be one heck of a lot longer than it would be if you were living in, say, Boston. Also, the living expenses are not exactly cheap - unless your salary is comfortably in the mid-to-high five-digit range, you likely might have some trouble keeping the house or apartment. This may be especially difficult if you're a new parent.
