4) Rochester

Rochester, in Western New York, is a great place to live for people who want the advantages associated with large cities but with a more close-knit community atmosphere. The city is home to over 200,000 residents. The median home price is a low $76,600, although median household income is also relatively low, at under $31,000. That being said, Rochester has many job opportunities in a variety of fields. In particular, photographers will have a fantastic time soaking up the photography history of Rochester, and both Kodak and Xerox are centered in the city. For people who are drawn to the vibrancy of cities, Rochester’s many festivals, revolving around food, dance, innovation, and more, will be highly attractive. Rochester is known for its cold and snowy winters, so people who prefer that sort of climate will also do well here.
