If you want to live in a city known for its great credit scores, you better bundle up.
This past winter, credit bureau Experian released their 2016 State of Credit report. The study listed the 10 cities with the best average credit scores in the country. Some were small towns and others were big cities—most were in Minnesota or Wisconsin.
The scores of the top 10 cities started at Madison, Wisconsin’s 702 and topped out at Mankato, Minnesota’s 708.
A little extra research into these scores revealed incomes tended to be higher in these cities, but, based on the research we’ve done, we know that credit scores have a lot to do with on-time payments [...]
Indianapolis is the largest city and capital of the fine state of Indiana. The city is a sprawling metropolis, internationally recognized as a top Food City, an exciting destination for family adventures, and a dynamic opportunity for business growth across a wide range of industries. From the dizzying speed of the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway to a quiet, thoughtful stroll down Massachusetts Avenue Arts District, Indianapolis truly has something to offer everyone, whether visiting for the weekend, buying a home and setting down roots, or opening a new business in the area. Currently, the housing market of Indianapolis is generally considered to be strong, driven in part by [...]
Greetings from the City by the Bay! I just finished a whirlwind visit to San Francisco, the 14th largest city in the U.S. and one of the most exciting.
San Francisco is home to some of the nation’s most inspired landmarks and districts like the Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, and Fisherman’s Wharf. It’s also the center of a diverse and sophisticated culinary scene. Finally, it’s also headquarters for several banking institutions as well as several major companies like Pacific Gas and Electric, Craigslist, Wikipedia, Uber, Twitter, and Mozilla to name a few. For these reasons I found San Francisco to be a fantastic, diverse place to live.
Years ago, if someone mentioned San Diego, your first thought would be the San Diego Chicken. Ok, maybe the marina, too. Now, as California’s second-largest city, San Diego’s reputation has expanded (not that the San Diego Chicken isn’t awesome).
When I visited San Diego, I went to experience the city’s living history. San Diego is a waterfront community that’s bustled since the mid-1700s. It’s got a lengthy (occasionally checkered) past, which influences the existing culture.
Some of the most beautiful parks featuring century-old buildings are those like the San Diego State Historic Park and Mission San Diego de Alcala. My favorite was Balboa Park, home to the famous [...]
As much as I would love to say that Providence, Rhode Island, earned its Renaissance City moniker from locals walking around in period attire, it’s actually because after the 1970s the city experienced a rebirth. My favorite thing about Providence – aside from its artistic and intellectual vibe – is that it’s a relatively small city, but it has all of the cultural appeal of a metropolis.
Founded by Quakers in 1679, Trenton is one of the oldest cities in the U.S. and is a great place for people like me who love being immersed in history.
For example, you know that George Washington boldly crossed the icy Delaware to emerge victorious in battle during the American Revolution, but did you also know that infamous 1776 crossing led him to Trenton?
So, what is there in the city where the American Revolution turned for the better? Well, first there’s the Old Barracks Museum, one of the most interesting sites to visit in Trenton. Not only is it the only British barracks site remaining in North America, it’s also served as a military hospital and is the site of [...]
