The South has some of the coolest cities and towns to live in in the entire country. Whether it's a bustling metropolis or a quaint town, the South has it all. There are so many different factors to consider when thinking about the best places to live. Do you want to live near a body of water? Consider Charleston, SC, right on the Atlantic Coast, or New Orleans, in the heart of the Gulf of Mississippi. How about in a big city? Atlanta is the 11th most populous city in the US. If you're looking to move to a small town in the USA, will you be able to find work there? Consider up-and-coming cities like Birmingham, Memphis, and Little Rock.
