A Great Places to Live

Great Places to Live Are Not Hard to Find!

Most of us want to live in the best communities, where the neighborhoods are safe and the people are friendly. It has been my experience that great places to live are not too hard to find if you take some simple steps and have a good plan of attack.

The first thing to do is use the internet to do some research. All kinds of web sites will give you information on different communities, from housing prices to the local school districts to crime rates to median household income. People have different ideas about great places to live, and you can see the information for yourself and make that determination.

Another great way to find out is to post a question to a web site about the city. They are not usually hard to find, and you should just be honest and say that you are looking for a good place to live and wanted to find out some people’s thoughts about a particular community. It has been my experience that you will receive a number of responses filled with first-hand, personal experiences.

Many communities have their own web sites that advertise themselves as one of the great places to live, but you can find out a lot about a community through their own web site, as well. Such things as police and fire department information, information about the city council and all kinds of things on the rights of citizens can be found on these sites.

One of the most important things to do if you’re looking for great places to live is to make a trip to the communities in which you are interested. You should not just drive through the town, either. Make it a point to get out of your car, stop in shops, have a bite to eat and mingle with some of the locals. You can tell a lot about a town by how friendly the people are.
My wife and I were looking for great places to live and just asked some of our friends what they knew about a couple of different towns and cities. It is amazing what people know, or who they might know who has lived in one of the towns and their experiences living there. Word of mouth can be a great way to learn about communities.

There are numerous ways to find out what are some of the great places to live, and you don’t have to move there in order to find out. If you just take a little time out of your schedule to do some research and then compare the pros and cons to your own community, you might be surprised by what you discover.

Places to Stay for your Italy Vacation

Places to Stay for your Italy Vacation

When you travel to Italy you can be rest assured that accommodations will not be a problem. Remember that this is one of the biggest tourist destinations in the world, so there is a healthy helping of hotels, villas, inns, and bed and breakfasts to choose from. You may be on a budget, you may want to live in luxury, you may want to experience Italy in the home of an Italian or you may be traveling in a group and prefer to stay at a place that can accommodate everyone. All the largest international hotels chains have a place in Italy, so if that is what you prefer then there will be plenty of choices – especially in Rome.

During your vacation to Italy, you will find that there is something to suit everyone’s needs. However, to completely experience Italy on your vacation it is recommended that you stay at a small bed and breakfast if you can. Most of these are family run and you will hear all kinds of stories, folklore and little known facts that may not be in any of the guide books you may have with you on your Italy vacation.

If you are traveling in style and you are visiting Venice, you may want to consider staying at the Novecento Boutique Hotel. It is a chic bed and breakfast that is family run and offers luxurious accommodations. 30 minutes from the airport and offering free internet services, this hotel is modern but still maintains the old Venetian feel to it that will be appreciated by even the most discerning visitors. It is very close to many of Venice’s main attractions and with only 9 rooms, it is most suited to smaller groups or pairs. Most of the rooms have antiques collected by the owners through their own world travels, and the bathrooms are especially large. The food here is said to be excellent and this boutique hotel is noted for its peaceful setting even for being as close as it is to all the action in Venice. This is the perfect place to stay if you are in Venice for your Italy vacation.

If you are visiting Florence, you should consider staying at a place called The Artist’s Residence. Florence is the seat of Italy’s artistic soul and this bed and breakfast is the perfect place to experience the renaissance. It is in the middle of old Florence and is furnished with 19th century sculptures created by Giovanni Dupre. The present owners of the bed and breakfast are his descendants. You will find original florentino tiled floors and even the bar counter was a confessional from 1500AD.  Some bedrooms have terraces, and you may be able to see the courtyard gardens from your terrace. Breakfast here is also said to be excellent and there are numerous restaurants close by to choose from for your other meals. There are 45 air-conditioned rooms here and also a gym and a solarium. This hotel also provides access to the Internet if you cannot go without it on your Italy vacation.
