About This Quiz

From amber waves of grain and shining seas, the United States has a great amount of diversity within its borders, from different cultures to different climates. There is so much to explore, with busy cities and unique national treasures in every pocket of every region. As fun as exploring is, it is great to have the perfect place to settle down.

Many people truly belong in the place that they grew up in, and that's a beautiful blessing for their community. Other people feel restless in their hometown, and those souls yearn for a community that will better support their dreams and ideals. Everyone deserves to live in a place that encourages their best self. With the great variety available in the United States, people have the freedom to find the most opportune community for themselves. 

Discovering where you belong, however, is not as easy as it might seem. The regional mannerisms can take a little while to understand, and people can take years to adapt to a new climate. Sometimes, serendipity helps you find out where you belong. Most of the time, you'll need a little help. 

Take this quiz to see whether your soul yearns for the crisp air of the north or the warm breezes of the south.
