Arlington is receiving a distinction on another Best Places to Live list. It ranks among the top ten markets for social seekers, according to a list released by Coldwell Banker.
Arlington ranked seventh on the list. Areas with “Social Seekers” are considered those where residents would rather go out than stay home. These areas are described as “perfect for the hip, trendy and fun at heart.”
The top ten list of social seekers is:
- San Francisco
- Los Angeles
- Brookline, Mass.
- San Diego
- Mountain View, Calif.
The write up of Arlington stated “Arlington residents enjoy quaint cafés, upscale salons and all the activity and entertainment of the nation’s capital.”
Arlington also topped the list as the number one city for Social Seekers in the state of Virginia:
- Tysons Corner
- Belle Haven
- Falls Church
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.
