You're always on the cutting edge of what's cool and trendy, Aries. While other people follow the crowd and flock to more popular metropolitan areas, you prefer to seek out the hidden gems—as long as they have equal access to nature and bustling nightlife. Austin, Texas checks these boxes, with the perfect mix of city fun and Southern charm. Plus, it has plenty of art and culture, which is important since you have endless energy. You're sure to feel right at home in the Lone Star State.

Taurus: Madison, Wisconsin

You're a lover of the slow life, Taurus. So the typical hustle and bustle of the big city doesn't appeal to you. But as the foodie of the zodiac, it goes without saying that the food and drink scene needs to be top of mind when choosing a location to settle down. If you're looking for a city that strikes the perfect mix of comfort and indulgence, Madison is an under-the-radar gem that you'll never want to leave. And even though this location will let you indulge in the finer things, it's relatively affordable, another important consideration for you.

You're all about the vibe, Cancer. Whether it's choosing your best friends or deciding what to eat for dinner, you go based on what feels right.

You'll fit in great with the folks in New Orleans, where people are extra-friendly and all the food tastes like delicious home cooking. And if you're ever looking to really get away, you're just a quick car ride away from calm waters and sandy shores.

You like things to be orderly and well run, but that doesn't mean you're boring! Some people mistake your love of predictability as resistance to change, but the truth is that you just like efficiency. Therefore, you thrive in cities with well-established public transit, thoughtful infrastructure, and public good in mind. Washington, D.C. is probably the best example of this type of city in the U.S. Your practical side will thrive in the orderly design of the nation's capital, while your curious side won't be able to get enough of all the free museums and historic sites right in your own backyard.

It might sound appealing to travel to a big city like LA or NYC where you can show off and enjoy the luxury lifestyle. But as someone who is always working around the clock, the best locale for you isn't one that never stops—it's one that has a calming effect. St. Augustine is the oldest city in the U.S. and is full of rich traditions and history.

Portland is known for its thriving culture, unique architecture, and pioneering ideals. Nestled near the coast with plenty of natural beauty in every direction, you'll feel right at home among the friendly folks who call this town home.

You're a hopeless romantic, Pisces, and you tend to feel more connected to nature than people. It's not that you're not friendly; in fact, you are more understanding and empathetic than most. This is why you need to be in a place where you can quickly escape into the quiet stillness of nature to recharge your batteries. Juneau is a beautiful gem of a city with a close-knit community and plenty of space to slip away and forget your troubles. And, of course, it doesn't hurt that you're just a stone's throw away from the ocean.
