The Best Regions to Live in the USA

Regions to Live in the USA

The diverse landscape of the United States offers several excellent places to make your home, whether you favor city living in a metropolis, small-town Americana, or rural life. But you have to keep in mind that not only region but the place to live itself makes a lot of difference to your live. Finding your dream home in the USA is easy with Rentola, which has thousands of outstanding rental properties throughout the country, no matter which region you want to make your home.

These are some of the best parts of the USA to consider when making your next move.

Huntsville, Alabama

A metropolitan city in northern Alabama, Huntsville has risen to become one of the most desirable parts of the United States for people to move to.

Of the 150 most populated cities in the United States, Huntsville is the third cheapest for housing. At the same time, the town’s science, tech, and engineering hubs offer significantly higher than average salaries. When combined, this makes Huntsville a place with one of the highest qualities of life on offer in the USA.

Space is at the forefront of local attractions, with several ties to the US space industry, including the US Space and Rocket center. In addition, residents can revel in the delights of the 19th Century with the Alabama Constitution Hall Park and North Alabama Railroad Museum telling the story of a bygone era.

The city offers a wide range of cuisines, while Monte Sano State Park offers opportunities for skaters, cyclists, and walkers all year round, thanks to the warm climate.

Average monthly rents in Huntsville are around the $1150 mark, making it an attractive destination for those looking to move.

Colorado Springs, Colorado

Set within the Colorado mountains 6000 feet above sea level, Colorado Springs combines the soothing color of nature with all of the metropolitan comforts a modern-day city offers.

With a population of almost ¾ million, Colorado Springs has managed to retain its small-town charm as its grown, with a strong sense of community and friendly people always stopping to give you the time of day.

Sport plays a significant part in Colorado Springs’s life as it hosts the US Olympic and Paralympic training centers, while amateur enthusiasts have countless opportunities to hike, climb, and bike.

Housing is expensive, with average rents between $1500 and $1600 above the national average. However, low property taxes make it attractive for people looking to move to the area, but in a more affordable place than Denver.

These higher housing costs are also offset by reasonable and more affordable access to healthcare, utilities, and transport than in many neighboring cities.

Green Bay, Wisconsin

Perhaps best known for its famed NFL franchise, the Green Bay Packers; Green Bay, which is approximately 100km from Milwaukee, has a thriving arts and culture scene while combining the convenience of a large city with a welcoming small-town vibe.

The city is situated at the mouth of the Fox River, which is now a popular location for watersports, restaurant goers, and cruises while continuing to act as a central shipping hub. The river also provides a woodland walking and cycling trail that runs parallel to the water as it flows towards the Great Lakes.

Green Bay is known for its selection of independent boutiques, home décor shops, and antique stalls, while for those with a taste for ale, the craft beer scene continues to burgeon.

The cost of rental accommodation is well below the national average for a 1- and 2-bedroom property, ranging from $800 for a single-bedroom apartment to $1000 for a second bedroom. Property taxes are more expensive than in other areas. However, this does not detract from the quality of life available in Green Bay.

San Jose, California

The capital of Silicone Valley, San Jose, is a city that combines a diverse population and heritage with a creative and innovative atmosphere.

With tech giants, including Google, located within easy reach of the city, San Jose’s reputation as a hub of the tech world is well-founded. That said, the city is far more than cavernous glass offices housing the great and the good of the technology world.

Downtown San Jose retains several exciting features, including the Winchester Mystery House, which contains more than 160 rooms, and the 120-acre flea market with ponies and a life-size Monopoly board.

Sports fans are well catered for, with the Sharks (NHL), Earthquakes (MLS), and 49-ers (NFL) all within easy reach.

Average monthly rental costs of $3000 are above the national median. The high salaries within San Jose offset this high accommodation cost.

Raleigh and Durham, North Carolina

The research and technology worlds continue to grow in Raleigh and Durham, making it one of the most sought-after regions of the United States for people relocating for work.

Many award-winning restaurants provide a range of mouth-watering cuisines, while craft beer is another thriving local industry, with microbreweries spawning across the area almost weekly.

There are several green spaces for people to enjoy, while the city has a burgeoning music and arts scene, with the Hopscotch festival providing an annual cultural highlight.

The cost of living ties in with the national average, with an apartment costing approximately $1500 to $1600 per month to rent.

Call for entries: Lifebuoy Opens Applications for handwashing ‘Chief Education Officers’

Published

Lifebuoy GHD CEO Globle KV002

Unilever’s Lifebuoy, the world’s number one hygiene soap brand, has launched a creative competition that will see two (2) Chief Education Officers aged between 6-12years appointed to raise awareness on the importance of handwashing among school children.

Leveraging the power of peer-to-peer learning, the ‘CEOs’ will be selected from public and private schools in Ghana to help create impact by teaching other children about handwashing and personal hygiene in a series of fun and exciting activities.

The campaign dubbed ‘Lifebuoy H for handwashing CEOs’ is part of Lifebuoy’s activities to mark Global Handwashing Day which occurs every year on the 15th of October.

 Global handwashing day is an international handwashing campaign dedicated to motivating and mobilizing people worldwide to improve their handwashing habits as a strategy for disease prevention.

In 2020, Lifebuoy launched the H for Handwashing campaign to transform the letter H into a symbol for handwashing and to integrate hygiene awareness into the school curriculum. In 2021, Lifebuoy launched its first ever children’s book- an “H for Handwashing” alphabet book – in which children can explore the Alphabet with Azzy the horse. The book is intended to support school curricula all over the world, whenever and wherever children are taught the ABCs.

This year, Lifebuoy is going a step further by passing on the baton to the next generation who will teach their peers about handwashing, as studies have shown that children are more likely to change their behaviour when influenced by their peers.

Lifebuoy is encouraging Children from public and private schools in Ghana between the ages of 6-12years to take up this unique and exciting challenge.

Parents, Guardians and Teachers are also urged to encourage their children and pupils to participate in the competition by following these guidelines:

  • Share a 30- 45 seconds video of your child reciting their campaign manifesto by explaining what hygiene means to them and how they will promote better hygiene in their schools.
  • All entries must include the #GHD2022 #LifebuoyCEOgh #LifebuoyGHD22 #HforHandwashing hashtag and be submitted on Facebook and Instagram only via the brand’s pages @LifebuoyGhana.
  • Entries are open until the 10th of October, 2022.

The two selected CEOs will get the chance to become part of Lifebuoy’s award-winning ‘H for Handwashing’ movement and receive a certificate from the Unilever Ghana Leadership Team for their participation and commitment to the cause.  As part of celebrations to mark Global Handwashing Day, they will also visit the Unilever headquarters and factories to teach employees the importance of handwashing

The ‘CEOs’ will commit a minimum of ten hours a year to help spread the message of handwashing with soap to other children, at home and in schools. To enable them perform their roles, they will be trained in the use of Lifebuoy’s decade-old and well-proven  behaviour change material which will equip them to take the message forward.

Customers registering their SIM cards at Temporary Registration point at Goaso in Ahafo Region

With only three days to the  September 30, 2022 deadline for SIM registration, MTN is urging its customers to have their SIM cards fully registered to avoid being disconnected.

All customers with voice and data SIM in phones and devices are mandated to register with the Ghana card before the deadline. All SIM cards that are not fully registered at the end of 30th September 2022 will be disconnected from using all services on the network.

Customers who are yet to register should start the process by dialing *404# or use the registration web portal https://simregistrationportal.mtn.com.gh to link their SIM to the Ghana card. Customers who have linked their SIM cards to the Ghana card can complete their registration by either visiting the nearest service centre/agent for the biometric capture or download the SIM Registration Self Service app on google play to complete the registration.

“Customers who are not sure of their status can check their registration status by dialing *400#. “B-Cap Yes” means a customer is fully registered”.

To ensure all customers are fully registered before the 30th of September 2022 deadline, all MTN field staff have been deployed to different locations to check registration status and register customers who have not yet registered their SIM cards.

The Ministry of Communications and Digitalization announced the mandatory re-registration of all SIM cards in Ghana last year. The registration exercise which started in October 2021 is scheduled to end on September 30, 2022.
