I'll admit it....I'm a sucker for all those surveys on Facebook. No, not the ones asking "how redneck are you" or "which character are you on Orange is the New Black". I'm talking about the surveys that reveal interesting little nuggets about the towns and cities where we live, work, and play. Recently my hometown of Richmond, VA has racked up all kinds of interesting kudos and feathers in its cap, such as:
- One of the happiest cities in the United States
- The fourth fastest growing real estate markets in the country (CNN Money, 2014)
- A vibrant street art scene (who knew we had so many famous murals on the sides of buildings?)
- The best place for budding entrepreneurs to launch start up companies
- An endless playground for those who love the outdoors
Some of these things I've known about for a long time; for example, the parks and trails surrounding the James River are always teeming with joggers, dogs, and paddle boarders. However, the claim from CNN Money magazine that RVA is one of the ten hottest real estate markets in the US caught my attention. It makes sense that with so many economic and educational opportunities in Richmond, and its success as a "happy" place to live, it's no wonder more people are looking to call Richmond home.
What's filling up your Facebook feed (or the front page of your newspaper) regarding your hometown? I'm hoping the news for your neck of the woods is, as the song says, "happy."
