There are some areas that you might want to avoid and AreaVibes can help you with that.

Based on the demographics, the United States is incredibly diverse. There are so many great options for travel or relocation, but how do you select the perfect destination? It's easy, you visit AreaVibes! With detailed demographic reports including: cost of living, crime, education, health and safety, jobs and education, weather, transportation, local business reviews, housing statistics and more, we can help you find the perfect area to live or travel. Best of all, we do all the work for you. Using a complex algorithm we calculate an overall score for each city and neighborhood based on 10 different metrics so that you can quickly and easily identify great places to live or visit and areas to avoid all together.

If you're still having trouble deciding on your next travel destination or new city to call home, AreaVibes offers even more support. In each city you'll find a comprehensive question and answer forum where you can ask questions about specific areas, answer questions about areas you're familiar with or even meet the people that live in the city that you're exploring. Along with all this useful information we also provide photos of each city and neighborhood. Most of our photos are submitted by residents of that area, so you know they are the real deal, no Photoshop here. Good luck finding the right area and the perfect vibe to go with it!
