  4. Los Angeles
  5. Seattle
  6. Brookline, Mass.

  5. Belle Haven

The Social Seekers list is the first lifestyle category ranking that Coldwell Banker is releasing in its “Best Places to Live” series. Four others will follow in the categories of Suburbanites, Adventurers, Leisure Lovers and Culture Cravers.

“Americans believe that their home is a reflection of their identity and that clearly goes beyond the property line and into the communities where they live,” said Budge Huskey, president and chief operating officer, Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. “Social Seekers are drawn to the nightlife and action, while others we will explore in the series might prefer backyard barbecues and carpooling.”

The list was compiled based on a number of attributes such as access to transportation, high volume of bars and restaurants, happening nightlife and great entertainment. More information about the list of Best Places to Live can be found online.
